It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing on of Oba Okunade Sijuwade Olubuse II, who was the Imperial Majesty of the throne of Ife until his death yesterday in London.
Oba Sijuwade was a man of charisma who possessed great leadership qualities that we admired. He was a man whom we all respected even for his entrepreneurial acumen. According to reports, he was born on the 1st of January, 1930 and was crowned King in 1980 at the age of 50.
Our heart and prayers are with his family at this time.
