Late Ajimobi did not get a befitting State burial, expected for former governor, by protocol.
But the former Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi has been buried at his Oluyole estate residence against the wishes of his immediate family
Ajimobi who died on Thursday was buried some minutes after 10am.
The remains was buried amid tight security.
The burial was witnessed by his wife, children as well as very close associates.
Meanwhile, hundred of associates, friends and supporters were awaiting the body at the Senator Ishiaq Abiola Ajimobi Central Mosque, Oke Ado.
The family sent out the dummy to control the massive crowd already awaiting the remains of the corpse as well as allow for easier crowd control.
The burial also ended the controversy over his final resting place.
Ajimobi’s family wanted him buried in his home in Agodi GRA.
But the Seyi Makinde government disallowed it because the land was under litigation.
Instead, it supported the burial in Oluyole, his first home in Ibadan built over 40 years ago.
Kano State Governor Abdulahi Ganduje; his Ekiti State counterpart Dr. Kayode Fayemi; Oyo State Deputy Governor Rauf Olaniyan; his Lagos State counterpart Obafemi Hamzat and Speaker Lagos State House of Assembly Mudashiru Obasa were among the dignitaries who came to pay last respect to the late Abiola Ajimobi in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, on Sunday.
Ajimobi, former Oyo State governor, died of COVID-19 complications at a private hospital in Lagos last Thursday. He was buried privately on Sunday morning in his Oluyole, Ibadan home amid sobs by children and relations. His remains were interred at about 10am after the Chief Imam of Ibadan land, Sheik Ajigbotomokekere, led prayers for the repose of the deceased’s soul
