Anxiety in Ibadan As Reports Say Iyalode is dead
Reports have it that the Iyalode of Ibadanland, the only female member of the Olubadan-in-Council, Alhaja Aminat Abiodun, has passed away.
Sources say she died in the early hours of today.
Efforts to get official confirmation from sources at the Olubadan’s palace are yet to yield results with some chiefs saying they are also hearing the news.
The Iyalode is the only female member of the 11-member Olubadan-in-Council. She is the representative of all women in Ibadanland. She was installed as the 13th Iyalode of Ibadanland on October 19, 2007, following the death of former Iyalode, Mrs Wuraola Akintola.
