I’m Hale, Hearty, Says Awujale of Ijebuland

The Awujale of Ijebuland in Ogun State, Sikiru Adetona, has dispelled the rumours that he was dead.
He said he is alive, hale and hearty, contrary to widespread rumours about his demise.
The 83-year old monarch, who is spending his 57th year on the throne was reported to have died over the weekend.
However, the monarch debunked the rumours, wondering why people would want to spread falsehood.
The Awujale has for the past week been a guest of Oriental Hotel in Victoria Island, in Lagos, where he has been staying after a routine medical check-up in a Lagos hospital, two weeks ago.
Awujale expressed surprise that people could go such a length to spread rumours about his death without confirming from the palace in Ijebu-Ode or from his chiefs.
“Why are people spreading rumours about my death, when I am right here at Oriental”, asked the Monarch.
He enjoined journalists to check veracity of their information, before rushing to publish.
