Remains of Ohinoyi of Ebiraland arrives Home in Okene

The late Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Abdulrahman Ado-Ibrahim, who passed away in the early hours of Sunday in an Abuja hospital, has been transported to his hometown, Okene, for a dignified funeral.

The Secretary of the Ebiraland Traditional Council, Yunusa Sule, expressed deep sorrow over the monarch’s demise, describing it as a significant loss for the Ebiraland community.

Yunusa Sule disclosed to reporters in Lokoja that the revered traditional ruler had been receiving medical treatment for an age-related ailment for three weeks before he succumbed to the illness.

The news of his passing has left the entire Ebiraland in shock and mourning, with Sule emphasizing the profound impact of Ado-Ibrahim’s leadership and paternal role, not only within Ebiraland but across Kogi State and Nigeria.

Abdulrahman Ado-Ibrahim was born on February 7, 1929, and held the distinction of being the fourth traditional ruler to ascend to the esteemed position of Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, a title he assumed in 1997.

Prior to his enthronement, he enjoyed a successful career as a businessman, residing in Lagos.
