We previously reported on the demise of Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, the renowned monarch and Alaafin of Oyo.
The 83-year-old monarch passed away just a few hours ago, and he was the longest-reigning Alaafin in history, ruling for five decades.
He died only a few months after the two other senior Oyo State monarchs, Saliu Adetunji, the Olubadan of Ibadan, and Jimoh Oyewumi, the Soun of Ogbomoso.
Nigerians have reacted to his passing, and the following are some of the reactions we gathered:
