Ninety-five years old former Nigerian Ambassador to Zambia and Malawi, the Otun of Oyo land Chief Moses Oyedele Ogunmola is dead
The deceased died on Sunday shortly after he was brought from Oyo into a private health facility in Ibadan.
Late Chief M.O Ogunmola served as an administrator, culture enthusiast, and a foremost chief in the council of the late Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, the late Alaafin of Oyo
He was one of the first graduates from the ancient town and was said to have single-handedly built the popular Ladigbolu Grammar School, Oyo. Since its creation, only two buildings have been added by the y government to structures within the institution.
That feat earned him the Asiwaju of Oyo from Alaafin Siyanbola Ladigbolu and Otun of Oyo from Alaafin Lamidi Adeyemi III.
This newspaper recalled that the deceased, who died and would have been 96 next year, was a chairman of the old Oyo local government as well as that of the Western Nigeria Development Commission, WNDC (now Odu’a).
He’s loved by Oyo and surely he’ll be greatly missed for his passion for the growth and development of the Oyo empire.
