Speaking during an interview with AIT, the monarch’s widow said her husband had called telling her that he was hungry and should prepare a meal before he arrived at his palace.
 
Yetunde Ogunsakin said she became worried after several hours and decided to call the traditional ruler, but he did not answer.
 
She said, “He called me when he reached Ajowa that he was coming, that he was hungry, and I should prepare something for him. Ajowa to this place, I was not checking time, that it is not supposed to take more than one hour. Getting to one hour, one hour plus, I was calling his phone. He did not pick.”

Also speaking on the monarch’s demise, a community leader from Esun Ekiti, Chief Niyi Ojo, said, “I was shocked when I was called around 4:30 to be informed that he has been attacked by assailants and that he was killed in the process with a fellow Kabieyesi, Onimojo of Imojo.”
