In a statement issued on Sunday by Olawale Rasheed, the spokesperson for the Osun State Governor, Adeleke described Oba Adedapo’s passing as “touching and painful.” He offered condolences to the traditional council, the people of Ido-Osun, and Oba Adedapo’s family, noting the monarch’s dedication to peace and progress.


“My condolences to the people of Ido-Osun in Egbedore Local Government on the loss of their traditional ruler, Oba Aderemi Adeen Adedapo, Sapoyoro I. Oba Adedapo was a highly dedicated monarch who prioritized the progress of his subjects and Ido-Osun,” the statement read.


Adeleke highlighted the monarch’s professional background in law and architecture, emphasizing how Oba Adedapo used his expertise to benefit his community. “His demise is a significant loss, and I join the people of Ido-Osun in honoring a life full of impactful contributions,” he stated.


The governor encouraged everyone to uphold Oba Adedapo’s legacy of good deeds and societal betterment. “May God Almighty be pleased with his soul and grant him eternal rest. It is my fervent hope that everyone touched by Oba Adedapo’s demise finds comfort in the impactful life he lived,” Adeleke added.


Oba Adedapo, a close ally of the late Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade, served as the Secretary General of the Council of Yoruba Obas during his lifetime.
