Surprisingly, according to the eye witness, the deceased checked his blood pressure and drove himself to the palace on the morning of the incident.
“He tried to pacify the factions in the crisis and was very philosophical. He was pleading with both parties to be calm and see the outcome being peaceful. It was along the line that he slumped and was rushed to the hospital. It all happened inside the town hall.
I sat next to him. It amused us all. He was humble and a role model for us all.” Confirming the incident, police spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, said the deceased was rushed to a hospital when he collapsed and was confirmed dead last Sunday.
Opalola said the late Ajiboso was presiding over a peace meeting between the community’s Muslim groups over who takes over as the Chief Imam of the town when he collapsed.
