It was a shocker recently when reports filtered-in that Oba Idowu Abiodun Oniru, the paramount ruler of Oniruland has gone to join his ancestors.
Daily Advent gathered that the prominent Lagos Monarch, passed on after a brief illness. He was 82years old.
Watch his final burial ceremony below:
The newly departed Oba attended St David’s Primary School and Araromi Baptist School on Lagos Island and then went to Eko Boys High School for his secondary education.
In 1965, he left Nigeria to study civil engineering at the British Institute of Engineering Technology in Slough. He returned to Nigeria in 1968, to join his father run the family business. Under his reign Iruland grew to become Nigeria’s most valued real estate.
