The remains of Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi have been buried according to the tradition and culture of yoruba land.

The monarch was buried in a vault, Baara, reserved for Alaafins, around 10pm on Saturday.

The Chief Imam of Oyo, Alhaji Moshood Ajokideru, had earlier in the day led other Islamic clerics to pray on the remains of Oba Adeyemi.

The prayer session lasted only three minutes after which the casket was taken back inside the palace, awaiting the final burial, which the Basorun of Oyo, who is the Head of the Oyo Mesi, High Chief, Yusuf Ayoola, announced would take place around 9pm.

Traditionalists immediately took over the burial process after the Islamic prayers.

Unlike some monarchs in yorubaland who were buried in the full glare of the public and during the day, Oba Adeyemi’s body was only prayed on in the public but was interred by the traditionalists in the night.
