Oba Samuel Durodola Afolabi II, the Onilua of Ilualand in Kajola local government area of the Oyo state, has reportedly passed on.
The monarch, who was possibly considered to be the oldest king in Nigeria, died at the age of 141, in the early hours of Saturday, May 23.
Imran Khalid, in Oyo state, revealed that the king passed on after a brief illness associated with old age.
Oba Samuel Afolabi II became the king of Ilua 38 years ago when he was 102 years old.
He was born in 1879 into the family of Afolabi and became the king after the death of Oba Majaro in 1981.
Afolabi, the Onilua of Ilualand in Kajola LGA in Oyo, was the oldest monarch in Nigeria.
It was revealed that Oba Afolabi was a commercial farmer before the community leaders and kingmakers unanimously agreed to make him the king of Ilualand.
Oba Afolabi contributed greatly to the growth and development of Ilualand, Kajola Local Government, and Oyo state as a whole.
