The Palace of the Alaafin has announced that the rumoured death of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III is fake news.

Giving this information on Saturday, Bode Durojaiye, the Director, Media and Publicity to the Alaafin in a signed statement said that the news making the rounds was the handiwork of a disgruntled group of bloggers.

"It has come to the notice of the Office of the Director of Media and Publicity to the Alaafin of Oyo about a fake report making the wave in the social media, by a disgruntled group of bloggers, about the imaginary death of His Imperial Majesty, Iku Baba Yeye, Oba (Dr.) Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, the Alaafin of Oyo.

"Members of the public are hereby urged to disregard the unfounded report, as the Paramount Ruler is hale and hearty.

"Precisely on Monday and Tuesday this week, Oba Adeyemi, accompanied by some of his wives (Ayabas), children, aides and well-wishers were at the Durbar Stadium, Oyo, for physical fitness exercises as usual.

"He has neither fallen sick nor rushed to the hospital for any serious ailment, hence he and his family remain agile and active.

"The general public should not entertain any fear at all, as Iku Baba Yeye is healthy, physically fit and mentally stable."
