But a first-class Oba in Ogun West Senatorial district, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed the incident.

He expressed worry over why the monarch decided to commute in a tricycle instead of a personal car.

As of the time of this report, our correspondent could not verify whether or not the late monarch had a car of his own.

It was gathered that the monarch’s remains have been deposited at the General Hospital, Ota.
