A horrific car accident at the Arinkinkin area of Ogbomoso on Friday claimed the lives of three traditional rulers in the Oriire local government area of Ogbomoso zone in Oyo state.
The three deceased Obas from the Oriire local government are Olodogbo of Odogbo, Onibowula of Bowula, and Alayetoro of Ayetoro.
The monarchs were said to be attending the burial ceremony of the mother of another traditional ruler, Oloolo of Oolo Oba Oyebunmi Ajayi.
