Family of Oba who died in UK hospital begs government for £8,000 to fly body home


Eight thousand GBP is needed to fly the remains of the late Akarigbo and Paramount Ruler of Remoland, Oba Michael Adeniyi Sonariwo, back ‎to Nigeria.

The traditional ruler, who was the current chairman of Ogun State Council of Obas, had traveled out of the country to the United Kingdom for medical check-up before he eventually last Saturday.

But speaking in a telephone interview with reporters Monday, a prominent monarch and the Ewusi of Makun, Sagamu, Oba ‎Timothy Oguntayo, said the Remo Traditional Council would need £8,000 to fly the remains of the late Akarigbo back to Nigeria.

Oba Akinsanya disclosed that the council had already sent a representative to the state government help in meeting the expenses.

“We have delegated the Asiwaju of Remoland to meet with the governor in a bid to help us in raising the £8,000 expenses needed to bring the monarch back home", he said

“We are really waiting for the government to assist us now. The earlier we get the government’s assistance, the better.”

The Ewusi said the passage rite for the departed Akarigbo would commence as soon as the body was brought back home.
