Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state, Sunday, described the death of three traditional rulers from Oriire local government area of the state as shocking.

Governor Makinde expressed condolences to their immediate families, the people of Oriire local government and Ogbomosoland as well as the Council of Obas and Chiefs in the state.
The governor prayed for the repose of the souls of the deceased, while also praying that God would grant their immediate families, their subjects and the state as a whole the fortitude to bear the loss.
“It is a very sad and saddening development. We can only pray that the Almighty God will grant repose to their souls and grant their families, their subjects and the whole state the fortitude to bear the loss,” he stated.
