Nigeria’s Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has said late Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, was working to resolve the political fallout between himself and former Lagos governor Bola Tinubu before his death.

This was revealed by Aregbesola in his statement, mourning the demise of the king.

“He (Late Oba Adeyemi) was a major player in the effort to settle the rift between me and my principal (referring to Mr Tinubu) and he was still working on it till he passed on,” he said.

Aregbesola and Tinubu have not been in the best of terms, following political fallout resulting in Aregbesola’s preference of Mosood Adeoti over Mr Tinubu’s anointed incumbent Gboyega Oyetola.
