The burial–the end

The family sent out the dummy to control the massive crowd already awaiting the remains of the corpse as well as allow for easier crowd control.

The burial also ended the controversy over his final resting place.

Ajimobi’s family wanted him buried in his home in Agodi GRA.

But the Seyi Makinde government disallowed it because the land was under litigation.

Instead, it supported the burial in Oluyole, his first home in Ibadan built over 40 years ago.
