A death has been announced of Prince Ajibade Onibokun, 55, one of the political rising stars in State of Osunin OriAde Local Government of Osun State. A native of Iwoye Ijesa, resident of USA, he passed away on Monday, October 28 at 10:30 am at Upstate University Hospital after he lost his battle against a combination of heart and kidney failures.
