The death rumours of The Akran of Badagry went viral on the internet last week and this has caused concerns in the community.
Oba Aholu Menu-Toyi, the Akran of Badagry, has dispelled death rumours concerning him, saying he is hale and hearty.
The royal father made the denial at a press conference Wednesday, describing the death rumours as a figment of the imagination of some mischievous people.
“I am hale and hearty. I attend royal engagements within and outside this community daily,” he said.
Also reacting to the death rumours, Chief Ajose, the Setenme of Badagry Kingdom said: “The internet is a versatile tool for getting vital information, but some unpatriotic, shameless, lawless and godless elements use it negatively.
It is imperative at all times we promote veracity and transparency in all our dealings as global citizens but we should not allow this kind of anti-social news to form our judgement about issues affecting us,” Chief Ajose said, praying for God’s guidance and blessing for the Royal Father.
