Olori Nike Aromolaran, the second wife of an Osun State monarch, Owa Obokun of Ijesaland, Oba Adekunle Aromolaran, has died.

The PUNCH, quoting an anonymous source close to the palace of the royal father reports that the deceased died in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Confirming the report on Monday, a community leader in Ilesha, Mr. Wale Idowu, said that the death of Olori Nike has brought about a melancholic mood.

Idowu said, "Olori Nike Aromolaran, the second wife, sadly answered the home call. It is a pensive mood around here. We know God gives and at the appointed time, He takes.

"We pray that God will grant our Kabiesi, the immediate family, the extended family, as well as Ijesa home and abroad the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss."

He however declined to give further details about the incident.
