Ajimobi’s Burial : The media debacle and counter reports bordering on the true state of Senator Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi was finally laid to rest earlier today, June 26, 2020 as news of his death was eventually broke and was confirmed by family sources and aides.
However, in an exclusive discovery by e-nigeria!, the former Oyo State governor is yet to be buried according to Muslim custom which requires immediate burial when one dies. This is as against initial plans for his burial earlier in the day, an insider told our correspondent.
According to our source, the family of late Ajimobi is divided at the moment and this has given way to confusion which is now delaying the funeral.
E-nigeria! exclusively gathered that some members of the family of the deceased believe there is more to his death and would be convinced otherwise only if an autopsy is conducted on his body before he can be buried.
Another burning issue stalling 70 year-old Ajimobi’s burial borders on his burial spot, an insider revealed. According to him, “it is yet to be decided where the deceased would be buried. Opinions regarding his burial spot have resulted in serious context between his larger and nuclear family with no conclusion in sight at the moment”.

There were frantic efforts by Ajimobi’s family to cover up the initial news of his death until hours ago.
