Death is inevitable! The prayer of everyone is to live long.
Drums were rolled out with pomp and pageantry on Saturday, 23rd April, 2016, as the Adele Olu of Ilaro, High Chief Jas Oyekan, celebrated his 70th birthday. As expected, the event was graced by respected personalities from all walks of life. “Long life and prosperity” was the prayer of everyone as they joined an icon to celebrate.
Alas! Things were destined to change! That was Adele’s last birthday! The city of Ilaro was stormed to hear the passing on of the Adele Olu of Ilaro few days after his birthday. According to reports, he died today, 26th April 2016, after a brief illness.
High Chief Jas Oyekan; a philanthropist, family man per-excellence and a respected elder, survived by wives, children and grandchildren.
May his soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.
Drop your condolences for the family.

Anyway, we’re rest assured coz Adele lives on!
