Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Ado Ibrahim buried in Okene


The remains of Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Alhaji Ado Ibrahim, have been buried in Okene, Kogi State.

Ibrahim’s remains were laid to rest at about 8.40 p.m. on Sunday, according to Islamic rites.

The Secretary of Ebiraland Traditional Council, Alhaji Salihu Sule, told newsmen that the burial could not hold earlier due to unforeseen challenges as the corpse left Abuja late and only arrived in Okene around 6.45 p.m.

“On arrival, there was a family meeting that was held before the final internment according to Islamic rites,’’ Sule said.

Sheik Salihu Ebere, the Chief Imam of Ebiraland, who led the burial rites and prayers for the repose of the soul of the late Ohinoyi, prayed God to forgive the royal father his sins
