Ooni of Ife Okunnade Sijuwade has been reported dead in a London hospital. Wikipedia broke the news online on July 28, the day he died.

In Nigeria, a formal report of the first-class chief’s death may take weeks or months due to several traditional rites.

Ooni Sijuwade was 85. He mounted the throne of his ancestors in December 1980.
