Former governor of Oyo State, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala, has been reported dead in Ogbomoso.

He was 71.

Unconfirmed source said the former governor died on Wednesday morning in his sleep.

Another source said the convoy of the former governor had already been rolled out for a trip to Ibadan before the incident.

The source said concern was raised when the former governor, who was expected to join the convoy, didn’t come out, forcing some of the aides to rush into the house where he was confirmed dead.

Akala, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, was a former governor of the state, between 2007 and 2011.

He was also a deputy governor under former governor, Rashidi Ladoja between 2003 and 2006, when Chief Ladoja was impeached and consequently became the acting governor for eleven months.

Alao-Akala died exactly one month after the demise of the Soun of Ogbomosho.
