The final burial rites for the late Ooni of Ife, Oba Sijuwade has reportedly been put on hold as the ‘abobaku’ has fled for his life.

Abobaku in yoruba land is the term used to describe “The one who dies with the king”.

Such person is usually  appointed upon a king’s coronation, to be buried with the king when he eventually dies.

His job is to serve the king and attend to him in the afterlife.

Given the severity of this position, the Abobaku leads an affluent life, taking care of the king and enjoying numerous benefits in the town.

The Oba’s death in London had allowed word of his demise to filter around, and this reportedly gave the Abobaku ample time to flee.
