Iyalode of Ibadan, Alhaja Aminat Abiodun, is dead.

Sources at her family compound in Idi- Arere area of Ibadan and her Bodija residence, said she died in the early hours of this morning, today the 8th of December, 2018.

As Iyalode, she is the representative of women in the Olubadan-in-council which has 11 members ( the Olubadan as the head and 10 other high chiefs, including Iyalode). During her lifetime, she’s referred to as the Obabinrin (female king) of Ibadanland. She combines wealth with power. The tall, beautiful and elegant woman is a ‘talk of the town woman’ everywhere she goes.

She became the Iyalode of Ibadan following the demise of the former occupant, Chief Mrs Wuraola Akintola. Aminat Abiodun was announced in August, 2007 and installed on the 19th day October, 2007, as the Iyalode of Ibadanland, the 13th in the history of the ancient town, rising through the ladder as Jagun Iyalode of Ibadanland, from 1971 to her present position‎, almost 36 years after she began her journey. May her soul rest in peace.
