The first class monarch died last Sunday, 21st February, after a brief illness.

Prof. Abdulkareem said that the late monarch, who was the Chairman of the Igbomina Traditional Council, was a passionate lover of his community and Igbominaland as well as a committed bridge builder across the length and breadth of Kwara State.
The Vice-Chancellor said that the 12-year reign of Oba Woleola witnessed tremendous community development and peaceful coexistence among indigenes of the town and Igbiminaland in general.
He, therefore, condoled with members of the Igbomina Traditional Council and the Kwara State Council of Traditional Rulers on the death of one of their prominent members.
While praying for peaceful repose of the soul of the late monarch, Prof. Abdulkareem beseeched Allah to forgive him and make Aljannah Firdaos his final abode.
