Iyalode Of Ibadanland, Aminat Abiodun Is Dead

The Iyalode of Ibadan land, Oyo State, Alhaja Aminat Abiodun is dead.

According to family sources at her family compound in Idi- Arere area of Ibadan and her Bodija residence, she died in the early hours of yesterday at the age of 93, barely two weeks to her 94th birthday.

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 wielded influence, wealth, and power in her lifetime.

The Iyalode, who was tall, beautiful and elegant was the ‘talk of the town women’ everywhere she went in Ibadanland. She became the Iyalode of Ibadan following the demise of the former occupant, Chief Mrs Wuraola Akintola.

A strong and successful businesswoman, Abiodun has not only been prominent, she was still very active despite her age until her demise.

Just like some of her predecessors, especially the likes of Efunsetan Aniwura and Humuani Alaga, Alhaja Abiodun always took sides with the masses on issues affecting them during her lifetime. Sources further hinted that she would be buried today in accordance with the Islamic rites.
