A appropriate memorial service was held for His Imperial Majesty, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, the late Alaafin of Oyo.

The event generated outcry on social media, with videos of the late monarch’s statue circulating.

At first glimpse, many people mistook it for the Alaafin, but upon closer investigation, they learned it was a statue created in his honour.

It is customary in Yorubaland, according to a netizen, to make a duplicate of a king and maintain it in the palace for three weeks or more until the regent is chosen and the statue is buried.

Some social media users expressed their concerns over the statue in the comments area.
