Dele Ige Dies At 82


Sir Oladele Ige, the younger brother of Chief Bola Ige, died Saturday afternoon in Ibadan.

He slumped when he stood to make a speech at his nephew’s birthday party. Though he was rushed to the hospital, he never recovered.

He was aged 82.

Sir Ige was a lawyer and a businessman.

Meanwhile, Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has described the death of the late Ige as devastating.

The governor, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media, Dr. Festus Adedayo, said, “It is with rude shock that I received the death of Chief Dele Ige, the brother to our revered uncle, the late Chief Bola Ige. He was a highly principled person who held tightly to his belief.“It is on records that although he didn’t share the same political ideology with his late brother, he, however, shared some of his ideals which bound them together as biological brothers and members of the same family. He will be sorely missed.”
