Akure North Council Mourns Simultaneous Deaths of Chairman and Vice Chairman
Chairman and Vice Chairman Pass Away within One Week

The Akure North council area of Ondo State is now shrouded in palpable apprehension as the shocking deaths of both their chairman and vice chairman within a span of just one week have left the workers and residents in a state of disbelief and mourning.

The council boss, Ogbesetore Bankole, passed away last week after a brief battle with an undisclosed illness. His untimely demise left a leadership vacuum that was temporarily filled by the vice chairman, Anthony Adebusola.

However, the unfortunate turn of events took an even more distressing twist as Anthony Adebusola, who had assumed the role of Acting Chairman, tragically passed away last Saturday. The sudden death of the vice chairman has sent shockwaves not only through the council area but also far beyond, leaving the community grappling with sorrow and uncertainty.

In a conversation with Vanguard, Saka Ogunleye, the former commissioner for Sports and Youth Development, confirmed the devastating news of the vice chairman’s demise. Ogunleye expressed deep sorrow as he shared, “It is on a sad note, painful, and pathetic that I’m here again to announce the tragic death of our council vice chairman, Hon Anthony Adebusola.”

“This unfortunate death occurred yesterday after a brief illness. It is painful that we lost both our elected council chairman and his amiable loyal vice chairman within one week,” Ogunleye lamented, clearly disturbed by the consecutive losses. “Like a bad movie, so sad a story. Ko ye mi oo,” he added, urging everyone to pray for the council and the grieving family members left behind by the departed officials.

The community’s grief was further compounded by the recent visit of Acting Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa to the late Chairman’s residence over the weekend. Aiyedatiwa, filled with condolences and sympathy, paid his respects to the bereaved family, offering solace in the wake of these tragic events.

As the people of Akure North grapple with their profound loss, the council area and the wider Ondo State community are left in a state of shock and mourning. The void created by the sudden demise of their elected leaders raises concerns about the continuity of governance and the future direction of the council. In this challenging time, the people of Akure North and beyond are urged to come together, offering their support, prayers, and condolences to the grieving families and the entire community affected by this heartbreaking loss.
