He was, however, represented at the burial of the Ogbomoso monarch by his Deputy, Engineer Rauf Olaniyan who led the state delegation.

He ascended the throne on October 24, 1973. He was born on May 27, 1926, in Ogbomoso to Oba Bello Afolabi Oyewumi Ajagungbade II and Ayaba Seliat Olatundun Oyewumi.
