•Late HRH Samson Ekele Adejoh
His Royal Highness, Samson Ekele Adejoh, the “traditional husband” of Attah Igala, who doubles as his custodian, is dead.
Adejoh is one of the most influential persons in the circle of the King of Igala land. Igala is one of the dominant ethnic groups in Kogi State.
Otherwise called “Achadu Oko Attah”, Daily Trust gathered that Adejoh slumped in Ibaji while attending the 70th birthday of Chief John Egwemi, the traditional ruler of Ibaji.
A source told Daily Trust that efforts to save the late traditional ruler ended in futility.
He was rushed to nearby General Hospital, Idah, where doctors pronounced him dead.
His death is no doubt a setback to the emergence of a new Attah Igala as he is one of the persons who is expected to play a key role in the process of selecting the successor of King Micheal Amah Oboni, who died in August 2020.
Until his death in an Abuja hospital on August 27, 2020, Oboni was the Chairman of Kogi State’s Council of Chiefs.
His successor had not emerged at the time Adejoh joined his ancestors on Saturday.
