The Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Samuel Odulana Odugade 1, is dead.

The monarch, who died at age 101 passed away Tuesday evening after he reportedly lost consciousness.

Oba Odulana mounted the throne in 2007 as the 39th Olubadan of Ibadan land. He was the 17th Olubadan since the title was elevated from Baale Ibadan to the Olubadan in 1930. The first traditional ruler to bear the new title was Oba Okunola Abass who reigned from 1930-1946.

Next in line to the throne is the Balogun of Ibadan land, High Chief Saliu A.O. Adetunji.
