ERUKU-KWARA STATE – An Abuja-based legal practitioner, Barrister Kolawole Omotinugbon and his wife were on Saturday, April 3, 2021 bestowed with the highest honour in Erukuland – B’amofin & Yeye B’amofin of Erukuland by His Royal Majesty, Oba Busari Ayinde Amuludunloye 1, the Owa of Erukuland in Kwara State.
Barr. Omotinugbon, an exceptional man who wears many hats , has established himself in business; and as a foremost Abuja-based Legal Practitioner, he was once Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association, FCT Chapter.
It was pomp and pagenrary when Oba Busari Ayinde Amuludunloye 1, proclaimed Barr. Kokawole Omotinugbon as the new B’amofin and his wife Yeye B’amofin of Erukuland, respectively.
According to the Owa of Erukuland, the title thus made the recipient an ancestor, which is the highest honour a mortal can aspire to, without becoming a deity in Erukuland.
Barr. Omotinugbon’s commitment to Erukuland and the propagation of its values and ethos, and his unflinching loyalty to Yoruba ancestry, according to Chiefs from neighbouring towns, and dignitaries from every part of the State that attended the installation, no doubt earned him the title.
They noted that Barr. Omotinugbon remains a humanitarian, philanthropist and peace ambassador. They however prayed that Barr. Kolawole Omotinugbon and his wife shall reign for a long time, as the B’amofin and Yeye B’amofin of Erukuland, respectively.
The event was graced by clubs and associations in Erukuland, family, friends, associates of the recipients and well-wishers from within and outside the town.
