Attah Igala, Kogi monarch dies at 72
The paramount ruler of Igala Kingdom, the Attah Igala, Michael Idakwo Ameh-Oboni 11, died yesterday after a brief illness. He was aged 72 years.
The Guardian gathered that the monarch died on Thursday morning after a pile operation in a private hospital in Abuja.
He was the chairman, Kogi State traditional council. The monarch has been in the hospital undergoing treatment for more than a month, a source said.
HRH Ame-Oboni retired as an estate officer from the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA). He was appointed as the Attah Igala in 2013, putting to rest many months of waiting by the people after the demise of the former Attah Igala, Alhaji Aliyu Obaje, who died in July 2012.
