The Attah of Igala and Chairman, Kogi State traditional council, Dr Micheal Ameh Oboni has joined his ancestors.
The Paramount ruler of the Igalla nation died in Abuja yesterday night after being admitted to a hospital in Abuja.
The Igalas are historically close to the Igbos. Oral tradition has it that the first Attah of Igala, known as Onoja, is descended from Eri Ben Gad, the Igbo father-figure, through his daughter Oboli.
Several Igbo communities are also said to be descended from Igalas.
May His soul rest in peace.
