    Adeyinka Adebayo

    The former governor of the old Western State of Nigeria, Robert Adeyinka Adebayo, is dead.

    He died at the age of 89 in his sleep, a family source said on Wednesday.

    The late Adebayo became governor after Col. Francis Adekunle Fajuyi’s death in the 1966 coup d’état, ruling from 4 Aug 1966 to April 1971.

    Adebayo was born in 1928, the son of a Public Works employee from Iyin Ekiti, near Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria.

    He was the father of the former Governor of Ekiti State, Otunba Niyi Adebayo.
