Adetiloye, Former Anglican Primate Dies At 83

From Nigeria-

Retired Archbishop and Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Joseph Abiodun Adetiloye, 83, is dead. He died yesterday afternoon in his country home in Odo-Owa, in Ijero Local Government Area of Ekiti State.

He was survived by his wife, Titilayo and two children, Adeola and Adedoyin. Adeola confirmed the death of his father to newsmen yesterday evening via telephone.

The last public function the late cleric attended was during the recent commissioning of the Odo Owa-Oke Ila Road by the Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, as part of his administration's second year anniversary.

During the ceremony, late Adetiloye prayed for Fayemi for the honour done to him by making the road passable in his lifetime.

His younger brother, Sunday while giving an account of his last minutes, said late Adetiloye had at about 6pm on Thursday suddenly developed high temperature, and a physician was contacted to attend to him.
