Some residents of Oyo town who thronged the palace to mourn the death of Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, on Saturday, were stung by bees.
This incident, according to The PUNCH, happened around 10am after Islamic clerics had arrived at the palace in preparation for the burial of Oba Adeyemi, who died on Friday night.
Residents in the open space at the palace who were affected by the attacking bees plucked tree branches and leaves to drive the unwanted creatures away
A policeman was one of the victims and some of the mourners assisted him to drive away the bees and removed some of the insects which got stuck to his uniform.
