The abode of the late Aare Musulumi of Nigeria, Abdulazeez Arisekola Alao has fallen into disrepair.
It is true that he is a man of many properties. But the property under discussion, is that he once called home, situated in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Those in the know, disclosed to Happenings that the once palatial structure which played host to Presidents, Religious leaders and Captains of industries is fast becoming a shadow of its former allure.
“It now has a jaded look…the walls, coatings tell stories of lack of care” a source disclosed.
“The atmosphere at the place now screams desolate” another source claims. “It is obvious it is a struggle to keep things together at the place” yet another source offered.
Investigations by Happenings revealed that visitors to the place are now far and between – and calls by known names virtually extinct.
A man of more than two wives, sources disclosed that those he left behind are more focused on making something out of their lives than maintaining the “sparkle” of his famous residence.
Arisekola, in 2014 at 69, died in his house in London after a brief illness. The late Ibadan-based billionaire who doubled as the Deputy President General of Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA, was until his death a prominent businessman and Islamic leader.
