In the spirit of the Ramadan, the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III has donated assorted grains and cash to Muslim faithfuls of the ancient town.
The gesture was not limited to Muslims alone, as Christians and adherents of other religions also benefited.
Both rice and garri in large quantities were separately wrapped in polythene bags and given to several individuals in the palace.
Also, cash ranging from N1000 to N5000 were packaged with the foodstuff given out to the people.
The royal donation which began last week Saturday lasted till yesterday evening, as thousands of happy- looking residents from three out of the four local governments, that make up Oyo Federal Constituency (Atiba, Oyo East and Oyo West) besieged the palace to partake of the largess.
