The respected monarch debunked the rumours about his death in a telephone conversation with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
The Awujale has for the past week been a guest of Oriental Hotel in Victoria Island, in Lagos, where he has been staying after a routine medical checkup in a Lagos hospital, two weeks ago.
Awujale expressed surprise that some bloggers could be spreading rumours about his death without confirming from the palace in Ijebu-Ode or from his chiefs.
“Why are people spreading rumours about my death, when I am right here at Oriental”, asked the baffled King.
He enjoined journalists to check veracity of their information, before rushing to publish.
