Adams made the remark while reacting to the announcement of demise of the monarch.

According to him, the Olubuse II has completed his mission as assigned to him by Almighty God.

"He has gloriously relocated to the ancestral abode of his progenitors, to feed them back after the completion of his assigned role as the protector of the ancestral stool of the Yoruba. Ooni Olubuse has gone to eternally dine and wine with his ancestors and to give the feedback to those who sent him to tender their stead. The biggest Elephant has transited to the vault."
