Farooq Oreagba, Who Beat Cancer, Wins Hearts At Ojude Oba Day by FreeStuffsNG: 8:56pm On Jun 19
Meet Farooq Oreagba, a cancer survivor who stole the show with his charisma at the 2024 Ojude Oba Day celebration.

The stylish and charismatic Oreagba, a former Member of the Derivatives Product Advisory Committee of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, made a grand entrance on horseback, showcasing his unique fashion sense.


His viral photos and videos at the Ojude Oba festival captured the attention of netizens across Nigeria with some praising his sense of style and “steeze”.

One of the highlights of the festival was pictures and videos of Oreagba at the 2024 Ojude Oba Day, wearing a beautiful tattoo on his arm while rocking a full aso-oke agbada regalia.

Born in July 1966 in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, Oreagba started his educational journey in his hometown at Ijebu-Ode Grammar School before attending King’s College Lagos.

According to his profile on LinkedIn, he also acquired a degree at Edward Greenes College, Oxford in London.

He graduated from Oxford with distinction before returning to acquire a Bachelor of Engineering (BEng), Combined Engineering Studies from Coventry University (1985-1989).

He also stated that he acquired a BTec Diploma, in Business & Finance (1991 – 1993) from the University of East London.

Oreagba has also picked up numerous certifications from different educational institutions at home and abroad.

Over the last four decades, Oreagba has worked in the financial sector in Nigeria and abroad.

Oreagba is a former Member of the Derivatives Product Advisory Committee of the Nigerian Stock Exchange.

He, however, stepped away from his role amid his fight with bone and skin cancer.

In April 2014, Oreagba was diagnosed with osteosarcoma and carcinoma, which, in simpler terms, can be translated to mean bone marrow and skin cancer, respectively.

He had a complete remission on February 3, 2015, and was declared cancer-free and healthy in 2017.


Oreagba is currently the managing director of NG Clearing Limited.

He was appointed MD/CEO of NG Clearing Limited in September 2023.

This appointment came nearly six years after Oreagba had to step away from the financial sector due to health issues.

Ojude Oba is like December celebration where people who have been outside Ijebu and also abroad come back home and celebrate with their loved ones. .

The Ijebu's in abroad would prefer to attend Ojude Oba than coming around December time

Meanwhile, the celebration is irrespective of religion background

Those refugees from that Sit at home region have been really humbled by this year's Ojude Oba.

The funny part is that many Yoruba Obidients who supported Peter Obi, together with Yorubas who supported Tinubu and Atiku are all wearing colorful Yoruba attire. So, they are feeling left out and shut out.
