The Ooni of Ife’s palace has finally reacted to the ongoing snub saga involving The Oba of Lagos and the Ooni of Ife…
The Head of Palace Directorate of Tourism, Awoyemi Tunde has recently spoken to Premium Times and he addressed the issue warning the Oba of Lagos to apologise, in order not to incur the wrath of the Alale.
“It is not a slap on the Ooni of Ife but rather a slap on the Oba of Lagos . The stool of the Oba of Lagos was founded by Olofin Ogunfunminire and the Ooni of Ife is the Oba of Yoruba land.”
“The Oba of Lagos has to come to terms with the fact that Ooni is the royal father of Yoruba land, it is necessary that all persons come together to unite Yoruba land but really the issue at the event is condemnable”.
He also made it clear to Oba Akiolu risked the wrath of the ‘Alale’(Ancestors), as regards his disregard for the superior monarch, as stipulated here:
“God gave Ooni of Ife; Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, the mandate to unite the Yoruba land and nothing will stop him from doing that.”
“If we don’t receive an apology especially with the image od Ile-Ife, we will call on the ancestors on the issue”
