Ooni of Ife

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has gone into a seven days seclusion at Ile Mole, Iremo Quarters, Ile-Ife, as the ancient Olojo Festival kicks off.

For the seven days, the Ooni of Ife will be incommunicado and will not grant audience to anyone.

NAN reports that Ogunwusi left the palace in a white attire laced with colourful ancient beads.

The monarch disclosed that he will use the period to contact God for a total eradication of coronavirus and Nigeria’s peace.

“I am going into seclusion; I am going into fasting and prayer in the ways of our ancestors. We are gradually winning the war against coronavirus and we must indeed be thankful because we are not superior to those countries being crippled by this pandemic.
