Fire razes Ooni of Ife's palace

Mixed reactions have trailed the unpleasant news that befell the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi on Friday.

Kemi Filani reports that a building apartment in the palace of the Ife monarch has been razed down by fire.

According to reports online, the courtyard of the palace was gutted by fire at about 11:30 pm on Friday, April 28, shortly after the electrical appliances in the affected apartment exploded.

The Palace Spokesperson, Moses Olafare, in a public statement, said the inferno was triggered by a power surge and has been brought under control.

Olafare stated that no causality and cultural items were lost during the incident, adding that the inferno did not spread beyond the Courtyard located at a section of the palace premises.

While many expressed concern over his wives and members of the palace, one netizen tried apportioning the blame on Tinubu.

According to her, the incident is coming hours after the Ooni called out Tinubu.
