The Ooni of Ife’s palace has finally reacted to the trending saga involving Oba of Lagos snubbing the Ooni Of Ife..

Premium Times recently reached out to the Head of Palace Directorate of Tourism, Awoyemi Tunde, who addressed the issue warning the Oba of Lagos to apologise of risk the wrath of Alale.

He said;

“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 very condemnable”.

He also said that the Akiolu risked the wrath of the ‘Alale’ (Ancestors), as a result of his disrespect for the superior monarch, saying;

“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 of Ile-Ife, we will call on the ancestors on the issue,”
