Ooni Of Ife Crowned In Secret


The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, was early this morning around 3-5am  crowned in a secret traditional ceremony, The Nation reports.

The monarch will enter the palace and be received by palace chiefs. He is to meet the press at 10 am at the palace.

According to a Palace source,  there is nothing like coronation in the Ife tradition.He added that there could only be an inauguration for the Ooni instead of coronation.

He said:

“Ooni gives crowns to traditional rulers and he is not expected to receive one like others. His crowning is usually done in secrecy or confidence, not in the open.

“And traditionally, whoever is pronounced by the kingmakers and the government becomes the Ooni. He does not need to wait till he undergoes rites and crowned before he is referred to as Ooni.”

Kabiyesi oooooo!
