during his arrival.
After a long battle next to the death of Oba
Sijuwade, Ogunsuwi, a prince from the Giesi Ruling House in the town became the new Ooni of Ife.

On his arrival with armed security staff, the
Ooni stopped at the Ife toll gate to appreciate
the chiefs led by the Lowa of Ife.
The streets were full with the huge crowd with
schoolchildren, market women, motorcycle
riders and other residents of the town.
That’s why Ooni-elect took time to admit cheers
from the waiting mob by raising his right hand
several times to greet his supporters.
Ogunsuwi went to the home of the Obalufe to
pay respect before proceeding to his compound
of the Giesi Ruling House where he is to be
installed as Sooko.

Adelowo Ogunleye, secretary of the Giesi
Ruling House, said the Ooni-elect will receive
the title of Ojaja II, during his reign.
Ogunleye clarified that the Ojaja family is a part
of the Giesi ruling house.

He said: “ The Kabiyesi has promised to further the
development of Ife and provide jobs for the
unemployed. “When he is finally installed, I am sure he will state the rest himself .” Check out more photos below:
