Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi on Sunday, October 9th moved to Iledi a place of seclusion where he will be for the next 7 days as a result of the Olojo festival
The festival is a major annual event in Ile Ife, meant to celebrate the creation of universe and the week long event will climax with wearing of “Are” crown, a special crown worn once annually by Ooni and the symbolic walk from Ile Oodua, Ooni’s palace, to Oke Mogun.
The Ooni will not be in contact with any person during this time but with the spirits.
According to Thisday, road leading to Ooni’s palace from Moore was closed to traffic as Oba Ogunwusi moved into Iledi, his first port of call when he started the rites for installation as Ooni last year November.
Spokesperson to Ooni, Moses Olafare said the Ooni will, during the seclusion, pray for the country and her leadership at all levels.
