Ooni Of Ife Reacts To Fire At Palace Of Oba Of Lagos - Read Nigerians reaction
The fire at the palace of the Oba of Lagos on Tuesday has nothing to do with the Lagos’ monarch’s relationship with the Ooni of Ife, an official has said.
The spokesperson of the Ooni’s palace, Moses Olafare, said the Ife monarch, Enitan Ogunwusi, is unhappy with the fire incident.
“We are not happy over the fact that the palace of Lagos king got burnt, we can only sympathise with the palace on the development,” he said.
We reported the fire incident at the Lagos monarch’s palace. The fire occurred about one week after a video showed the Lagos monarch, Rilwan Akiolu, snub the Ooni.
There have been rumours on social media that Tuesday’s fire was caused by the snub, reports denied by Mr. Olafare.
“People are entitle to their own views,” he said. “But what people say doesn’t mean that is the position of the palace.”
“What happened is mere coincidence and should not be traced to the incident in Lagos, we send our sympathies,” he added.

*As if the Ooni would agree that Sango is fighting for him.
*Karma playing home match
*The tout can temporarily relocate to any nearby moto park. Yeye agbero king
*It is legendary!
*Something similar happened between Ogun and Orunmila, baba agboniregun, nigba iwase.
The fire incidence is the intervening function of the legendary "Esu".
Esu ma se mi, omo elomi ni ki o se
*Whoever messes with Oni, messes with the entire yoruba race. But i think the Alale is fighting a proxy fight.
