The Ooni of Ife’s camp has reacted to the fire incident at the palace of the Oba of on Tuesday. An official has described the incident as a sad one and revealed the palace is not happy with the incident.
The spokesperson of the Ooni’s palace, Moses Olafare, told PREMIUM TIMES that 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.
Recall we earlier reported about 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 entitled 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.
