3 months after the death of Oba Okunade Sijuwade who died on July 28, 2015 in a London hospital, Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi of the Giesi ruling house has been confirmed as the 51st Ooni of Ile-Ife.
His selection was announced by Osun State governor Rauf Aregbesola in a press statement.
The Governor revealed that the kingmakers of Ife had completed the required process and communicated the choice of Prince Ogunwusi to his office for approval.
