The Ooni’s Palace has expressed sadness over the fire incident at the Oba of Lagos Rilwan Akiolu‘s palace.
After the incident, several commenters said that the fire was caused by Oba Akiolu’s embarrassment of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi last Tuesday.
“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,” Director of Media and Public Relations, Ooni’s Palace, Moses Olafare told Premium Times.
On the rumours, Olafare said: “People are entitled to their own views. 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.”
