Ooni’s Palace Debunks Rumours of Link to Fire Incident at Oba Akiolu’s Palace



Oba Rilwan Akiolu and Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi

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.”

      So rude. How dare you speak your tribal gutter language on this website?? Do you not realise that there are people of varying ethnicities present here? You must think the world revolves around your glorified ethnic group.
      You Yoruba people are very mannerless and disrespectful.

      @A Real Nigerian, Excuse me guy or lady or whatever gender you may be. Have you check your temperature today? Have you taken your medicine today?

    A ‘Real’Nigerian without an ethnicity. Please and please, even the English you typed in isn”t yours. Allow Jay express himself. you can use google translate or better still ask Jay to translate. . Life isn”t this difficult.

    @arealnigerian, wow!!! You are a disgrace to your tribe be it igbo or hausa. Your statement clearly showed you are a messed up individual either brought up with a very hated mindset or came up with it own your own towards other tribe. You need to get checked out mentally because i see no reason why you came up with such response towards what the Jay wrote. YES i am a yoruba man no doubt and a very core one for that matter. I preserve, sustain and promote my tribe and culture.

    you should have simply asked for translation instead of attacking him based on his tribe.


    coincidentally that statement works for you too. This is just the beginning, more Yoruba proverbs and sayings will be posted here as a way of expression and there’s nothing you can do about it. Am sure its people like you who act like they sabi english pass go dey say things like “knee down in the ground”


    Grow Up and embrace your REAL Language.
