Conspiring Against Monarchs Is A Taboo – Ooni Of Ife

It has been reported that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has warned Yoruba communities who are planning attacks against the traditional institutions.

According to reports, the Ooni, represented by the Agbolu of Ife, Oba Adekunle Adebowale, disclosed this at Imesi Ekiti in Ekiti State on Saturday during the coronation of the Onimesi, Oba Olatunji Olatunde.

Ooni stated that “The traditional institution is sacred and should not suffer any form of attack or conspiracy from any quarters, either from within or outside.”

He added that, “I want to enjoin the people of Imesi to rally round their monarch and give him the necessary support. It is a taboo in Yorubaland for anyone to conspire against an Oba.”

Ooni also disclosed that “I am pleased with what I have seen here today in terms of the display of Yoruba’s cultural and traditional values. All that you have showcased here today are a replica of what we do in Ile Ife, which is the cradle of the Yoruba. This shows that Onimesi is a true descendant of Oduduwa.”
