The Students’ Union Government (SUG) of the University of Ibadan has enjoined every student of the institution planning to travel to avoid passing through Ile-Ife or better still postpone such journey till Thursday.

Public Relations Officer of UI SUG, Mr Adegoke Taiye, said in a statement: “If you are a student of this University who is currently in Ile-Ife, it is wisdom that you stay indoors before and after the said period. Your safety is our concern. As a result, we enjoin you to exercise your social responsibility by re-broadcasting this message for other Uites to access.”

He added: “This is an official statement from the palace of Awara of Iwara-Ife who is the head of Oro deity, that on Wednesday 12th August 2015, there would be official proclamation of the demise of Ooni of Ife. The proclamation will be made public during the Oro festival, being the final rites on the demise of Ooni of Ife.

“The residents of the ancient town are, therefore, urged to keep away from the streets between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm during which the Oro deity will be out.

“With the announcement, people are advised to stay in-door for the period when the Oro will be out.”
