A new Ooni of Ife has emerged to succeed the legendary Oba Okunade Sijuwade, who died on July 28, 2015 in a London hospital.
The new Ooni is Prince Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi of the Giesi ruling house.
He was declared the 51st Ooni of Ile-Ife via a statement entitled “Appointment of a New Ooni”. The terse statement by the Governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, said that the kingmakers of Ife had completed the required process and communicated the choice of Prince Ogunwusi to his office for approval.
