History was made on Sunday as the new Ooni of Ife‎, Oba Ogunwusi became the first Ooni to visit Oyo town since 1937.

It is reported that the late Ooni Sijuwade and Oba Adeyemi were embroiled in a battle for supremacy.

The new Ooni surprisingly visited the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba lamidi Adeyemi lll on the 45th year anniversary of His coronation as a mark of honour and a lover of peace.


Decked in the normal Ooni trademark attire, Oba Ogunwusi shook hands with the Alaafin and they sat on the same chair, both beaming with smiles.
