The spokesperson of the Ooni’s palace, Moses Olafare, told PREMIUM TIMES that the Ife monarch, Enitan Ogunwusi, is unhappy with the fire incident.
“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,” he 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,’ he added.
The Ooni also congratulated the government and the people of Rivers State, for the peaceful relationship with the Yoruba community in the state.
He said: “It is to the glory of God that we landed in Port Harcourt to celebrate with the people the 50th anniversary of the state and to celebrate one Nigeria and one country. Our major objective is to continue to foster peace.
“I am going to meet with the amiable governor; the number one citizen of the state and the good people of Port Harcourt for us to know that we are all one. I also thank God Almighty for making the state very active and still waxing strong.
