“They descended on the people erecting the tents and flogged them heavily. They destroyed the tents and swore never to allow anybody do any interdenominational service at the palace.”

The chief revealed that the state government had to wade into the crisis before the service was allowed.

He said, “It took the intervention of officials of the state government, who appealed to the ‘Isoro’ to allow the people to hold the interdenominational service before the issue was resolved. If not for the intervention of the state government, the interdenominational service would not have been allowed.”

  1. Burial of the monarch should have been left to members of his fraternity why invite the public when you can’t be tolerant

  2. The dead should be alowed to bury the dead, as i am concern the fraternity members are all dead spiritualiy , phisicaly and other wise.

  3. @Joe, u’r 10/10. D dead shd bury their dead. Christians hav refused 2 heed those words of Jesus. Light & darknes has now reachd a compromise. Why, if not 4 “longthroat”, would a Christian rite of passage be observd 4a man who was deeply enmeshed in traditional cultism in his life time? Is d church trying 2c if God would change His mind concerning d fate of d lost soul? I feel no mor dan scorn 4 any pastor or minister dat officiates in dis heathen occasion. Dis is d height of hypocricy!

    Dat funeral shd be left 2 dat ungodly brotherhood of darknes. Let dem obsverv all d fetish rituals they knw, & invoke all d wide-eyed demons in Yorubaland or any oda place 4 dat mata! In d end, provided a man died wdout Christ, d devil claims his doomd soul. No amount of speaking in tongues wil eva change dis fate.

  4. Interdenominational service.For who. Did he identify with Christianity or Islam ? So why the Interdenominational service when the Isoros where he belonged are the owner of their corps so what concerns the others.
