August 17, 2015 – Ogboni Ibile, Iledi Ooni Cultists Begin Rituals To Appease Ife gods Over Sijuwade’s Death Announcement

Members of the Iledi, a group of traditionalists, have begun rituals to appease the gods over the way the death of Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, the Olubuse II, was announced.

Sources within the Ogboni Ibile (Iledi Ooni) said that the announcement on social and traditional media broke traditional protocol.

They noted that the development could attract the wrath of the gods, hence the need to appease them to prevent calamities.

Sources revealed that the remains of Oba Sijuwade were committed to mother earth on Friday night, hours after an inter-religious service for the late monarch.

Christians, Muslims and the traditionalists participated in the inter-religious service held at Enuwa Square, opposite the palace otherwise known as Ile Oodua.

According to the palace sources, the body was buried after several traditional rites had been concluded.

The sources also revealed that people expecting a public burial for Oba Sijuwade were disappointed because “Ooni is not an ordinary individual, whose burial is done without rituals and ceremonies.

The members of the Iledi added that the burial rites on Oba Sijuwade’s body was done in 201 shrines before it was buried.

It was learnt that Oba Sijuwade’s successor would also pass through the 201 rites before being crowned the next Ooni.

Iledi Ooni is the group of traditional Ogboni, that works with the Ooni, offering wise counsels from the traditional point of view.

The group used to serve as the Supreme Court in the old days before modernity brought democracy and its institutions.

Members of the Sijuwade’s family have moved out of the palace with their property, leaving the palace free.

The news of the monarch death was wrongly worded, but let our leaders could learn from it, the monarch could have build a standard hospital or influenced the project using his connection home and abroad, it is unfortunate that the respected monarch had to travel 6000km to get medical attention, which the Queen of England with never do.
