Why Ooni Of Ife Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Was Absent At His Grandmother’s Burial Today

The funeral service of Olori Agba started around 11:00am today at St Paul’s Anglican Church in Ayegbaju.
The Ooni of Ife was absent at the burial because according to Yoruba tradition, it is a taboo for a king to see a dead body.
