Feb 10, 2016 – Ooni Of Ife Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi’ Father’s Mother, Grandmother Dead; Armed Robbers Kill Palace Guard 

Prince Oluropo Ogunwusi Loses Mother, Madam Mariani Adeyemi Ogunwusi Dies At Age 104

Olori Mariani Adeyemi Ogunwusi, the grandmother of the current Ooni of Ife has died.

She passed away yesterday at her house in Ile Ife around 4:30am

The deceased reportedly had the premonition of his death.

Hear what Ooni’s spokesman Moses Olafare said:

In the last one month, Mama has been placing Ooni Ogunwusi’s picture on her chest either while sleeping or sitting always praying: “Olorun o ma seun o ti o je ki ala ogoji odun wa si imuse l’oju emi mi. Moti ti wa se tan latin pada s’odo re bayii o, ki n’ le so fun oko mi pe asotele odun 1974 ti sele o,”

Meaning:

“God, I thank you for keeping me alive to witness a dream of over 40 years. I am now ready to return to you in heaven for eternity and will be able to tell my husband of this manifestation of our 1974 dream.”

The Centenarian is survived by her only son, Oluropo Ogunwusi and 12 grandchildren.

Meanwhile a palace guard identified as Marcus Olatunji was shot dead by some suspected robbers in front of his house yesterday.

    My heartfelt condolence goes to the entire Ogunwusi’s family. May the soul of Mama, Madam Mariani Adeyemi Ogunwusi rest in perfect peace. She lived a fulfilled life!
    As to the assassinated palace guard of His Royal Majesty,Ooni Adeyeye A. Ogunwusi, Does God exist? Of course, God exists and there are so many absolute proofs out there. The killer/s of Ooni’s guard might not know or belief it before they committed such abomination that is punishable by the Creator and the gods of Yoruba land. Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. Ooni Ogunwusi has so far proven that, for in the democracies established by Yoruba forefathers which are subjects to the law of the land,the best citizens hold the first place and there are no demagogues.To proof this, he purchased smart phones for his subjects and educated them on how to properly use them only for hardened criminals to have short-lived the guard that protected the king at the expense of his loved ones. As the custodian of Oodua stool, it is inhuman for any one to go after the life of a well meaning and deserving Royal Father of a unique people (the Yorubas). He who killed the guard must have planned to kill the king. To my dearest Ooni, i say, accept my sincere condolence on the loss of an innocent soul that served your kingdom diligently. May the almighty Creator grant him peace in heaven. May his murderers never see peace. May the god of thunder (Sango, god of truth)destroy them. May the gods of Ile-Ife and entire Yoruba kingdoms avenge his death. May they never have opportunity to commit such gruesome atrocity any more. Long live the king, long life and long reign.
