Ooni: Ife Declares Oro Festival

Amidst uncertainty surrounding the present state of the Ooni of Ife, Okunade Sijuade, Oro, a traditional festival of the ancient city has been declared.

The festival, which will last for seven days, is observed, with females kept out of sight after 7pm.

It was gathered that violators of the rule could face dire consequences.

While the reasons for the declaration of the festival is yet to be established, a source said this might not be unrelated to the situation surrounding the Ooni of Ife.

The festival is often used to appease the gods through observance of certain rituals for peace and safety for the people.
