After denials by the Oba’s palace on the reported death of the Ooni of Ife days back, officials of the palace has finally come out to admit thetruth that Oba Okunade Sijuwade is dead – some of us already knew this all along. officials of the palace appealed to residents to heed the restriction order from the palace.
“The proclamation of the demise of Ooni will be made public during the Oro festival, being the final rites on the demise of Ooni of Ife.


“The residents of the ancient town are therefore urged to keep away from the streets between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4p.m. during which the Oro deity will be out.

“With the announcement, people are advised to stay indoors for the period when the Oro will be out,” Adereti said.
This development has thrown up questions about the activities that will take place during the rites period.

It is common knowledge in the Yoruba tradition that a monarch ‘cannot embark on the journey to the great beyond’ unaccompanied. So, who accompanies him? Not goats or cows. The Daily Times had reported on Monday the ‘fears of the residents that an important ingredient for the burial rites was missing, a phrase they interpreted to mean the Aboba ku, one who dies with a monarch. During the lifetime of the monarch, a person is named for the role and is said to enjoy immense benefits with the monarch.

‘At the demise of the traditional ruler, the Abo ba ku meekly surrenders to death.’
The palpable fear is that lives will have to be sacrificed with the Oba’s death. When asking of my take of the veracity that the Oba had died, someone stated that the reason for delaying the announcement of the Ooni’s death was not to jolt people into taking cover since ‘heads were needed to bury the monarch.’
Whilst in the past only females were barred from movements during the Oro acts, and timing was restricted to the dark periods of the nights, men are equally barred and the timing will span 9 am – 4 pm, a period when businesses, students, market women, travelers and the likes are expected to be active.
