The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has denied statements made by a Tunde Awoyemi, who claimed to be the Director of Tourism at the Ooni’s Palace over his 'snubbing' by Oba Rilwan Akiolu of Lagos state.

Awoyemi had threatened to call on the the ancestors if Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu does not tender an apology to the Ooni for the 'snubbing.'

However, the Ooni, in a statement via the Director of Media and Public Relations, Ooni’s Palace Moses Olafare said:

"The Palace of Ooni is using this medium to dissociate Ooni of Ife from the statement credited to Mr Tunde Awoyemi and we have said it repeatedly that we have no official reaction to the issue of Oba Akiolu.

"Kabiyesi Ogunwusi is committed to his peace and unity agenda, which he has embarked on since he ascended the throne of his forefathers. We refrain from reacting officially, with a view to avoiding fanning any ember of discord as Oba Akiolu remains respected monarch and the Ooni had established a very robust and healthy relationship with him before his installation as Ooni of Ife.

"While Ooni would continue to sustain the relationship with Oba Akiolu, we want to state categorically that the remark credited to Tunde Awoyemi was not authorised by Ooni and should be disregarded by all Nigerians both at home and in diaspora.
