Amid the selection process of the new Ooni of Ife, another great loss hits the palace as the deputy of the deceased Ooni passed on yesterday. He passed on at the age of 85 due to being bed ridden by sickness as reported by the Palace inhabitants.
The Obalufe, Oba Solomon Folorunso Omisakin was on his sick bed when the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, passed on. But he recovered for a short while.
Those at the palace were reluctant to having any say pertaining the death of the Obalufe but confirmed that his death would not stop the selection of the Ooni.
May his soul rest in peace
