War Drums Are Sounding Everywhere, Ooni Tells Buhari

Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi

Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, stormed the Presidential Villa on Thursday, where he intimated President Muhammadu Buhari that issue of insecurity bedeviling the country was vibrating war drums.

The revered monarch, however, said people of the South-West extraction were not ready for war as the experience will not be palatable for anyone.

His visit to the presidency was connected to the killing of the daughter of the Afenifere leader, Pa Rueben Fasoranti, by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Ondo State recently, which prompted diverse reactions from Nigerians, including ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, among others.

Although the meeting held behind closed doors, the Ooni bared his mind to State House correspondents shortly after he met the president.

The royal father disclosed that his visit was on the instance of all traditional rulers in the South West, noting that they were equally equipped with ideas on how to improve the security situation in the country.
