Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi

The Washington DC Fire Brigade went to the scene following reports of fire and smoke at the Smithsonian Museum of African Art.

Tensions were doused when the fire men were given adequate explanation concerning the reason for the fire.

The monarch’s traveling passport was however seized according to reports.

The traditional display was in honour of Oba Ogunwusi, who is on a tour of the United States, Olisa.tv reports.

Since becoming the Ooni of Ife, Oba Ogunwusi, has taken active steps to make Osun State, particularly Ife, a tourist centre.

According to him, wealthy Nigerians should join hands with the country by having their vacation at any of the tourist locations in the state.

Oba Ogunwusi isn’t all about words. The monarch spent his honeymoon with his wife, Oloori Wuraola, at a tourist site in Lagos.
