“He will not be allowed to come in today. They have insisted that unless they finish carrying some rituals, the Kabiyesi will not be able to enter the town,” a source said.

“So we will have to wait until the finish and that will be tomorrow,” the source added.

Ogunwusi’s appointment was announced by Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola on October 26.
