The newly-appointed Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, is set to officially arrive in the ancient town tomorrow, October 27, 2015.

40-year-old Ogunwusi, who currently resides in Lagos, will be received by Kingmakers and members of the Isoro cult who will carry out the coronation rites.

“The Kabiyesi will officially arrive Ife tomorrow (Tuesday) and the kingmakers and members of the Isoro will take it up from there,” Adelowo Ogunleye, Secretary of the Giesi Ruling House, told Premium Times.

“Once he arrives the kingmakers and members of Isoro will begin the process of crowing him. We do not know how long it will take before that process will be concluded, but that will be left for both the kingmakers and the Kabiyesi,” he added.
