The students of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) have made a mockery of the ‘Oro’ burial rites of the deceased Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade.
The students took their time to dress in costumes that look like those in an occultic procession in a mockery of the dead king. See the photos below:
The death of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, has brought up many controversies. First, there were disputes about whether he had really died, then disagreement over the curfew in the state and now the ‘Abobaku’. The Abobaku was said to have reportedly run away after the death of the prestigious Oba. Abobaku is a man that dies with the king.
