Ooni Of Ife Orders Immediate Release of Over 300 Hausas Under The Yoruba's Captivity


The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has ordered the release of Hausas in Yorubas captivity after the crisis ensued on Wednesday at ile ife. The Oba also warns the yorubas that nothing must happen to them. According to report, No fewer than 300 Hausa were taken captive by the Yoruba.

Oba Ogunwusi appealed to the warring factions to give peace a chance because, according to him, there is no gain in crisis.

Speaking through his media aide, Comrade Moses Olafare, the monarch said he had instructed some palace men to see to the rescue of the Hausa who were captured by the Ife.

He said peace would soon be restored between the two warring factions.

He said: “As Hausa are sojourners on this land of Ile-Ife likewise Ife indigenes live in other towns and cities across the country and in diaspora.

“Let’s give peace a chance and maintain peace and harmony in the land.”

Also, the Elejesi of Ejesi Kingdom, Ife, Oba Babatunde Awosunle, called on the people to allow peace to reign in the land.
