Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, is a Nigerian monarch. He is the traditional ruler, or Ooni, of the Yoruba kingdom of Ile-Ife
While hosting Osun devotees in his palace as the ancient city celebrated the Osun festival on Saturday, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi informed people of other religions that it is very unfair calling Osun worshippers idol worshippers.
”Unlike the way we used to have it in Ife, we were forced to restrict this celebration which is a major festival in Ife.
”Our restriction made us to ensure that we don’t create more problems while trying to solve the one at hand. Osun festival as the world knows is the celebration of water and we all know that water is life.
“We’re using this instance to reconnect with our creator through nature to cleanse the world, and especially to end the pandemic. We are remembering our ancestors and it is unfair to call us idol worshipers.”
