The palace of the Oba of Lagos caught fire yesterday, May 2. The cause of the fire is yet unknown and the oba was said to have been taken to a safe place.

The incident occurred barely a week after the Oba of Lagos shunned the Ooni Of Ife at a public function.

Ooni Of Ife has reacted to the fire incident.

According to Premium Times;

The spokesperson of the Ooni’s palace, Moses Olafare, said that the Ife monarch, Enitan Ogunwusi, is unhappy with the fire incident.

“We are not happy over the fact that the palace of Lagos king got burnt, we can only sympathise with the palace on the development,” he said.

“People are entitled to their own views,” he said. “But what people say doesn’t mean that is the position of the palace.”

“What happened is mere coincidence and should not be traced to the incident in Lagos, we send our sympathies,” he added.
