The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has warned the people of Ile-Ife and its environs in Osun State, to maintain peaceful coexistence as the nation celebrates Democracy Day on June 12.
Ooni, represented by the Obalufe of Ifeland, Oba Idowu Adediwura, gave the advice at a peaceful meeting with security agencies in Ifeland on Friday at High Chiefs Court in Ooni’s Palace.
Ogunwusi warned parents to advise their children to stay away from causing any crisis, adding that security agencies are prepared to deal with anyone who disrupts the peace of the society.
The monarch noted that a lot had been heard that June 12 would be bloody, adding that he doesn’t want untoward things to happen to anyone.
“We implore parents to advise their children not to cause any crisis, because security agencies are more than prepared to deal decisively with anybody that plans to disrupt the peace we are enjoying in Ifeland,” he added.
