Sources in Ile Ife told us that the Kingmakers and members of the Isoro will receive the monarch and begin installation rites as soon as he arrives.

The Ile Oduduwa, which is the palace of the Ooni, is also being manned by armed security men, with an armoured personnel carrier stationed there.

“The Kabiyesi will officially arrive Ife tomorrow (Tuesday) and the kingmakers and members of the Isoro will take it up from there,” Adelowo Ogunleye, Secretary of the Giesi Ruling House, said.

“Once he arrives the kingmakers and members of Isoro will begin the process of crowing him.

“We do not know how long it will take before that process will be concluded, but that will be left for both the kingmakers and the Kabiyesi.”

He also revealed that the new Ooni who is based in Lagos, will not approach the palace on his arrival until the rituals were concluded.
