Ooni of Ife Declares, We’re Not Idol Worshippers

Influential Yoruba monarch and Ooni of Ife, has replied his critics and once again cleared the air over his religious beliefs as he insists that he is not an idol worshipper and serve the God Almighty.


Following the massive backlash he got some weeks ago after saying that Jesus Christ is his father, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Babatunde Ogunwusi Ojaja II, has once again given his critics a lot to discuss and fuel speculations over his religious faith.
The influential monarch who was pictured in his white traditional ceremonial dress with his messengers, took to his social media page to clear the air on traditional worship.
In a new post released on his Instagram page, the Ooni noted that people tagged as idol worshippers are expressing their love, adoration and respect to the Almighty God.
“We are tagged as idol worshippers, but truth be told we are not idol worshippers. Our traditions give all the glory, adoration and honor to the almighty God which we know as Olodumare. #OoniofIfe,” he wrote.
