It should be recalled that on Saturday, October 8th 2016, Prince Adegboyega Abimbola Ogunwusi, the eldest brother of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi was installed the Sooko Laekun of Ile-Ife. A very powerful position.
The title makes him the head of the princes of Ife and the right hand man of the Ooni. The conferment took place at the Oonirisa Palace, Eruwa, Ile-Ife and going by the plans, which Society Gists is privy to, it was a grand event. Why did the Ooni choose this easygoing gun? Who is Prince Adegboyega Ogunwusi and why has he been quiet all these while? These were the questions many were asking when the announcement was made penultimate week. He told us how his journey started from his days at Old Ife Road, Agodi Gate in Ibadan in his early years at 7th Day Adventist School, to his days at Fatima College and OSCAS in Ile Ife. He also reviewed his khaki days to the blue days and the merry-go-rounds with the Reverends, to coping with the nitty-gritty of VI’s geography to the beautiful days at Romford.
“Though the road was rough sometimes, though there were travails at some of the turns, but I learnt to live and love life. Modesty is my watchword because bintin laiye even when there is much to savour.
Society Gists sighted the powerful prince of Ife last week and he was happy to socialize once again as friends and numerous admirers were all over him throughout the event.
