The Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II on Saturday, 28th of April 2018, visited the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II in Ile-Ife, Osun State.
The Ooni received the revered monarch at his Enuwa Palace in Ile-Ife, Osun State. While both traditional rulers paid a courtesy visit to Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
Recall that the Benin monarch’s visit marks the first time in 37 years since an Oba of Benin visited Ile-Ife. Prior to Saturday’s visit, Oba Ereduiwa’s visit in 1981 was the last by an Oba of Benin to Ile-Ife.
Oba Ewuare II also visited several significant places, such as the Oranmiyan groove.
