On Tuesday, the 2nd of May, a strange fire engulfed the Lagos palace, though the Oba himself has reportedly been carted away to safety, it is yet still very unfortunate that the fire took away some precious possessions of his including his most treasured white horse tail.
But come to think of it, fire outbreaks occur on a daily basis but how do we reconcile the fact that this happened now, barely two weeks after snubbing the Ooni of Ife for no significant reason at all? You might consider the other factors that led to this fire but here I think that the 73 year old monarch has finally gotten his karma reward!
From another point of view, it’s also rumoured that one out of the fair group of the Igbo citizens whom the Oba threatened to drown if they do not vote in members of the APC has probably risen to embark on a revenge mission against the monarch.
For crying out loud, what is the Oba’s seat compared to the Ooni of Ife’s, I mean what is the Oba’s place in democracy? He probably thinks he is now a force in the nation!
Well, as it is customary to always sympathize with people, I mean the Bible asks us to; I wish him a quick recovery from the shock and of course a longer horse tail.
