The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, has seized a beaded crown from an Ifa priest. He also hung the crown on a tall tree after the said priest wore the crown during Ifa ceremony and paraded himself as a king.

The monarch took the decision following petitions written against the said Babalawo, Ifatokun Jayeola Morakinyo (also known as Oba Edu), who was said to have worn the beaded crown during an anniversary celebration in Ifa Temple.

In a statement yesterday, Oba Adeyemi said he had to take the action to avert violence and possible destruction of property in Isale Oyo over the development.
