We have good evidence to believe that Igbo race has its roots here in Ile-Ife – Ooni of Ife

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has said that they have good evidence to believe that Igbo race has its roots here in Ile-Ife.  Addressing newsmen at his palace in Ife, the monarch challenged the academia in Nigerian universities to properly document the history of Yoruba race rather than relying on jaundiced history. Ooni of Ife stated that proper documentation will not only foster unity but reveal the ties across ethnic groups. He said;  We have good evidence to believe that Igbo race has its roots here in Ile-Ife. There is Ile-Igbo here in the palace which was not a recent creation but has been existing here for decades. For this and many other reasons, I believe we need proper documentation of our history. We are not involving government in this project so that we can just place all the facts together, we must write our history properly and put things the right for the coming generations.The post We have good evidence to believe that Igbo race has its roots here in Ile-Ife – Ooni of Ife appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
