A Nigerian pastor based in Ghana, who simply identified himself as Pastor Paul from Imo State, has declared that Dele Momodu, founder of Ovation Magazine, is the next Ooni of Ife.

The man of God warned that if Momodu is not installed as Ooni of Ife, there would be bloodshed in the country, warning that this is a message from God.

He made this known in a telephone conversation with Bayo Onanuga, the CEO of PM News/TheNews.

“If the Ife people refuse to crown Momodu, there will be bloodshed,” the Pastor said. But Onanuga pointed out to him that, “Although Dele Momodu was born in Ife, his connection is as near as Gbongan and as far as somewhere in Edo State.”

Momodu graduated from the University of Ife, (now Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife) in 1982, and holds a degree in Yoruba and a Masters in English Literature.

In 1986, Momodu served the late Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade Olubuse II, managing the Motel Royal Limited reportedly owned by the monarch.
