The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, has narrated how a class mate beat him to stupor at Loyola College, Ibadan.

According to the monarch in a recent interview with Sunday Punch, “When I got into secondary school at about age 11, there was a classmate of mine who beat me up one day by the classroom and gave me a very deep scar on my hand. The scar is on my left hand and it almost rendered that hand useless, especially for me being left-handed. Every time I see that scar, I remember the experience.”

The monarch, who recently married Olori Wuraola also spoke about his first girlfriend. “In primary school, there was a girl I liked and when I was about five years old, our parents used to call us husband and wife. That’s unbelievable, but I won’t go further than that. Then, in secondary school, I had a small feeling for someone and I used to write letters to her. I still have those letters till today. I mean, I am human.”



He also narrated how his parents were disappointed in him for coming third in his class. “I used to win a lot of prizes as a kid and that always made my parents proud. Another memory was getting into Loyola College, Ibadan, and there is a story to that. I always came first in class in primary school. One day, I came third, losing to a boy and a girl who both came first. There was no second position and I came third. My parents were very disappointed and I promised them that I would finish well. When I went in to sit my common entrance examination, I came first in my entire primary school and with the tough competition there, I was able to enter Loyola College. I got in on merit. That made my parents proud and I was able to prove to them that I was still in control of the situation.”

“My parents were strict, especially my late mum. I will never forget my mum. My father is still alive but we don’t see because of tradition.
