The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, his wife Olori Wuraola and members of his entourage visited the Smithsonian Museum of African Art, in Washington DC yesterday June 21st. During a visit, Shango worshipers on his delegation performed a traditional rite that involved fire and smoke.
The US Fire Service were alerted and they immediately responded by arriving at the scene. An explanation on what was actually going on pacified the firefighters but they still stood on stand to observe and prevent any incident from occurring. See more photos below:
