It was a dream come true for the people of Modakeke-Ife, Osun State,         yesterday, when, for the first time, their traditional ruler, the Ogunsua of Modakeke, Oba Francis Adedoyin,  was officially crowned by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade.

He was subsequently presented with a staff of office by  Governor  Olagunsoye Oyinlola amidst ovation from the crowd that gathered to witness the occasion.

The crowning came barely 100 years after the community had been agitating for recognition and self independent from their host community, Ile-Ife.
