It was gathered that the new monarch would worship Obatala for five days before the conclusion of the seclusion rites.

However, it was not known if the five days will be between the 21 days he will spend in Ilofi or after, as only the Isoro men could comment on it.

The new monarch will go to Obatala shrine to perform the five days’ rites which would end with celebration of bean (ekuru) festival.

Meanwhile, Olufon of Ifon-Osun, Oba Adekunle Abdul Mahroof Magbagbeola, Olumoyero 11, confirmed that the rites must not end without performing sacrificial worship of Obatala.
