The Eyo Festival | MAYEGUN

Eyo Festival was originally staged at Oke Ipa but it later moved to Lagos Island. Back in the days, the Eyo Festival is held to escort the soul of a departed Lagos King or important Chief and to usher in a new king. The white-clad Eyo Masquerades represent the spirit of the dead and are referred to as Agogoro Eyo, as in Tall Eyo.

Pastor Drops Dead Conducting Funeral Of Herbalist Who Previously Warned Not To Be Taken Into Church – OnlineNigeria News

Ominous signs of what was to come be­gan shortly after Pastor Odum began the open air funeral service. Soon after those at the ceremony took their seats under the bright and sunny weather, rain began to fall amid lightening and heavy thunder storms. This forced the casket bearing Pa Okoko’s remains to be taken back to the Obu. Immediately that was done, the rain was said to have stopped instantly. To the chagrin of those around, as soon as the cas­ket was brought out the second time for the continuation of the service, the rain started again this time in greater proportion. At that point, Pastor Odum, who went ahead with the conduct of the funeral service, suddenly collapsed.
