Osun-Osogbo festival ends with low turnout

The grand finale of the annual Osun-Osogbo festival ended on Friday with a low turnout of people to the groove due to strict adherence to the COVID-19 protocols.

Osun state government had on Tuesday announced a ban on social activities and gatherings at the Osun-Osogbo festival and restricted visitors to the UNESCO World Heritage site.
Meanwhile, the state government approved the observance of traditional rites and routines associated with the festival (in strict compliance with COVID-19 guidelines) and that only authorised persons and worshippers were allowed into the Grove.
