Like the previous edition, it was crowd galore as a massive number of residents of Ikorodu trooped out to participate in a marathon ‘Woro’ procession as the much awaited 2019 Ikorodu -Oga Carnival kicked off today in grandstyle.
The event, which usually flags off the annual celebration, took off in the early hours of the day from the Ikorodu town hall where the Chairman, Ikorodu -Oga Development Association (IKODASS), Otunba Ganiyu Abiru, led a cheering crowd of Ikorodu indigenes and residents in a fun filled procession along major streets in Ikorodu.
The procession train briefly stopped over at several historic and traditional houses and shrines to pay homage.
The procession later terminated at the Ayangbure palace where different traditional groups and sects in Ikorodu displayed their traditional heritages while Oba Kabir Shotobi and other dignitaries were on ground to savour the fun offered by the gathering.
Asa, Igunuko, and Eyo among other masquerades added colour to the ‘Woro’ procession.
