They were received by Laadin of Ife, High-Chief Kayode Awofiranye.

Addressing the protesters, he said: “I sympathise with you and I promise that your message will be delivered to His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, for prompt communication with the government.”

Comrade Niyi Adefare, who had addressed the High-Chief on behalf his colleagues, urged the Ooni of Ife to assist the helpless senior citizens to get their entitlements.
