In Nigeria when it comes to traditional events we know what to expect but I guess the Washington DC emergency team didn’t quite understand our culture and how they are celebrated.
It is understandable bringing in native assurance equipment and the assurance itself in higher institutions in Nigeria during cultural events but taking them across boarder is something else. All the same it's like a network that follows us everywhere we go.

Who knows if they as well even changed the weather forecast before event. That’s beyond the imagination of the whites though, so they wouldn’t even think of it. At the event what triggered fire signal to the emergency team is the traditional performance were some Yoruba’s had to breath out fire from their mouth to entertainment the Ooni and mark the event as usually done in Nigeria.

Within couple of minutes firefighters were alerted and showed up only to discover that the Yoruba’s who Washington DC declare a day for as Yoruba day are only doing their thing. This isn’t Nollywood movie at all, the Ooni Ogunwusi was there.

Here are some photos of the event:
