I will Abide By My Suspension — Oluwo




Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, has said the Olugbo of Ugbo, Oba Obateru Akinruntan, should not be criticized for crowning some people living outside the country as obas.


The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi on Monday said although his suspension by the Osun State Traditional Rulers’ Council was undeserved, he would abide by it.

Oluwo was suspended and also banned by the council from attending its meetings on the grounds that he disrespected Ooni of Ife, Alake of Egbaland and Alaafin of Oyo.

In a statement issued in Osogbo by the Chief Press Secretary to Oluwo, Alli Ibraheem, the monarch insisted he didn’t assault the Agbowu of Ogbaagba.

“The Oluwo-in-Council regrets the unfortunate incident that transpired between the Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa and Oluwo of Iwo last week.

“We will like to put it on record that the Oluwo did not at any time assault the Agbowu or any other Oba for that matter. However, we respect the decision of the Osun State Council of Obas to suspend the Oluwo from the Council of Oba’s meetings. Although the suspension was harsh and undeserved, the Oluwo will abide by it.

“Once again, we express our gratitude and respect to the Council of Obas and the leadership under the imperial majesty, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi,” the statement read.
