Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdurasheed Adewale Akanbi is in hot soup as hundreds of people from the three local governments of Olaoluwa, Iwo and Ayedire in Osun State on Monday, February 17, 2020 embarked on a peaceful protest to demand for his suspension for beating up a fellow king, Oba Dikhirulahi Akinropo, Agbowu of Ogbaagba.
Spokesperson of the protesters, Hon. Sikiru Araoye, said;
“The current Oluwo lacks every quality of a royal father as harbinger of tradition and custom.”
“The manner in which Agbowu of Ogbaagba was brutally attacked by Oluwo, which landed him in the hospital, and still receiving treatment till now is barbaric. It is indeed unbecoming of our royal institution.”
“The Osun State Government must move fast and prevent this issue from snowballing into communal clashes that could be difficult to curtail.”
“All the communities in Iwo axis are tired of this present Oluwo, he has bastardized our traditional institution and desecrate the sanctity of that revered stool. We hereby demand for his suspension without delay.”
