Feb 5, 2018 – Iwo High Chief Abiola Ogundokun Slams Oluwo For Insulting Ooni Of Ife, Urges Him To Stop Disgracing Iwo Royal Stool
The Oluwo of Iwoland, Rasheed Akanbi has been warned to stop insulting the stool of Ooni of Ife days after he openly blocked his access to his seat during a function in Port Harcourt.
The Obanla of Iwo in Osun state, High Chief Abiola Ogundokun in a statement released over the weekend in Osogbo said it was unbecoming of a ruler of Oluwo’s status to disparage and abuse the Ooni on the Internet, television and newspapers.
“I plead with kabiyesi, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife, as a father and senior king to Oluwo, to swallow all the falsehood and attacks being made against him by Oluwo on the social media, television and newspapers in the past one and a half years.”
The high chief who cited an instance where the Oluwo said he had superior claims to the stool of Ooni of Ife because he is a direct son of Luwo before he was scolded and stopped by Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III urged the monarch to stop disgracing Iwo royal stool, adding that Iwo indigenes are wise and disciplined people.
