The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi has been accused of causing tensions at a meeting in Osun State after he beat up a monarch.
The Oluwo of Iwo is said to have gotten up from his seat and attacked Oba Dhirulahi Akinropo, Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa town, at the meeting organized for royal father by the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of zone 11, Bashir Makama.
The report was confirmed by the Olu of Ile-ogbo, Oba Agbaje Habeeb Adetoyese, who revealed how shocking the incident was to everyone.
He said: “This is indeed a bestial conduct that is highly unbecoming of an ordinary individual, let alone a royal father. How could a monarch of Oluwo status descend so low to the level of physically assaulting another king in the presence of AIG; this is strange to say the least.
” He just stood up from where he was sitting without any provocation and started beating a revered monarch from Ogbaagba, it was the AIG himself that rescued the monarch from him.
“We are calling on Governor Oyetola to quickly suspend Oluwo with immediate effect, keeping him on that throne portends great danger to other kings and the state at large”.
The Oluwo has now responded saying”, there is no issue at all, I wonder why they are so sensational about the issue, we would take care of it, why are they inviting you guys over such an issue, I don’t think it is necessary.” he said.
The attacked monarch is now receiving treatment at the Osun State General Hospital, Asubiaro, Osogb.
