The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi has warned the staff and members of his palace against going out without wearing a face mask to protect themselves against coronavirus.
According to the Oluwo who once begged God to infect him with coronavirus, any member of his palace found without a face mask in public will be sacked.
He made this known in a post in which he cautioned his subjects on the need to avoid taking the coronavirus pandemic as a joke.
“I want to passionately appeal to my subjects to always use facemasks. Coronavirus is airborne. It is not infection to joke with. It is real and it kills. Let’s be proactive by using our facemask regularly and respect precautionary directives from the government”
“My chiefs, princes and staff must wear it to the palace. Any of my staff seeing outside or visiting the palace without facemask will be retrenched. Let’s respect God in the present situation and stay safe,” the statement read.
