On Friday, the Osun state traditional rulers council held an emergency meeting at the Finance Building at the State Secretariat on Friday and suspended the Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi for six months.
According to the Osun State traditional rulers council, Oba Oluwo attempt to drag the institution into the mud with his public conduct.
The Oluwo of Iwoland was banned from attending the council’s meetings and a committee headed by Orangun of Ila, Oba Wahab Adedotun was constituted to further investigate the matter
After the meeting, the Orangun of Ila, Oba Wahab Adedotun told newsmen the decision was not because of alleged fight between the Oluwo and Agbowu but due to his conduct to other traditional rulers in Yorubaland, including the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, Alake of Egbaland and the Ooni of Ile-Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.
Recall that the Oluwo allegedly punched a fellow monarch, the Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa, Oba Dhikurulahi Akinropo during a peace meeting at the instance of the Assistant Inspector General of Police Zone XI, Bashir Makama at his office in the state.
