The Agbowu of Ogbaagba, Oba Dhirulahi Akinropo, has narrated his ordeal today as the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba AbduRasheed Adewale Akanbi beat him to stupor in the presence of AIG, Zone 11, Mr Bashir Makama
In a telephone interview with Agbowu of Ogbaagba, the monarch said “We were in a meeting conveyed by the AIG over land dispute, suddenly, the Oluwo rose up and came straight to me and started punching me, if not for the AIG that came to my rescue, it would have been disastrous”
A source said the Oluwo has been asking the monarchs to stop selling lands because the lands in Iwoland belong to him and the monarchs resisted, a situation that prompted the AIG to summon meeting to forestall breakdown of laws and order.
“The police have obtained my statement and we are heading to court. What he did is shameful as a monarch and must be punished for his untraditional behavior” The monarch declared
Another monarch at the meeting, said, Oluwo has gone beyond his boundary and would be dealt with and even vacate the stool.
In his reaction, the Oluwo, said there was no issue, saying the monarchs are just being sensational about it.
