Alleged Assault: Osun Traditional Council Suspends Oluwo, Constitutes Investigation Committee 

0

Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, has been suspended by the Osun state Traditional Rulers Council following his alleged assault on another monarch, the Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa, Oba Dhikurulahi Akinropo.

Oba Akanbi was alleged to have punched Oba Akinropo during a peace meeting over land dispute at the instance of the Assistant Inspector General of Police Zone XI, Bashir Makama at his office in the state.

However, the council at its emergency meeting held at the Finance Building at the State Secretariat on Friday banned the monarch from attending its meetings.

It also constituted a committee headed by Orangun of Ila, Oba Wahab Adedotun, to further investigate the matter.

Addressing journalists after the meeting, the Orangun of Ila, Oba Wahab Adedotun said 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.
