Suspension: Oluwo Reacts, Says he was Suspended for Swagging


The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi has said he was only suspended from the Traditional Council and not as Oluwo of Iwoland. 

The Osun State Traditional Council had on Friday suspended the monarch for six months over allegation of assault on another royal father.

The council also constituted a committee headed by Orangun of Ila, Oba Wahab Adedotun, to further investigate the matter involving Oluwo and other traditional rulers in Iwoland. 

Reacting to the news of his suspension on Friday, in an Instagram post, Oba Akanbip said he was suspended because of “swagging”.

He added that the suspension is also subject to the approval of the governor.

“He was never suspended as Oluwo of Iwoland. The Osun State Traditional Council has only recommended his suspension from the council meetings and activities for six months on the guise that his conduct (being too flashy, stylish, human rights defender and swagging); and that (the suspension) is even subject to Governor’s approval. This clarification is important for the public notice!” the post read.
