The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, says he remains the Oluwo of Iwoland despite his suspension by the Osun State Council of Traditional Rulers.
He said this in a post on his Instagram page on Friday.
The post was in a reaction to his suspension by the Osun State Traditional Council.
The post read, “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!”
Oluwo Akanbi was on Friday suspended for six months by the Osun State Council of Traditional Rulers for allegedly assaulting another monarch.
