Oluwo of Iwo beats up another monarch at a meeting in Osun State

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, has been accused of beating up another monarch during a meeting in Osun State.

The meeting was organized by the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of zone 11, Bashir Makama, over a dispute on land between royal fathers in Iwo.

A source revealed that the Oluwo of Iwo got up from where he was seated and descended on Oba Dhirulahi Akinropo, Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa town, to the point of inflicting injuries on him.

Oba Dhirulahi was immediately rushed down to the Osun State General Hospital, Asubiaro, Osogbo, where he was treated of the injuries.

Oba Agbaje Habeeb Adetoyese, who confirmed the incident described it as shocking to everyone present at the meeting which had some government officials and police personnel.

Calling on Governor Oyetola to call the Oluwo of Iwo to order, he further accused him of issuing threats to other monarchs after the incident occurred.

He said: “This is indeed a bestial conduct that is highly unbecoming of an ordinary individual, let alone a royal father. How could a monarch of Oluwo status descend so low to the level of physically assaulting another king in the presence of AIG; this is strange to say the least.

” He just stood up from where he was sitting without any provocation and started beating a revered monarch from Ogbaagba, it was the AIG himself that rescued the monarch from him.

“We are calling on Governor Oyetola to quickly suspend Oluwo with immediate effect, keeping him on that throne portends great danger to other kings and the state at large”.

The Oluwo of Iwo who reacted to the allegation on phone said, "there is no issue at all, I wonder why they are so sensational about the issue, we would take care of it, why are they inviting you guys over such an issue, I don’t think it is necessary.” he said
