Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, who is the traditional ruler of Iwo kingdom in Osun state, has been suspended for six months by the state’s traditional rulers’ council.
The Witness reports that the traditional ruler of Iwo kingdom in Osun state was suspended for claims of dragging the council’s name into disrepute.
It was gathered that the state council at its emergency meeting held at the Finance Building at the State Secretariat on Friday, February 21, banned the Oluwo from attending its meetings and also constituted a committee headed by Orangun of Ila, Oba Wahab Adedotun to further investigate the matter.
Oba Wahab Adedotun, the Orangun of Ila, in his address to reporters after the meeting, said the decision was not taken as a result of the 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.
The Oluwo was alleged to have punched a fellow monarch, the Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa, Oba Dhikurulahi Akinropo during a peace meeting at the instance of the Assistant Inspector General of Police Zone XI, Bashir Makama at his office in the state on the dispute between the monarch and members of Iwo traditional rulers council.
