The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi has expressed his readiness to respect the decision of the Osun State Council of Obas that suspended him for six months over alleged misconduct.
Oluwo had earlier claimed that his suspension was a mere audio pronouncement and political.
He said that the Obas fail to addressed the issue which was the main reason the meeting was convened.
But, Oluwo in a statement credited to Oluwo in Council and made available to CityMirrorNews by his Chief Press Secretary, Alli Ibrahim, said he regretted the unfortunate incident that transpired between him and the Agboowu of Ogbaagba, Dhikrulahi Akinropo, last week.
He also said he regrets the ‘unfortunate’ incident that transpired
He, however, maintained that he never assaulted Mr Akinropo.
“The Oluwo in council regrets the unfortunate incident that transpired between the Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa and Oluwo of Iwo last week. We will also like to put it on record that the Oluwo did not at anytime assault the Agbowu or any other oba for that matter”.
“However, we respect the decision of the Osun State Council of Obas to suspend the Oluwo from council of Obas meetings; though the suspension was harsh and undeserved, the Oluwo will abide by it”.
“Once again we express our gratitude and respect for the council of Obas and the leadership under the imperial majesty, the Ooni Of Ife, Babatunde Enitan Ogunwusi,” the statement said.
“The Oluwo is the head of the Oluwo in council.
