Recall that in February, the Osun traditional rulers’ council had suspended the Oluwo of Iwo for six months following confirmed reports of physical assault on a fellow monarch.

Reacting to the report, Oba Akanbi said he is still the Oluwo of Iwoland. According to him, he was only punished for being stylish, flashy and a human rights activist.

He said he was only suspended by the council from attending meetings and taking part in some activities in Iwo.

The young monarch insisted that the decision of the council is subject to the approval of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and that until then, he remains the only Oluwo of Iwoland.
