The famous Oyo activist, Sunday Igboho, has finally secured the forgiveness of Enitan Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife, days after he tendered an apology to the monarch.
The benevolent position of the revered Yoruba traditional ruler was made known by his director of media and public affairs, Moses Olafare, on Thursday, February 4., The Cable reports.
Olafare said as part of his royal conduct, the Ooni does not engage in verbal exchanges in issues that threaten the peace of the Yoruba nation.
Added to this, the Ooni's aide said that as a forgiving father, the Arole Oodua has accepted the apology of Igboho who he considers as one of his sons.
He said the embattled activist went through the Baba Olugbon of Ile-Igbon to forward his sincere regret over his rude expressions to the monarch.
“Before tendering the apology, it was the Baba Olugbon of Ile-Igbon that first called and informed Arole Oodua on phone that he had scolded Sunday on phone on his misdeeds, and that he would soon tender a public apology to him on the matter via a video release. Sunday Igboho thereafter released the video in which he tendered his apology."
Earlier, Oba Ogunwusi had reacted to the derogatory comments made against him by Igboho.
The first-class monarch who spoke through Olafare described Igboho's comments as irresponsible.
Olafare also said the palace would appropriately handle the threat of violence made by Igboho against the monarch.
Igboho had during a virtual town hall meeting on Wednesday, February 3, with Nigerians in the diaspora, attacked Ooni and some southwest political leaders.
He specifically accused the respected Yoruba monarch of collecting dollars from President Muhammadu Buhari when he recently visited the Presidential Villa recently.
