Africans are to blame for slavery
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the Oluwo of Iwo spoke about slavery and who is to blame for the human dehumanization in Africa.
He said that Africans were culpable in the slavery that happened on the continent. The king stated that Africans sold their children.
The monarch pointed out:
“We were the ones asking for gun powder, for guns to conquer the other one to take slaves.”
The king argued that the continent was never conquered as it is popularly believed. He stated that Africans rather gave themselves up.
He added that he was the first king to apologise for slavery in England at the Commonwealth. Oba Abdulrasheed went further to say that the Europeans only came to the continent as explorers.
