Traditional Council Suspends Oluwo For 6 Months Over Misconduct

Osun State Council of Traditional Rulers on Friday suspended the Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi for six months for dragging the institution through the mud with his public conduct.

The council at its emergency meeting held in Osogbo banned the monarch from attending its meetings during the period of his suspension.

The Council had constituted a committee headed by the Orangun of Ila, Oba Wahab Adedotun to further investigate allegations of misconduct to some members of the revered institution.

Addressing journalists after the meeting, the Orangun of Ila, Oba Wahab Adedotun said the decision was not because of alleged fight between the Oluwo and Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa, Oba Dhikurulahi Akinropo but due to his conduct to other traditional rulers in Yorubaland.

He mentioned such traditional rulers to include the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, Alake of Egbaland, Oba Micheal Adedotun Gbadebo and the Ooni of Ile-Ife, Oba Adeyeye Eniitan Ogunwusi.

Recently, Oba Akanbi 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.

The AIG was said to have invited the monarchs to his office in Osogbo on dispute between the monarch and members of Iwo Council of traditional rulers.

According to Oba Adedotun, the council agreed that Oluwo needs to conduct himself in a way that depicts royalty, adding that he must accord other traditional rulers within and outside the state the required respect.

“We all agreed that he should be suspended for six months. It is not because of his issue with the Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa, but because of his attitude towards other traditional rulers within and outside Osun state.

“He was disrespectful to traditional rulers at the meeting and shown affront towards the Alaafin of Oyo, Alake of Egbaland, Oluwo-Oke and the Ooni of Ile-Ife. We believe enough is enough”.
