Residents of Ayedire, Olaoluwa and Iwo thronged the street of Osogbo, Osun state capital to protest the alleged assault on one the Royal fathers in Osun West Senatorial District by Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi.
All the Chiefs and some residents in the ancient town of Ogbaagba and Ile-Ogbo and Iwo stated the peaceful protest to register their grievances over how they described Oluwo’s action as barbaric and total disrespectful to the tradition and culture of Yoruba race.
CityMirrorNews has reported that the Oluwo, who was invited to the Zone 11 police headquarters in Osogbo by the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of the zone, Bashir Makama’ beat up a fellow monarch.
Oba Akanbi allegedly stood up from where he was sitting and descended on Oba Dhikrulahi Akinropo, Agbowu of Ogbaagba town, inflicting injury on him.
The protesters however called for the suspension of Oluwo with immediate effect.
