In a press release by the Oluwo Chiefs in Council today, the council reacts to the suspension of the monarch and has this to say in response as posted on the social media handle ‘The Palace of Emperor Telu 1 of Greater Iwo Kingdom’:
“The Oluwo in council regrets the unfortunate incidence that transpired between the Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa and Oluwo of Iwo last week.
We will also like to put it on record that the Oluwo did not at anytime assault the Agbowu or any other oba for that matter.
However, we respect the decision of the osun state council of Obas to suspend the oluwo from council of Obas meetings; though the suspension was harsh and undeserved, the Oluwo will abide by it.
Once again we express our gratitude and respect for the council of Obas and the leadership under the imperial majesty, the Ooni Of Ife, Oba Babatunde Enitan Ogunwusi.”
- This may be a step to the right direction and we hope that peace prevails.
