Osun State Council of Traditional Rulers, on Friday suspended the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi,for six months.
The royal fathers took the decision during their emergency meeting held at Osun State Government Secretariat, Abere, presided over by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.
They said his suspension was not in connection with the alleged assault on the Agbowu of Ogbaagba, Oba Dhikirulahi Akinropo, but over what they termed Oluwo’s indecent acts to some monarchs, including the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, Alake of Egbaland and the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi.
Briefing journalists at the of the meeting which lasted for about three hours, the Orangun of Ila, Oba Wahab Adedotun said: “Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi has been suspended for six months.”
A committee headed by Orangun of Ila, Oba Adedotun, was also constituted by the council to further investigate the matter involving Oluwo and the other Obas.
