Oluwo should be disposed for assaulting a monarch – Fani-Kayode

Mr Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation has said the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, ought to be dethroned over the alleged assault on a monarch

InsightMedia 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.

Reacting to the development, Fani-Kayode took to his Twitter page to blast the Oluwo of Iwo.

The former minister described the incident as unacceptable and sacrilegious even as he called for Oba Akanbi to be deposed.

Fani-Kayode wrote: “When a land is ravaged by poverty even drug dealers, armed robbers and Yahoo fraudsters are paraded as elites & the kingship stool is auctioned to the highest bidder!

“The “Emir”of Iwo beat up his fellow traditional ruler! This is unacceptable and sacrilegious. He ought to be deposed.”
