“It seems they are jealous of my style. They all had grudges against me, they are my enemies but I know God will fight for me,” he said.
He insisted that another monarch cannot suspend him, saying they only had the power to bar him from attending the meeting of the traditional rulers.
Speaking about his alleged rudeness to the Alaafin Of Oyo, Lamidi Adeyemi, he said he was not crowned in Oyo and is not expected to do the bidding of the king.
A committee headed by Orangun of Ila, Oba Wahab Adedotun, was also constituted by the council to further investigate the matter involving Oluwo and Obas in Iwo land.
