Some youths in Osun have protested a petition written by a group of chiefs to the state government, asking for the removal Oluwo of Iwo, Abdulrasheed Akanbi, over alleged misconduct.
The PUNCH reports that the group, under the aegis of Concerned kingmakers of Iwoland, in a letter dated September 9, 2020, written to governor Adegboyega Oyetola, accused the monarch of engaging in acts not expected of a traditional ruler, including fights against some notable personalities within and outside his domain.
They also said Akanbi, after his coronation in 2016, declared himself as an “Emperor”, a title the kingmakers said is not known to Iwo history.
But in a video shared the social media, the protesting youths can be heard saying the Oluwo of Iwo delivered them from slavery.
