Royal Rumble : Oluwo beats another King to stupor

The traditional institution in Osun state was on Friday thrown into confusion when a prominent monarch in the state , Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi suddenly descended on another monarch , Oba Dhirulahi Akinropo, Agbowu of Agbaagbaa and allegedly beat him to stupour.

The unfortunate incident according to Oba Akinropo occurred at the office of the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 11, who had called a peace meeting Akanbi allegedly attacked and punched to resolve the lingering communal discord between Iwo and Agbaagbbaa.

But Oluwo Debunked the allegation, saying there was no issue at all but our correspondent who visited Asubiaro hospital where the wounded monarch, Oba Akinropo is receiving treatment saw no fewer than eight monarchs in the hospital to sympathize with him.

According to a reliable source, the attack occured before the AIG and other monarchs from Iwoland when they were called to a meeting for settlement over land tussle in the area.

The source said the Oluwo has been asking the monarchs to stop selling lands in his town because all lands in Iwoland belong to Oluwo and the monarchs resisted, a situation that prompted the AIG to summon meeting to forestall breakdown of laws and order.

The source said: “It was in the course of the meeting that Oluwo gave the Agbowu  barrage of punches on his face and this brought an end to the peace meeting.

“Oluwo was the first to get out of the meeting in annoyance, creating scene and shouting within the AIG’s office

“Me, Oluwo, Agbowu is calling me a mad man. Ordinary Baales want to be challenging me. I will show you my worth and there will be war in the entire Iwoland.

“I am the only Oba in Iwoland, others are Baales that I gave land, they now want to be challenging me. Can any Baale in Ifeland do that to Ooni”, he fumed.

Another monarch at the meeting, the source said, was heard commenting that Oluwo has gone beyond his boundary and would be dealt with and even vacate the stool.

As at the time of filling this report Oba Akinropo was still at the trauma centre for treatment.

While reacting, Oluwo  said there was no issue,just a family misunderstanding ” saying the monarchs are just being sensational about it”
