Ooni of Ife- Sunday Igboho didn’t listen to my warning
Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife, has said that after meeting Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, he had advised Sunday Igboho to drop his agitation.
The Ooni of Ife further stated that Igboho didn’t heed the president’s warning due to wrong advice from friends.
The monarch made the revelation in an interview with BBC Yoruba.
Ooni of Ife said rather than listen to the caution, Igboho hurled insults on traditional rulers.
“Many people advised him wrongly. He listened to them. He started abusing everyone, including monarchs”.
“After I left President Buhari’s place, I called on monarchs and elders of Yoruba land for a meeting to advise Igboho to exercise patience but he got carried away by the praises of those who were not even solidly behind him”.
“He hurled so many bad words but he is still our son. God owns forgiveness. We’ve forgiven him. If he had listened, he wouldn’t have found himself in his current travail,” he said
