The Oluwo of Iwo, Osun state, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, has been suspended for six months following his alleged attack on the Agbowu of Ogbagbaa, Oba Dhirulahi Akinropo during a peace meeting to resolve a land dispute among monarchs on February 14th by the Osun State Traditional Rulers’ Council.
The emergency meeting which was presided over by Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi held at Osun State Government Secretariat, Abere.
