OVERVIEW OF: Oluwo of Iwo faces dethronement after his criminal past for fraud in 1999 emerges
The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, is confronting perhaps the hardest time on the seat as his subjects have betrayed him as well as requested his prompt deposing over different infractions, SR reports.
In a letter to the Osun State Government dated June 17, 2020, the Association of Iwoland Indigenes in Diaspora through their legal counselor, Peter Adeosun, raised various claims against the ruler, requiring his expulsion for net maltreatment of office.
They said Oba Akanbi's character didn't befit an individual of his status and gauge as he generally moved around with equipped hooligans, rapscallions and criminals to disturb, scare, attack and assault people whom he sees as adversaries.
"Your Excellency, it is our brief as prove by different correspondences made accessible to us by our customers that Oluwo Abdulrasheed Akanbi has been behaving in habits which are contradictory to that of a ruler in any clime and extremely unbecoming of a Yoruba Oba.
"It is consequently discouraging to our customers that the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi (hereinafter alluded to as Oba Akanbi), a Yoruba lord who should be the overseer of Iwo culture and qualities has been distorting the enthusiasm of Iwoland and this is getting rather disgraceful," the attorney kept in touch with the state representative.
