The Oluwo in Council regrets the unfortunate incidence that transpired between the Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa and Oluwo of Iwo last week.
We will also like to put it on record that the Oluwo of Iwoland Oba (Dr) Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi Telu1 did not at anytime assault the Agbowu or any other oba for that matter.
However, we respect the decision of the Osun State Council of Obas to suspend the Oluwo from council of Obas meetings;though the suspension was harsh and undeserved, but Oluwo will abide by it.
Once again we express our gratitude and respect for the Council of Obas and the leadership under His Imperial Majesty, Ooni Of Ife ,Oba Babatunde Enitan Ogunwusi
