[ICYMI] Ooni to Igboho: You are forgiven, I am behind you
Written by Taiwo Adediran on February 5, 2021
The Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II, has forgiven Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, over the viral video in which Igboho lambasted the monarch.
The media aide to Ooni, Moses Olafare, who made this known on Thursday, said the monarch is “still solidly behind” Igboho’s move to drive “criminal herdsmen” away from the South-West.
Olafare explained that Ogunwusi was silent on Igboho’s allegations because “it is not in the style of the Ooni to make an official response on any matter that threatens the unity and peace of the country, especially as it affects the descendants of Oduduwa worldwide”. Igboho had on Wednesday morning at a virtual ‘Townhall With Yoruba In Diaspora’ alleged Ooni of not supporting him.
