The Olugbo of Ugbo kingdom, Oba Fredrick Obateru Akinruntan, in Ondo State has drawn the ire of the Aare Onakakanfo of Yoruba land, Aare Gani Adams.
The Yoruba generalissimo described Oba Akinruntan’s action as a desecration of Yoruba’s cultural values and tradition.
Aare Gani Adams said
“I was in South Africa, on a holiday when this was brought to my attention. This imprudence is fraudulent, a clear and present danger that can destroy our tradition if something urgent is not done immediately.
“I urge South-West governors, especially Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, and Yoruba monarchs, to please call him to order immediately before it is too late.”
