IFE – The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has responded to the claims of popular Yoruba Activist, Sunday Igboho, who accused him of not representing the Yoruba race well when he had a meeting with president Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement by Ooni’s spokesman, Mr. Olafare, he said “Mr. Adeyemo was going overboard in his conduct and that he should not believe that he is bigger than the authorities.”
“We have not made any official statements on the matter and the matter does not really make any sense to us. If somebody who identifies himself with the cause of Yoruba could be talking in that manner about the Ooni who is indisputably a spiritual head of the race, then one must wonder whether or not the person has been representing us truly. It gives room to people to suspect your motive.”
On the threat of violence “Well, he said that in a video that is well circulated and the video must have gotten to security agents who would see beyond what we are seeing. It is a threat to life if you say that if somebody is going, you’re going to waylay that person and fire him. If you’re bold enough to say that, to anybody not to talk of even an Ooni of Ife, I believe that security agents will see that as a threat to life. While we’re not ready to report any matter to security agents, I believe that they will know what to do.”
