The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi has said he would adhere to the suspension issued on him by Osun State Traditional Rulers’ Council last week Friday.
Oluwo was suspended after an emergency meeting by Osun State Traditional Rulers’ Council that Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi presided over.
The Council also banned the monarch from attending its meetings on the ground that he disrespected Ooni, Alake of Egba and Alaafin of Oyo

In a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to Oluwo, Alli Ibraheem which was made available to newsmen in Osogbo on Monday expressed regrets about the faceoff between Oluwo of Iwo and Agbowu of Ogbaagba.
The statement read, “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 did not at any time 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 the council of Oba’s meetings; though the suspension was harsh and undeserved, the Oluwo will abide by it.
“Once again we express our gratitude and respect for the council of Obas and the leadership under the imperial majesty, the Ooni Of Ife, Oba Babatunde Enitan ogunwusi.”
