The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, has opened up on why he attacked the Agbowu of Ogbagbaa, Oba Dhirulahi Akinropo, during a peace meeting.
According to reports, the meeting was held to settle a land tussle among monarchs within Iwo axis.

Shedding some light on the report, the Oluwo of Iwo land himself, took to his Instagram page claiming he acted on self-defence.
His post reads;
”I Defended Attempt by Agbowu to Stick my Eyes After He Called Me Mad Man- Oluwo
Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba (Dr.) Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi has made a clean breast of the allegation that he beat Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa, Oba Sikiru.
Oluwo stated he was truly invited by the authority of the police to make peace on his stance curtailing excess land selling by monarchs under his domain, a pronouncement that did not go down well with those affected as they regroup to act against the authority of Oluwo who gave them the crown.
At the peace meeting held at AIG office, Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa interrupted Oluwo while making his speech and called Oba Akanbi unprintable names, pointing his staff of office at Oluwo while attempt to stick the staff in his eyes was heavily rejected with force which Agbowu could not withstand.
