Royal Rumbles In Osogbo As Oluwo Beats Fellow Oba To Stupor In The Presence Of AIG Zone 11
…I Beat Oba Akinropo In Self Defense, Says Oluwo
Reminisces of the boxing legend Muhammed Ali and his boxing bout with Joe Frazier, Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdurasheed Akanbi on Friday threw caution to the wind as he beats the Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa, Oba Dikrulahi Akinropo to stupor in the presence of AIG Zone 11, Mr. Bashir Makama.
The AIG and Commissioner for local government in Osun State were Shocked to the marrow as the peace meeting convened to resolve the differences between Oluwo, who had earlier arrested some fellow obas within his domain a few weeks ago turned awry.
Sources at the peace meeting said as soon as they arrived for the meeting, an enraged Oluwo pounced on Oba Akinropo like Tyson Fury and dealt several blows on his face and head that blood was gushing out from the face and mouth of the Ogbaagbaa monarch.
Oba Akinropo who has since written his statement with the police has been transferred to Osun State General Hospital, Osogbo for urgent medical attention.
The AIG who was embarrassed with the unruly behavior of Oluwo may charge him to court as soon as possible so as to serve as a deterrent to others.
Meanwhile, Oluwo in statement issued said he beat the Ogbaagbaa monarch in self defense as he was the aggressor.
