Oba of Lagos, Oba Akiolu Ridwan on the 25th of April 2017 snubbed Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Oguwusi \’Ojaja II\’ at a public function after the Ooni tried to greet the Oba of Lagos who was already seated before he stormed the event.
According to an insider who gave hints on the saga that has brought meltdown on social media, Oba Akiolu snubbed the Ooni because he didn\’t get an invite/honor to travel to London for the commonwealth event.
The source revealed the Ooni is very respectful and most of the times makes his plans known to other Yoruba monarch, the Ooni had made a call to Oba Ridwan telling him about his trip to London after getting an invite from the commonwealth before Oba Ridwan felt bad about not getting an invite as well.
The Ooni however tried getting Oba of Lagos an invite as well but he declined. Their discussion was heated, and Oba Akiolu insisted that the Ooni should boycott the London event slated for March 13 and 14, although the Ooni didn\’t boycott the event as expected. The phone call however did not end on a happy note.
This may have been the caused for the viral embarrassment from Oba Akiolu to the Ooni of Ife. What do you think? Is this enough for the Oba of Lagos to snubbed the greatest Yoruba monarch at a public function?
