A Public affairs analyst and the News Reporters
Publisher, Prince Toyin Akingbade has described
Olowo-Eko, Oba Rilwan Aremu Akiolu, a former
Police AIG as a disgrace d to the human race and
need to be baptised to feel among the living souls.
The Public commentator who made the statement
through various social media handlers, said he was
disappointed in the recent attitude of the Oba of
Lagos, on his humiliation to Ooni of Ife, Oba
Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi at a public function.
Late Yesterday a 21 seconds video which went viral
on the social media, showing how Ooni of Ife was
seen arriving the venue of an event which had the
Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu II, sitting beside
Obi of Onisha.The Ooni walked over to greet the
obas including Obi of Onisha, but as soon as he
offered the Oba of Lagos his hands, Oba Akiolu
looked away and dismissed him with a wave of the
hand where the embarrassed monarch quietly
returned to his seat. That was a sign of total
madness and inhuman from Akiolu and need to be
baptised to feel among the living souls.
” This attitude is unbecoming of a king in Yoruba
My assessment on Oba Akiolu, his words , work ,
social status and behavioural excesses connotes
pure executive neurosis .
He is diplomatically rude and eccentric. What he
has done is royal nuisance and negligence .
Oba of Lagos should be historically be reminded
that he’s an ordinary white cap Chief without a
crown that doesn’t belong to any forms of royal
ranking in Yoruba Kingdom.
If it were to be in the days where culture and
tradition still takes its rightful place, all the obas no
matter your age should be on their feet whenever
the Ooni comes in . But the respectful King did not
even think about that but came to embrace the Oba
of Lagos on his seat, but all could do was to
show his usual shameful barrack attitudes.
