Sunday Igboho pleads for Ooni’s forgiveness


A day which started as a volcanic reaction seems to have flipped into the winter season after Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho asked for the forgiveness of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.

Igboho appeared to have disrespected the monarch alongside the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Oyo Governor, Seyi Makinde while ranting on a virtual Townhall meeting with Yoruba In Diaspora over the monarch’s visit to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

Igboho had labelled the Ooni an “animal”, stating that Tinubu and Makinde are “unfortunate” and “mad” respectively adding that they are slaves to the Fulanis.

However, in a recent interview with Isokan Omo Oodua TV, Igboho denied insulting the Ooni, despite viral video evidence stating otherwise.

Igboho who had stated earlier that he denied the Ooni’s invitation revealed that he has spoken with the monarch whom he described as a father to him.

“They said I insulted the Ooni of Ife. I and the monarch, as well as the Olugbon, have spoken on the phone,” he said.

He continued, “The Yoruba tradition doesn’t permit the insult of elders. But because I was pained by the issue, my tongue was caught up in the moment. I spoke according to how pained I was. It wasn’t the Ooni alone I directed my words at, I also did to other elders.
