The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi has been suspended for six months by the Osun State Traditional Rulers Council.
Oba Akanbi was found guilty of misconduct by the committee set up by the Council of Obas to settle a rift between him and the Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa, Oba Dhikurulahi Akinropo.
The Oluwo was alleged to have punched Oba Akinropo during a peace meeting between him and other members of Iwo Traditional Rulers Council in the office of the Osun State Commissioner of Police.
The royal fathers at their emergency meeting held at the Osun State Government Secretariat, Abere, Osogbo later in the week which was presided over by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, arrived at the decision to suspend Oba Akanbi.
A committee headed by the Orangun of Ila, Oba Wahab Adedotun was also constituted to further investigate the matter.
However, while addressing journalists after the meeting, the Orangun of Ila said the decision was not because of the alleged fight between the Oluwo and Agbowu but due to his conduct towards other traditional rulers in Yorubaland, including the Alaafin of Oyo, the Alake of Egbaland and the Ooni of Ile-Ife,
