The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has revealed that he advised Sunday Igboho based on his meeting with Buhari earlier this year, but the Yoruba Nation agitator chose to listen to wrong advisers.
The Ooni of Ife said Igboho won’t be facing the current travail, if he had listened to the warning.
Oba Ogunwusi said that after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, he had advised Sunday Igboho over his actions, but rather than listen, Igboho insulted the traditional rulers advising him.
The monarch made the revelation in an interview with BBC Yoruba, saying;
“Many people advised him wrongly. He listened to them. He started abusing everyone, including monarchs.
“After I left President Buhari’s place, I called on monarchs and elders of Yoruba land for a meeting to advise Igboho to exercise patience but he got carried away by the praises of those who were not even solidly behind him.
“He hurled so many bad words but he is still our son. God owns forgiveness. We’ve forgiven him. If he had listened, he wouldn’t have found himself in his current travail.”
Igboho is currently locked up in Benin Republic after his attempt to travel to Germany was foiled
