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 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 land.
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 kingdoms.
If it were to be in the days where culture and tradition still take 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 he could do was to show his usual of shameful barrack attitudes. Akingbade said .”
