The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has said that he had advised Sunday Igboho over his then actions but he refused to obey instructions. He said this after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
He said Igboho failed to listen to the president’s warning due to wrong advice from people.
The Ooni of Ife said Igboho won’t be facing all the mess he found himself, if he had listened to warning.
The monarch made the revelation in an interview with BBC Yoruba.
Ooni of Ife said rather than listen to the caution, Igboho insulted those traditional rulers who tried to talk to him.
He said: “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.”
