Why Oba Of Lagos Snubbed Ooni Of Ife


Oba of Lagos and Ooni of Ife


A video was recently released which captures Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Aremu Akiolu, snubbing the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi at a public function.

The now viral video which lasted for 27 seconds, saw the Ooni of Ife arriving the venue of an event, where he exchanged pleasantries with the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfred Achebe.

The Ooni’s attempt to greet Oba Akiolu who was seated next to the Obi of Onitsha was rebuffed by the Lagos monarch who simply waved his hand and ignored the Ooni.

Possible Reasons:

  • Oba Rilwan Aremu Akiolu of Lagos is highly revered and should not be seated before the arrival of Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi of Ife,
  • Or the Oba of Lagos considers it inproper to be in thesame public event with the Oba of Ife,
  • Or better still, Age may be a factor as Oba of Ife is relatively young(er)
  • Here is what readers and viewers had to say
