The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has disclosed that based on his encounter with Buhari earlier this year, he cautioned Sunday Igboho, but the Yoruba Nation agitator decided to listen to the wrong advice.
The Ooni of Ife stated that if Igboho had heeded the warning, he would not be in this situation.
Oba Ogunwusi stated that after seeing President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, he counseled Sunday Igboho on his activities, but instead of listening, Igboho insulted the traditional rulers who advised 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.
