If Sunday Igboho Had Listened To Me, He Wouldn’t Be In His Current Travails-Ooni Of Ife

Ooni

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has stated that Sunday Igboho wouldn’t have been in his current situation if he had listened to him.

Oba Ogunwusi stated that after his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in January this year,  he advised Igboho based on what he heard from the president, but the Yoruba Nation agitator chose to listen to wrong advisers.

He said Igboho failed to listen to the president’s warning due to wrong advice from people. He added that rather than listen, Igboho insulted the traditional rulers advising him.

The monarch made the revelation in an interview with BBC Yoruba.

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.”

Igboho is currently locked up in Benin Republic after his attempt to travel to Germany was foiled.
