The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, has set up a 28-member committee made up of  South-West personalities to look into the arrest of Igboho, and other issues relating to the South-West

The Coordinator of the committee, Mr. Akin Osuntokun, told The PUNCH that the meeting had been scheduled over a month ago but it coincided with the arrest of Igboho.

Osuntokun maintained that Igboho was not the reason for the setting up of the committee.

He said, “The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, inaugurated an advisory council comprising eminent Yoruba sons and daughters across the political spectrum. It is called the Ooni Caucus. The inauguration ceremony had been scheduled over a month ago and it is just an accident that it coincided with reports of Sunday Igboho’s arrest in Cotonou.
