Reports have it that Akanbi attacked a fellow monarch on Friday during a peace meeting with Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of zone 11, Bashir Makama in Osogbo, Osun State.

The aim of the meeting was to resolve a land tussle among royal fathers within the Iwo axis.

However, in a statement from the palace, Oluwo stated that he was truly invited by the authority of the police to make peace on his stance curtailing excess land selling by monarchs under his domain.

According to him “At the peace meeting held at AIG office, Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa interrupted Oluwo while making his speech and called Oba Akanbi unprintable names, pointing his staff of office at Oluwo while attempt to stick the staff in his eyes was defended”.
