The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has accepted the apology tendered by popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho.
He said Igboho, who apologised on Wednesday in a viral video for declaring the Ooni disappointed Yoruba nation for not speaking the truth on herdsmen killings in South West during a recent visit to President Muhammadu Buhari, is forgiven.
Director of Media and Public Affairs, Ooni’s palace, Mr Moses Olafare, told The Nation Sunday Igboho remains the son of Ooni.
He said: “He has forgiven him as he had tendered an apology via a video clip he produced via social media yesterday evening.
“Before tendering the apology, it was the Olugbon of Ile-igbon that first called and informed Arole Oodua on the phone that he had scolded Sunday on phone on his misdeeds and that, he would soon tender an apology to him on the matter. Sunday Igboho later released a video in which he tendered the apology.
“Even though the way and manner, Sunday behaved was sacrilege to the Oduduwa throne but he has already apologised and I can confirm that Arole Oodua forgiven him, because, there is no perfection in humanity. Sunday is a human being like a normal human being who could misbehave as well”.
He went on: “As the father of all, the Arole Oduduwa Olofin Adimula, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II remains his father who had even identified with him in the past two weeks he has begun with the struggle and he is still solidly behind him for the liberation of the Yorubas from criminal herdsmen who have adamantly terrorised our land.”

In my honest opinion, Igboho should be the one to forgive the Ooni.

I think this should serve as a lesson to those who think Yoruba society is feudal
Igboho wil do the same thing tomorrow dobale beg say sorry and Ooni willl forgive him again
We speak truth to our kings
and Igboho’s surname suggests he is a prince himself
Having said that
E je ki a le akata Fulani lo ki a fi abo fu adiye Odua
We are not all Odua
That is a conversation for another day
Odua “ARRIVED” in Ife from somewhere about 1000 years ago
Ife has been there for thousands of year
Odua was A KING and he has descendants who are ALL Omoba
NOT all YORUBA are omoba

What concerns us now is how to deal with the issue of open grazing, and the conquest ambition of the cattle herders.
We the masses have to get organised and stand up against a common enemy. The government and kings have proven unreliable. Many of them are even receiving payments and other benefits from the government and the herders.
If they care, they would have done something tangible since. But we can all see what they are doing and saying, directly and indirectly.
So, let’s rise up. Let us do anything in our capacity, such as Intellectual warfare, legal warfare, social media warfare, prayer warfare, Sunday Ighoho-ism, civil rallies, civil disobedience, and so on.
Rise up and do something.
God is on our side, and victory is ours.
Nice one from Ooni.. Kaade o pe Lori sir

This Ooni is really a GEM.
Igboho outburst against ooni was unnecessary, although he was speaking the truth, he should have constructively address him, although I noticed igboho was outraged by the visitation of ooni to the same senile vegetative irresponsive person that have kept quiet over the years, Buhari talking tough against herdsmen alone will have solve the problem even when the case was tender now it has metamorphose into deep hatred, anger and bitterness, I am not sure the doppelganger figurehead will complete his tenure because he is another word for disaster, Buhari will go down the drain of evil history.

No doubt igboho is doing absolutely selfless and great job for Yoruba race, but he needs a strong and well exposed image maker, and he shouldn’t be the one talking all the time, his comment that ooni collected ghana must go bags of money is too Childish and irrelevant that can water down the struggle. He should only and always talk as a courageous warrior.

We are all human and sometimes we will have emotional outburst out of pain,frustration and anger
but it takes wisdom to sholve pride and ego apart and realise that we have done wrong even if others who also share in our rage and frustration hails and praise us does dat make wat is wrong right?
Its only a bastard dat will look his father eye ball for eye ball and day go to hell
Sunday the wisdom of your ansestors is truly upon you
i wish my brother dede n kanu odogwu ne ri agwu can come back home to us and work for the good of Ala Igbo
no matter wat your wrongs and sins are you are our own blood
Chukwu Abiama gozie Ala Owerri
Chukwu Abiama gozie Ala Igbo

Well, I believe Sunday only respects the throne as a true Yoruba man.
That is understandable.
Now, drop your ego and get involved in the fight against those criminal cow slaves.
Forget that you’re the Ooni of ife, shiit could hit you anytime, as you also a HUMAN, and are not immune to mistakes.
You’re still obligated to protect the land, so, do so and stop feeling fly cos you’re on the throne.
Thank you, sir.
Ade apé lori.

gods have spoken. It amazes me that those beating the drums of war today, will be those crying genocide tomorrow.
He has made his point so it’s now left for oba either to repent or continue being a Fulani slave
