The Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II, has forgiven Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, over the viral video in which Igboho lambasted the monarch.

The media aide to Ooni, Moses Olafare, who made this known on Thursday,  said the monarch is “still solidly behind” Igboho’s move to drive “criminal herdsmen” away from the South-West.

Olafare explained that Ogunwusi was silent on Igboho’s allegations because “it is not in the style of the Ooni to make an official response on any matter that threatens the unity and peace of the country, especially as it affects the descendants of Oduduwa worldwide”.

The activist also accused the monarch of disappointing the Yoruba people when he visited the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), over the herdsmen crisis rocking the South-West region.

Ogunwusi had after meeting the President commended Igboho for speaking for the downtrodden but asked him not to take laws into his hands by allowing constituted authorities, including the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, to take charge and handle the security challenges in the state.

Igboho later apologized, saying that he was pained by the issue and his tongue was caught up in the moment.

Olafare also said Ooni was unperturbed by Igboho’s abusive and derogatory words against him.       

He said, “Sunday Igboho still remains a son to the Ooni. Baba has already forgiven him because he had tendered an apology via a video clip he produced via social media yesterday evening
