This could be the real reason Oba of Lagos snubbed Ooni of Ife (See Photos)

On April 25, 2017, a video which showed Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Aremu Akiolu humiliating the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi at a public function surfaced online. The video which lasted for 27 seconds showed the Ooni of Ife arriving the venue of an event.

 He exchanged plesantries with the Obi of Onitsha Igwe Alfred Achebe. However, when he attempted to greet Oba Akiolu who was seated next to the Igbo king, he was rebuffed. However, some research done by Onyema Dike of Sabinews has revealed that the Oba of Lagos, might have not done it knowingly.

Apparently, the Oba of Lagos is visually impaired and may not have realised who had come to greet him especially as the person seemed to genuflect. To him, anyone bowing for him must be a subject.

This is based on a story published on September, 2, 2016 by The Nation, where the Oba acknowledged his visual impairment, stating that he had been suffering from Glaucoma for 21 years.

The story reads in part:

Wait... Corps members spend over N1500 to amend their Khaki in camp?

So, I just came across a post on @nigeriancorpers on Instagram asking corpers how much they spent amending their NYSC uniform in camp, and the answers are surprising.

To think that NYSC usually ask them to fill in the their sizes before camp. What's the essence of asking if they won't provide the perfect sizes?

Most of them amended their uniforms for as high as N1500!!! See reactions below...

The palace of the Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has reacted to the humiliating treatment meted out to him by the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, at a public function in Lagos on Tuesday.

A video of the incident which went virile on social media showed the Lagos monarch refusing to shake hands with the Ooni, who arrived the venue of the event while guests were already seated.

The Ooni however, took the incident with calm and took his seat on the same roll where the traditional ruler was seated.

 A psychic trying to demonstrate that nothing could harm him ended up committing suicide in the presence of his spectators.

Theprit Palee, 25, had been performing a Thai traditional dance in front of spectators in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, Wednesday afternoon when the incident occurred.

Good morning Lailans. Please take note of these important changes

The last time I had to make a post like this was last year October, It's so unfortunate I have to make it again today to remind people they HAVE NO RIGHT to attack, abuse anybody on my platform nor anywhere on the internet.

To remind my readers that because you believe a particular thing is right doesn't mean no one else should have a contrary opinion. 

EVERYBODY is entitled to their opinion. If you must defend what you believe in, you are only allowed to use facts and words that EDIFY not curses and abusive words that DESTROY and spread hate!

As from today, again, guys, vile comments about anybody on this blog will never again see the light of the day.

From today onward, every comment that obviously defames anybody on this blog will be replaced by
