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:

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.
