Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife, has revealed what Buhari told him at their meeting in January of this year and how he counselled Sunday Igboho based on it, but the Yoruba Nation agitator opted to listen to the wrong advice.

Oba Ogunwusi said that after his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, he counselled Sunday Igboho on his activities.

He said that Igboho ignored the president’s admonition because of bad guidance. He went on to say that instead of listening, Igboho insulted the traditional authorities who were counselling him.

The Ooni of Ife said that if Igboho had heeded the warning, he would not be in this situation.

The monarch revealed this in an interview with BBC Yoruba.

According to the Ooni of Ife: “Many individuals gave him bad advice. He paid attention to them. He began insulting everyone, even kings.

“After I left President Buhari’s residence, I convened a conference of Yoruba monarchs and elders to tell Igboho to have patience, but he was carried away by the plaudits of people who were not even firmly behind him.

“He said so many hurtful things, yet he is still our kid. Forgiveness belongs to God. We’ve made amends with him. He would not be in his present predicament if he had listened.”

Igboho is presently imprisoned in the Benin Republic after his attempt to go to Germany was unsuccessful.
