The Awujale of Ijebuland and Paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Dr. Sikiru Kayode Adetona, Ogbagba II has denied a report trending on the social media quoting the well revered king as having issued a statement on the current situation in some states especially as it affects the popular Yoruba activist Mr. Sunday Adeyemo also known as Igboho.
In a statement issued from the Awujale’ s palace in Ijebu Ode and signed by Tunde Oladunjoye, on behalf of Awujale denies that Kabiyesi Alayeluwa never issued such statement or comment on the issue.
“As you are all aware, Kabiyesi Alayeluwa is a a great patriot and at all times fully in support of Yoruba’s progress, development and aspirations. However, it should be clarified that the statement credited to him in the meantime is a “fake news.”
This statement added “that as a matter of principle nobody has the right to put anything in the news in our name without our knowledge and consent.”
