Humiliation of Oyo Obas: Obasanjo stripped off of traditional titles

The apex Yoruba Indigenous Organization, Igbimo Apapo Yoruba Lagbaye, has stripped off former President Olusegun Obasanjo of all the traditional titles bestowed on him by Yoruba monarchs.

This was contained in a letter signed by Aare Oladokun Hassan, President, Yoruba Council Worldwide, YCE, made available to newsmen.

Recall the group earlier gave Obasajo three days ultimatum to publicly apologise to the Obas over his unguided statement made in Iseyin last week.

Part of the statement reads: "We see your disrespectful statements at the commissioning of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology  (LAUTECH), Iseyin Campus, and had commanded kings from Oyo State to stand up and accord you respect (and subsequent defense in Premium Times); to the arrays of first class Royal Fathers and other leading Obas like toddlers of a village headmaster of Army General talking profusely at his foot soldiers in a most depressing, disparaging and disrespectful manner."

"We reiterate as the leading Vanguard voice for all Yoruba indigenous people globally, we have eternal duty to preserve the anesthetic distinct Omoluabi ethos, Royal Stools and ancestral customs and traditions of the Yoruba Obaship, precipitating our earlier demand for immediate apologies within three (3) days which you deliberately ignored blatantly."

"We shall further commence strict legal action at a court of competent jurisdiction for defamation and scandalous libel accordingly."

"Furthermore, we shall mobilize all market women, youths and leaders of thoughts for onward sanitization compliance to our declaration forthwith."
