Nigerians criticize Oba of Lagos for disrespecting the Ooni of Ife

As reported earlier, there is a video clip going viral which shows Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, attempting to greet the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu at an event, with the latter who is seated barely acknowledging him.

Nigerians are not pleased with this and are criticizing the Oba of Lagos for disrespecting a more important Yoruba Monarch. See more tweets after the cut..

If this issue is not addressed by the yoruba elders, it is a big shame. Tinubu should tell the Oba of Lagos or Oba or Lagos Island to apologize..........rubbish

Pride and jealousy all written over the Oba of Lagos Island.Who God has blessed no man can disgrace.

What do you expect from a retired old school policeman... He's so damn jealous of the younger more enigmatic and more loved, more SENIOR monarch.

The evil dat men do will live with them.the oni of Ife ranks to the oba of Benin the oni of Ife is superior to the Eleko of Eko there is nothing like oba of lagos.Tinubu empowered dis retired police man to talk any how.what this is an abomination well wen rilwan akiolu said igbos should jump into d lagos wat did u people expect it's a pity

Oba of Lagos is a coward.He is jealous of the rising profile of the Ooni.What did he do when he was fenced from a function in Lagos bc the Sultan of Sokoto was already seated.Former Olopa must always have a complex.

The Oba needs to release a statement and publicly apologise.

His Imperial Majesty, the Ooni of Ife showed great restraint and composure. The Oba on the other hand, has embarrassed himself and his office.

There are both jokers. Royalty that spends more time in weddings and weekly parties and jetting off to London than ruling. Both Oba and so called Oni are jokers. Who takes them serious

Some Nigerians have short memories. This proud Oba is a former senior police officer and 'thug' who was known for pushing and shoving people in public. Who made him an Oba? The rightful Oba of Lagos should be Otunba Ojora but some top shots claimed that he was antisocial therefore they used their money and power to crown the ex policeman. Ojora was robbed of Lagos crown and this is the repercussion! Ojora, whatever will be yours, will be yours! A counterfeit is now embarrassing Lagosians.

Both of them should go chop big shit...who gives a fu@k? Oba for what ? For suffering people in their communities? Do they help grow the country ? Or help destroy it? They deserve no respect...stupid Yorubas and their bs

@Anonymous 9.16 you are a proper oloshi stupid somebody. Why are you attacking Linda. Your fadas,yes all of dem be werey.

He will soon be told where he belongs.Nonsense

Yoruba people say that if you go hunting bush meat with little children. You should not feel pained if they ask you to come hunt lizards with them. The way the Oni carries himself is not royal. There is no air of authority around him and he accepts every invitation he gets. A king must be unpredictable and decently inaccessible that's why he may not get respected in the community of kings

That guy no be oba of Lagos o! na oba of lagoon. hahaha!
