The king made this statement while reacting to the reports of his encounter with Oba Dhikrulahi Akinropo, Agbowu of Ogbaagba, during a peace meeting in the state.

Recall that it was reported that Oba Akanbi had assaulted his fellow monarch at a peace meeting that was organised by an assistant inspector-general of police.

Reacting in a press conference at Osogbo, the state capital, Oluwo described the allegation as a desperate gang up against him.

The monarch said what happened between him and Akinropo was a “mere altercation and not physical combat”.

“I did not punch Agbowu of Ogbaagba, although there was an altercation that almost resulted to exchange of blows, that didn’t happen at all.

“I brought him and other Obas to the police to talk to them on the need to stop selling land that did not belong to them.

“I am fighting corruption in a traditional way. They are selling a hectares of land at the rate of N60,000, which I’m kicking against.

“I did not touch Agbowu of Ogbaagba, although he was aggressive and we almost had altercation but I did not punch him.”
