The Deji of Akureland in Ondo State, Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi yesterday listed conditions for truce with the estranged Eze Ndigbo of Akure, Gregory Iloehike.
Ileohike was said to have disrespected the Oba, an allegation he denied and pleaded with the governor to help resolve the over one-week crisis. Hence during a meeting Governor Olusegun Mimiko had with the Oba, Eze Ndigbo of Akure and the Akure Council of Chiefs in Akure on the lingering crisis, Oba Aladelusi gave the conditions.
One of the condition was that the Igbo leader is forbidden from wearing any form of crown
Other conditions include that the Eze Ndigbo must apologize for his unruly behaviour in at least three national dailies and on air.
“That the Igbo leader must write a letter of apology to Oba Aladetoyinbo Ogunlade Aladelusi and the Deji-in-Council. That the title ‘Eze Ndigbo’ must be reviewed and replaced with a non-controversial honorary title and that the Igbo Leader must comply with all the earlier directives of the palace.’’
Dr Mimiko, however, apologized to the Oba on behalf of the Igbo Leader. The governor had earlier met with the Igbo leaders led by the embattled Eze Ndigbo, Iloehike at the governors office.
