A video which captures Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Aremu Akiolu, who publicly snubs the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi at a public function has gone viral.
The video which lasted for 27 seconds, shows the Ooni of Ife arriving the venue of an event, where he exchanged plesantries with the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfred Achebe.
The Ooni’s attempt to greet Oba Akiolu who was seated next to the Obi of Onitsha was rebuffed by the Lagos monarch who simply waved his hand and ignored the Ooni.
Meanwhile, some Nigerians have critised the action.
