The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi has ordered the extinction of traditional Oro festival in the town.
Oba Akanbi also banned any form of sacrifice to appease god or deity in the town, declaring that anybody caught with sacrifice should be made to eat the materials.
The monarch pronounced the order in a viral video while speaking with some of his subjects.
Popularly called Telu, Oba Akanbi, in the video said, God is the only harbinger and sustenance of peace and tranquility; adding that “Only God can make Iwo peaceful; and He is the only one that can sustain tranquility in Iwo.
There should not be any Oro in Iwo. If any oro comes out, it should be arrested. If anybody place sacrifice on the ground, ask the person to eat it. We don’t want any form of sacrifice. No sacrifice can make the town peaceful,” the Oluwo said.
