The Osun state government broke its silence after the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, gave the beating of his life to another king, the Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa city, Oba Sikirulahi Akinropo, during a peace meeting last Friday at the office of the Assistant Police Inspector-General in charge of Zone 11, Bashir Makama.

The government has described the incident as regrettable.

That was expressed in a statement signed by the State's Information and Civic Orientation Commissioner, Mrs. Funke Egbemode, on Monday.

Egbemode said the State Traditional Council was looking into the matter, adding that traditional rulers ought to protect and preserve the sacredness of traditional institutions.

She said, “Situations, where royal fathers engage in a public display of temperament, do not edify the revered stools of our forebears.
“We believe in the dignity of traditional stools and sacredness of royalty. We will continue to preach peace among all our citizens and harmonious relationship among our traditional rulers.
“Government is aware that the State Council of Traditional Rulers has stepped into the matter and we are confident that the council will take appropriate steps to preserve peaceful coexistence among the Obas in the state. We do not want any crisis in any part of the State.”
