Rilwan Akiolu, the Oba of Lagos, is under intense criticism from Yorubas for publicly embarrassing Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II, the Ooni of Ife, at the World Conference of Banking Institutes hosted by the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN) recently.

The video of the incident has gone viral. It shows the Oba of Lagos waving off the Ooni of Ife as the later made an attempt to greet the former.

According to the hierarchy of traditional rulers in Yoruba land, the Ooni of Ife is a first class monarch while the Oba of Lagos is a 2nd class monarch.

A number of Yorubas and other Nigerians have taken to social media to express outrage over this gesture by the monarch from Lagos.

Some hilarious.
