Oluwo says’ the founding father of Yoruba , Oduduwa was not an Igbo prince

The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi , has said the founding father of Yoruba , Oduduwa was not an Igbo prince as claimed by Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

Oluwo described the claim as false and misleading , calling for Igbo to research on the adventure of their own Odudunwa .

Ohanaeze Ndigbo in a statement , in reaction to the claim by the Ooni of Ife Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, that Igbo people originated from Ile- Ife , had claimed that Odudunwa (last – born ), later called Oduduwa was an Igbo prince who occupied Ile- Ife but the Yoruba regarded him as a god because he was very powerful and had magical powers .

But statement by the Oluwo’ s press secretary , Alli Ibraheem , reads , “The Yoruba nation was founded by Oduduwa .

He brought the first civilisation , which is the crown. Oduduwa demontrated an unequalled leadership .

He was shrewd , peculiar , unparalleled , unmatched , quintessential and different.

He served his people and became a rallying point for his services to humanity .

He gave us the best tradition , so respectful and obedient.

The Yoruba culture is rich, very beautiful and unblemished . It emanated from Oduduwa . ”

The monarch added , “ History is rich , necessary and must always be objective, because it is a foundation for the future .

Worldwide , Yorubaland is the source of every natural crown.

Our crowns are divinely ordained and sacred. It was brought by Oduduwa .

And we owe him a duty to defend everything about him ”
According to him , the fact that Odudunwa means last – born in the Igbo language does not make anyone bearing a similar name Igbo – born .

Oba Akanbi , however, pleaded with Nigerians to focus on unity.

He vowed to protect the rich heritage of Oduduwa .
