A video which captures Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Aremu Akiolu humiliating the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi at a public function has gone viral.
The video which lasted for 27 seconds showed the Ooni of Ife arriving the venue of an event. He exchanged plesantries with the Obi of Onitsha Igwe Alfred Achebe. However, when he attempted to greet Oba Akiolu who was seated next to the Igbo king, he was rebuffed.
The Lagos monarch simply waved his hand and ignored the Ooni.
The embarrassed monarch displayed maturity by not losing his cool. He uietly returned to his seat to have a chat with Igwe Achebe.
It is not clear what prompted Oba Akiolu's reaction. Last year, both monarchs attended the birthday celebration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Abuja in the company of each other.

The incident, however, triggered anger among Nigerians on Twitter. They condemned Oba Akiolu's action as unbecoming of a Yoruba monarch.
