In an interview with PREMIUM TIMES, Mr Ogunwusi, who talked through his representative, Moses Olafare, said the palace was not prepared to engage Mr Adeyemo formally on the matter but the issue of the threats of violence against the ruler would be attended to at the appropriate time
Mr Adeyemo, while participating in a town hall meeting on Wednesday morning with Nigerians in the diaspora, assaulted some South-west leaders including the previous Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu; Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, and traditional rulers including the Oluwo of Iwo, Abdulrasheed Akanbi, and the Ooni.
He blamed the Ooni for "collecting dollars from President Muhammadu Buhari when he visited the Presidential Villa as of late" and condemned the ruler's statement while speaking to the media at the Villa
Sunday Igboho called the Yoruba leaders lily-livered and called them Fulani slaves.
He likewise promised to waylay, open fire on them or visit and vandalize their properties.
The ruler said no reasonable Yoruba sons or daughters would talk in such a way as Mr Adeyemo has spoken, saying his direct conduct and altitudes cast question on his actual goal in his "self-saddled duty of protecting the Yorubas."
The Ooni's representative, Mr Olafare, said Mr Adeyemo was taking the law into his hand and that he ought not accept that he is greater than the Authorities
He said; "We have not said anything on the matter and the matter doesn't actually sound good to us. In the event that someone who called himself a freedom fighter could be talking rubish about the Ooni who is undeniably a spiritual head of a race, at that point one should puzzle over whether the individual has been representing us truly.
