Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, is at the verge of dethronement, one of his toughest times on the throne as his people have not only turned against him but also agitate for his immediate dethronement over various allegations.
In a letter to the Osun State Government dated June 17, 2020, the Association of Iwoland Indigenes in Diaspora through their lawyer named Peter Adeosun, raised a number of allegations against the monarch, calling for his dethronement for gross negligence of office.
They said Oba Akanbi’s attitude did not march a person of his calibre as he always go around with heavily armed thugs, miscreants and hoodlums to, intimidate, molest and attack persons whom he perceives as enemies.
In an official documents seen by NairaGists on Wednesday, it state that indeed Oba Akanbi was deported from the US to Nigeria in 1999 after his conviction for aggravated felony – an offence that carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000 or both.
Oba Akanbi again tried to gain entry into America through Peace Bridge land crossing border from Canada but was arrested on March 11, 2011 after using the name Adewale Akanbi with June 21, 1967 as his date of birth.
He was subsequently held and committed to prison custody until December 19, 2011 when he was deported to Canada where he has a resident permit.
“On about March 11, 2011, in the Western District of New York, the defendant, Segun Adewale Adeonigbagbe aka Prince Adewale Akanbi, an alien who had previously been deported and removed from the United States on or about May 18, 1999, subsequent to a conviction for commission of an aggravated felony, did enter, attempt to enter and was voluntarily present and found in the United States without having first obtained the express consent of the Attorney-General of the United States or his successor, the Secretary for Homeland Security, to reapply for admission to the United States.
