The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has appealed to residents of Iwo to shun vandalism of private and public properties.
The monarch gave the charge on Saturday while lauding residents of Iwo for guarding the palace and the council secretariat against hoodlums’ attack.
He also condemned the attack on the Iwo Local Government secretariat saying said the people should respect human dignity and desist from vandalising public and private properties.
He said, “One who serves will be served. I run palliative on daily basis since my ascension as Oluwo.
“Just this morning, unconfirmed information reached the residents of Iwo that some hoodlums would attack the palace in search of COVID-19 palliative.
“The residents, without the palace knowledge, mounted roadblocks at every path connecting the palace. They waited to see that person born of human who would unleash terror on their heritage. Our palace is sacred.
“I appeal to us in the name of God, the crown and all our positive aspirations, to embrace peace. We are one big family. Let’s be peace-loving.”
