The video showing Oba Rilwan Akiolu of Lagos snubbing the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has continued to generate controversy, arguments and counter-arguments. Now it has generated a hilarious thread on social media platform, Twitter.
While many have condemned Oba Akiolu, NAIJ.com earlier reported that the incident might not be what it looks like, as some research proves that he has some problems with his sight.
