Throwback Pictures has surfaced showing how the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu greeted his friends and visitors in previous occasions.
In those pictures, the Lagos monarch was seen shaking hands and holding beards of his visitors against his culturally acclaimed way of greeting a monarch in Lagos.
This follows recent accusations of snubbing the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, at a public function in Lagos.
AIT News recalls that Oba Akiolu had said that his gesture was not ‘snub’ as being dubbed but that it was the culturally acclaimed way of greeting a monarch in Lagos.
