Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi has advised Sunday Igboho to be wary of being manipulated by politicians.

Ooni in an interview with AriseTV on Wednesday said Igboho has done well being a “mouthpiece for the downtrodden”, and should allow those charged with the authority to do the right thing.

“Let us be very objective. He (Igboho) is being a mouthpiece for the downtrodden. He came up and everybody is listening now but my advice to him as a traditional ruler is that he needs to be very careful so that the politicians won’t hijack the whole motive from him,” he said.

“He has done well and we have already praised him but he shouldn’t take laws into his hands. We have the governor there, he is the chief security officer of the state and Mr President has invited him (Makinde). Let the right people that are being authorised to do what is right do it.

“He (Igboho) has done well and the world has heard him but everything should be done in moderation,” he added.
