A video which captures Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Aremu Akiolu, publicly ignoring the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi at a public function has gone viral on social media.

The video, which lasted for 27 seconds, shows the Ooni arriving the venue of an event, where he exchanged pleasantries with the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfred Achebe.

The Ooni’s attempt to greet the Oba Akiolu, who was seated next to the Obi of Onitsha, was rebuffed by the Lagos monarch who simply waved his hand and ignored the Ooni.

Meanwhile, some Nigerians have critisised the action.
