Adams and Igboho on legal tussle

The Punch reported that Adams and Igboho threatened one other with legal action and called for public apologies.

The two leaders have spat over a supposed leaked telephone conversation between Adams and another person about Igboho.

In a letter dated March 25, 2024, issued to the Yoruba Generalissimo, Igboho’s lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, sought an urgent retraction of what he called a “scandalous, malicious, and defamatory statement” made against him.

He further requested that within 48 hours, Aare confess in two national periodicals that he wrongly charged Igboho or pay N10 billion in damages.

Adams stressed that his silence should not be interpreted as timidity in the face of purported character slander.

Adams stated that he was prepared to defend his hard-earned reputation and the office he represents.

He said that Igboho and Ayinde are unwilling to follow the Ooni of Ife’s lead in promoting peace.
