Photos have surfaced of the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdul Rasheed Adewale Akanbi showing off his latest car, a yellow Lamborghini.
Oba Akanbi, who is a citizen of Canada, is currently in the North American country with his Jamaican wife, Chanel and their son, Oduduwa.
Oba Akanbi has recently been in the news amidst allegations that he was involved in financial scams, popularly known as ‘Yahoo-Yahoo.’
He said in January: “I have said I don’t want to comment on any case before the court. Is it reasonable that a first- class paramount Oba will be involved in yahoo yahoo? How much do I want to gain from it? Even if I am hungry, I have goodwill and influence, so I can never think of that. Oluwo Oke is using all these to seek cheap publicity. He and those using him are baffled by the kind of media attention I get. But this did not come by tarnishing people’s image. It is through service to the people.
“I brought medical equipment worth over N1.5bn for a hospital in Iwo land . I brought them from Canada. The equipment will be moved to the hospital as soon as the state government completes the renovation of the hospital. The governor has been of assistance in most of these programmes I am doing for my people.
“So, if I need money, can’t I sell part of this equipment instead of getting involved in fraud? It is all a calculated attempt to bring me down but they will fail.”
