A pro-Yoruba group, Oodua Youth Assembly (OYA), has slammed the Special Adviser to Governor Sanwo-Olu and former Lagos APC spokesman, Mr Joe Igbokwe, over his recent comments on social media against the Mayegun Aare Ona Kankanfo of Yorubaland and Coordinator, Progressive Lawyers for Osinbajo (PLO), Dr Kayode Ajulo.
The group said it is inappropriate for Igbokwe to have threatened Ajulo who is a holder of one of the highest Yoruba titles on Yoruba soil.

It said such an act could cause inter-tribal differences.
This is according to a statement made available to the press by the spokesperson of the group, Adeola Moronfolu Makanjuola, on Tuesday, in Lagos.
Igbokwe had in a thread of Facebook posts reacted to a Channels Television’s programme, Politics Today, interview of Ajulo, saying the lawyer mocked President Muhammadu Buhari and former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Makanjuola said the group could not overlook many mixed reactions Igbokwe’s statements have generated within different political commentators who are loyal to the two parties from Yoruba and Igbo tribes respectfully.
The group said it would not tolerate any action that could affect the peace and tranquillity of the southwest.
It said that letters would be delivered to the Lagos State Government and Ohanaeze Ndigbo on the matter to avoid a repeat of such issue in future.
