A while back, the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, urged monarchs in Yoruba land to throw away the various idols in their palaces, saying God hates idolatry.
Speaking to Punch in a telephone interview with their correspondent in Osogbo, Oba Akanbi said he believed that the palaces of monarchs must be without idols, warning traditional rulers to shun idolatry, saying God would not help any town whose monarch worshipped other gods.
The Iwo monarch explained that people should be able to come to palaces and pray to God, saying this would not be until the monarchs rid their palaces of strange gods, which he said could not help them.
