Unknown to many, controversial Yoruba King of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, was on Wednesday denied entry into the VIP area of the Eagle Square, Abuja.

The incident happened yesterday, June 12, a day declared as Democracy Day by the federal government.

The popular king was detained for 20 minutes by the security operatives in charge on the ground.

He was later allowed entrance into the VIP section after spending a few hours at the red carpet.

His dignity was restored when he was asked to sit on the same line with the Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and other first class monarchs and Emirs.
