The Oluwo of Iwo land, Oba AbdulRasheed Akanbi Telu 1, has been spotted along with other members of the Iwo community clearing the bushes in the city.
A video posted on Sunday via the monarch’s Instagram page showed him swinging a machete to clear a patch of land.
Oluwo explained that the exercise, which involved other prominent members of the community, was designed to “spread love” and promote togetherness among the people of Iwo.
“Love your own with passion. It’s not about King/Oluwo mowing grass; it’s about community love for the city!
“Main ruler of Iwoland, Oba AbdulRasheed Akanbi Telu 1; Chairman Iwo Supervisory Board, Professor Lai Olurode; and others doing community work this morning.
“Please don’t ask us why we weren’t using lawnmowers or workers. This brings our Iwo people together and spreads love,” the caption read.
