Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, The Ooni of Ife in an interview with BBC Yoruba revealed what President Buhari told him during their meeting early this year.
He said he advised Igboho on his actions based on the meeting held but he choose to listen to the wrong advisers.
He added that rather than listen, Igboho insulted the traditional rulers advising him.
The monarch made the revelation in an interview with BBC Yoruba.
The Ooni of Ife said: “Many people advised him wrongly. He listened to them. He started abusing everyone, including monarchs.
“After I left President Buhari’s place, I called on monarchs and elders of Yoruba land for a meeting to advise Igboho to exercise patience but he got carried away by the praises of those who were not even solidly behind him.
“He hurled so many bad words but he is still our son. God owns forgiveness. We’ve forgiven him. If he had listened, he wouldn’t have found himself in his current travail.”
Igboho is currently locked up in Benin Republic
