Dele Momodu addressed the issue on Instagram after noticing the snub rumours were spreading like wildfire. He posted an extensive video that showed the close relationship that developed between the governor and the Ooni of Ife when Gov. Adeleke turned back to shake hands.
Dele Momodu shared the video and noted that it is customary for kings to avoid shaking hands with other people.
