Edo Govt Opens Up As Anger Grows On Reported Suit Against Oba Of Benin

The Edo State Government today Thursday said it had no court matter with the Oba Ewuare II, the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo.

Tempers are flaring in Benin the state capital and on the internet as social media reports suggested a current court case initiated by the government against the revered traditional ruler.

However, the state government has described the reports as the handiwork of enemies of the state.

In a statement, the Special Adviser (Media Projects) to Governor Godwin Obaseki, Crusoe Osagie, rubbished the reports.

The statement read: “The Edo State Government has no case in court against our revered Royal Father, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, the Oba of Benin.

“The rumour making the rounds on social media of an impending court case is the handiwork of enemies of the State and should be disregarded.

“As a matter of fact, in the matter being referenced by the purveyors of the fake news, the Edo State Government is a defendant, which means the State government is being sued.

“The State Government maintains a cordial relationship with the Royal Palace and holds the Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, Ogidigan, in high esteem.”
