Edo govt remains committed to peaceful resolution of misunderstanding between Oba’s Palace and certain Enigie

22 May 2024

The attention of the Edo State Government has been drawn to a public statement by lawyers reportedly acting on the instructions of the Benin Traditional Council, who raised issues relating to moves for the resolution of certain misunderstanding between the Council and some suspended Enigie in Edo South Senatorial District.

Despite the seemingly unhelpful position of these lawyers in the matter at hand, we want to emphasize unequivocally that the State Government reverently respects and has no issues with our Royal father, His Royal Majesty, Omo N'Oba N'Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, the Oba of Benin.

The State Government is committed to the peaceful resolution of the misunderstandings within our Royal institution as expressed in the earlier public comments regarding this matter.

The government will continue to explore the path of peace so as to resolve the misunderstandings and ensure the lingering court case is withdrawn and the matter is resolved amicably.

We encourage Edo people and the public to disregard all sensational statements being propagated for selfish political purposes.
