Oba of Benin denies video attacking President Buhari, Oshiomhole

Omo N’Oba Ewuare II Benin, Benin city Edo state has disowned a video currently trending on social media by one Eranomigho Edegbe which hurled invectives and insults on President Muhammadu Buhari just as he reiterated his deep love for the former chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

Tuesday June 30, Mr Frank Irabor, said the Secretary of Benin Traditional Council (BTC), the Oba vehemently denied authorizing the video by Edegbe, insisting that the said video and the contents therein were neither commissioned nor was it encouraged by the monarch.

He also  said that the “revered royal father condemned in the strongest terms the malicious attacks on the integrity of President Buhari and all other persons whom the video seeks to malign”.

Saying: “We wish to state unequivocally that our love for Mr. President is unparalleled as the relationship shared dates back to the days of His Royal Majesty, Oba Erediauwa (of blessed memory), and the immediate past Oba of Benin. This relationship was further strengthened when Mr President headed the President Trust Fund (PTF).”

The Omo N’Oba stated that Oshiomhole has always respected not just the traditional institutions in Edo State, but also the palace of the Oba of Benin.

 He said:

“We were happy to convene a send forth for him upon the expiration of his two terms, where his Royal Majesty used the ada (traditional sword) of the ancestors to pray for his protection, a thing quite rare in Benin custom. We are glad that the prayers said on him continue to be efficacious in all his endeavours.”
