Tension in Agbor kingdom as King reportedly marries white woman

According to Leadership Newspaper, the Agbor kingdom in Delta state is currently in a state of confusion after their 37 year old King, the Dein of Agbor, Benjamin Ikechukwu Kiagborekuzi I, secretly married a white woman, a decision said to be unacceptable by his people who expected him to marry an Agbor woman. 
The Dein who was crowned King when he was just two and a half years old in 1979 following the death of his father, had all his education abroad. He returned to Nigeria in 2001 after completing all his studies to assume the throne as king and has been ruling his kingdom since without a Queen.
Looks like he found love while he was abroad and decided to settle down with her. Continue...

A highly respected palace Chief, Alika (surname withheld) told Leadership newspapers that the ruling palace council had insisted that he gets married to a Nigerian woman from Agbor kingdom according to the tradition but appears their king called their bluff and married the white woman, a decision seen as a taboo.

When they crowned a child king, they should expect anything. Let them leave d guy alone let him live & enjoy his life. They should be glad he returned to take his position in his town. Linda, u've already named the first name of d chief u with held his surname so I don't think it matters. U can as well add his surname. Nwanyi ashiri.

I remember this guy! The two year old that was crowned King. It made worldwide news then and I remember I was in pry sch and people were talking about it everywhere!
So, he's all grown up now and married, good for him. When your child is to the manor born, you start teaching him the expectations of his position from the cradle not when he has graduated from sch abroad.
Agbor people, abeg una, make una take am as a sign of times. Abi are you racists?

nonso said...

Every traditional stool that is worth its onions have a culture. The British monarchy will never allow their king or queen to marry an African. Not in this lifetime. So we should expect same for our traditional stools. For those screaming civilization, what do you know? Do you think that civilization is only when it relates to Western culture? Our forefathers were civilised in their own way before the whites came and imposed their own "civilization" on us.

Our tradition MUST be respected and preserved. He cannot eat his cake and have it. If his people could respect the tradition and installed him their king at a tender age of 2+, it means they hold the tradition in very high esteem, he should not pay back with ingratitude and selfishness. He should obey the laws of the land. It is not backwardness, it is maintaining and preserving the culture. Motherhen

He should obey tradition or else, forfeit the throne. Why is it that after training our men & being rich & famous, they will go for white women e.g Mikel is for Russian lady, Osaze for white woman, Amokachie + so many of them. Why can't our black women enjoy their wealth? A Briton or any monarchy can never marry a black e.g William of England. Think about it. #############OTUoCHA

I am clear in my mind that if Harry or William chose to marry a black woman, they would do it even if with initial resistance. The point is it won't happen cos they probably have no black women friends. This guy on the other hand, was sent to the UK when he was young. Good education liberates ur mind and this is the result.

I really think it's that simple. You cabriolet eat your cake and have it. And for those saying the law should be changed to fit him, really are you for real? How can people be so quick to abandon their culture? Look traditions are what makes us who we are, we are not oyibo people that have no tradition, renege if you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything!

Nkechi J said...

One question to everyone saying he should be allowed will the British royal family let their sons or daughter marry a black person? You people need to understand the radio for this tradition amongst other this is that a full blogged Agbor citizen will always rule the land. If they start losing their culture now, by the next generation there will be no more Agbor becos the king who is suppose to be the traditional custodian doesn't even know the tradition. He needs to marry an Agbor wife or give up the throne, simple.

It's a problem because Prince Williams can never marry a black woman. No queen of England will ever marry a black man.

if custom demands he should marry from within, then he should Obey considering the future. This case is not a matter of racism or modern days.
on the other hand, if the white lady accepts to obey the norms and values of tradition even after death, then she should be allowed into the family.

...Obi Ikechukwu, i mean his dad during his era should have condemned a whole lot of people to death for breaking the laws of the land.
Obi Keagborekuzi shouldn't have done that if it's actually true though, this dude has abandoned his kingdom for almost a year now without caring about the well being of his people. A leader should rule right in order for his followers to live right.
It's not a matter of choice, we are talking about tradition here. The same tradition that earned him a page in the guinness book of record as the youngest crowned king in the world. I mean, to become a king is not just a mans making but a position assigned by God before his birth. So he should do the right thing and not desecrating the laws of the land....BIATCHHHHHHHH!!!!

What will you people do again, if the news is fake? Who gave you people the wrigth to be deciding for a whole Agbor monarhs. The tradiction of any clan, is for the people of that paticular clan.So if the king of Agbor choose to marry from Europ, it dose not concern any of you people, it is left for the people of Agbor kingdom alone. No good Agbor person will open his or mouth to talk against the Dein of Agbor. The King did not enter the throne by his power. He is there as a king by the power of God almighty. Who ever that is against him, is against God. The lord said in the book psalm 105 vs 15 touch not my anointed and my prophet do no harm. By thinking that you are insulting a whole monarh of Agbor, or the people of Agbor you are going against God. We have big respect for our Monarchs. SO YOU PEOPLE CAN SAY ANYTHING YOU LIKE. lONG LIVES FOR AGBOR PEOPLE, LONG LIFE FOR THE DEIN OF AGBOR KINGDOM
