Oba of Benin is alive -Traditional council

There were wide spread reports online today that the Oba of Benin, Oba Erediuwa had passed on at age 92. The Benin Council of Chiefs through its secretary Frank Irabor has however debunked the reports. According to Mr Irabor, the rumors have been in circulation now for over a year
"They have been peddling that rumour for more than a year now, because the Oba has not been coming out. If there is anything like that, there is usually a statement from the palace or from the Benin Traditional Council. The fact that he has not been coming out, even when the President came last week, does not mean that there is anything like that‎. I don’t bother about rumours. I believe in getting information from the authentic source. For more than six months, they have been carrying the rumor” he told punch in a phone interview.
The absence of the Oba during the visits of President Jonathan and Gen Buhari during their campaign rallies in Edo state last week gave credence to the rumors of his death.

Omonzusi Okojie said...

If the Oba is really dead like they say, by tradition the news of his death can only be announced after 30 days.

Anonymous said...

Na wa oo!! Chai..,

Anonymous said...

If you know benin culture well, you would know that if an Oba dies, it takes 3mths before they announce it, this is to enable them put plans in place(at night-juju things and also get heads for the burial)....I heard the rumour since Jan, Oba don die abeg!
