The Oba of Benin, His Royal Majesty, Oba Ewuare II ,has reacted to news reports concerning the embarrassing eviction of an alleged Benin chief from the Palace. In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Desmond Agbama, the Oba dismissed the claim that the man was a Benin chief.

He also said that though the elderly man was found with “abominable objects,” he (Oba) never ordered him to be manhandled. “For the avoidance of doubt, the man in question is not a chief in Benin Kingdom as has been ascribed to him.
Quote
“The man came to the palace in the company of those who had issues to resolve at the palace but he violated the norms of the Benin custom and tradition and was found carrying on his person abominable objects forbidden by Benin custom and tradition,” the statement read in part. “At no time did the Oba order the man to be manhandled.
“The persons who escorted the man out of the palace may have over-reacted themselves in their efforts to protect the tradition and culture of the Benin people and the sanctity of the palace. However, the Oba of Benin has ordered a full investigation into the incident,”‎
it added.
