Edo Govt Denies Rumors of Court Case Against Oba Ewuare II

Edo State, Nigeria 


In the midst of swirling rumors on social media suggesting legal action against His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, the Oba of Benin, the Edo State Government has unequivocally refuted such claims, labeling them as the machinations of detractors.

In a press statement by Crusoe Osagie, the Special Adviser on Media Projects, made available to Truth Live News on Thursday, the State Government clarified that it stands as a defendant in the referenced matter, debunking any notion of initiating legal proceedings against the revered monarch.

The statement reads;

“The rumour making the rounds on social media of an impending court case is the handiwork of enemies of the State and should be disregarded.

“As a matter of fact, in the matter being referenced by the purveyors of the fake news, Edo State Government is a defendant, which means the State government is being sued.

“The State Government maintains a cordial relationship with the Royal Palace and holds the Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, Ogidigan, in high esteem.

“The rumour is fabricated, fake and should be discountenanced in its entirety.

“It is election season again and fifth columnists are at work.

“The State Government is committed to sustaining a harmonious relationship with all stakeholders in the State and will always work to ensure cordial relations with the all critical institutions in society as part of its mandate to maintain a stable environment for the growth and progress of the State”.
