Nov 6, 2016 – Edo King Onojie Of Uromi Suspended For One Year For Refusing To Apologise To Woman He Assaulted

Governor Oshiomhole Suspends Onojie Of Uromi For 1 Year For Refusing To Apologise To Woman He Disgraced At Voting Station In Uromi.

For disobeying the constituted authorities and refusing to apologise to one of his assault victims, the Onojie of Uromi has been suspended for one year by outgoing Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

The traditional ruler was earlier suspended for one week and asked to tender public apology to Miss Betty Okoeber, an elderly woman he verbally abused on the 28th of September 2016 at a polling ward in Uromi.

Instead of obeying instruction by tendering apology to his victim, the traditional ruler consulted with some political leaders in Uromi who forced the victim, Okoeber to tender apologies.

    THUMBS UP, OSHO! LEFT to some men, they would play God. True that royalty would not find it easy to apologize to a commoner, but there is a way that a sentient ruler can make ammends for his wrongs. Even though this man was commanded to apologize publicly, he could still appease that woman withou having to do all that. If I were him, I would have called that woman privately and made ammends with her: I would even compensate her with a generous gift. Afterwards I would, through the council of ttaditional rulers, prevail on the governor to forget the case. That way, I could still save my honour and a little ego. But to force the woman to apologize to him instead is the height of haughtiness and cockiness. He should be humiliated.

    If all the allegations level against him is true then he deserve to be suspended or to be permanently stripped of that position entirely.

    That is an abuse of power. Assaulting a woman publicly and organising a session or gathering that latter saw the woman apologizing to you. Such absurdity and excessive use of power should be denounced and condemned.

    Thank you very much Adams Oshiomole. Let him remain powerless for those time period so that he will work hard to correct his pride,arrogance and his reckless abuse of traditional privileges.
