Oct 31, 2016 – Royal Oppression: See How Edo Monarch Forced The Woman He Assaulted To Beg Him

The elderly Benin woman who was reportedly assaulted by the Onojie of Uromi in Esan North-East Local Government Area of Edo State, Mrs. Betty Okoebor, on Sunday begged the monarch for forgiveness.

The traditional ruler and Ojuromi of Uromi, His Royal Highness, Anslem Aidenojie II, had been suspended for seven days by the state executive council for allegedly attacking the woman and causing her “bodily harm,” among other alleged offences.

But the victim, Okoebor, who knelt before the monarch at his residence in Benin, in the presence of some Uromi elders, said that her plea became necessary as it was not customary for a traditional ruler to seek forgiveness from his subjects.

The woman, who was accompanied by some of her relatives, noted that her decision to seek for forgiveness was based on the fact the Ojuromi remained her royal father.

  1. THIS IS one of the reasons why I love the Igbo culture. Igbo ama eze literally means that the Igbos do not know thier king, not that they don’t respect traditional rulers, but this base level of oppression is never heard. Come to think of it, does the woman’s life depend on the arrogant chief?

  2. exactly royal oppression, so now the king is happy that the woman knelt down and begged him, the question who is sure if the apology comes from the woman’s deep heart? this why the king is a fool. the woma will go out there and still raise curses on him. you can only see all this rubbish in Edo, Yoruba,Hausa and some fe other tribes in Nigeria.

  3. Great indeed…she just showed a good character….even bible and I bliv quran support that we shud respect our leaders…even she’s d one offended she still beg her king…
