Press Release: Palace of the Oba of Benin Kingdom.

August 25, 2017

PRESS RELEASE 

 

The attention of the Palace has been drawn to the news making the rounds in social media about a man who was sent out of the Palace of the Oba of Benin on Thursday 17th August, 2017. 

 

 

For the avoidance of doubt, the man in question is not a Chief in Benin Kingdom as has been ascribed to him. 

 

The man came to the Palace in company of those who had issues to resolve at the Palace, but he violated the norms of the Benin custom and traditions and was found carrying on his person abominable objects forbidden by Benin custom 

and tradition. 

 

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-reached 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.

Chief Press Secretary 

To Oba of Benin
