/> Oshiomhole suspends King for assaulting a woman, to remain suspended till he apologizes | Welcome to praizeblog

Traditional ruler of Uromi, His
Royal Highness Anselm Okojie,
Aidenojie II, the Onojie of
Uromi, has been suspended for
seven days by the Edo State
Government, for allegedly
assaulting a married woman
and traveling outside the
country without getting
appropriate permission.

A letter signed by Secretary to
the State Government, Prof
Julius Ihonvbere states: “I
write to convey to you, the
decision of the Edo State
Executive Council at its
meeting on the 26th October
2016, suspending you from
office for 7 days as Onojie of
Uromi. The suspension from
office was based on, among
other reasons:

‘Your unprovoked attack,
inflicting grievous bodily harm
on one Mrs Betty Okoebor on
September 28, 2016 in full
public glare to the
embarrassment of those
present and causing disgrace
to your otherwise esteemed

‘Your refusal, even after two
weeks, to respond to a query
issued by the appropriate
authority within the stipulated
72 hours demonstrating total
disregard and disrespect for
constituted authority; and

‘Travelling outside the country
without appropriate permission
in further demonstration of
your disregard for extant
regulations and laws.’

In the circumstances, the
State Executive Council has
arrived at a conclusion that
these and other acts of
misconduct of Your Royal
Highness, the Onojie of Uromi
are not only distasteful but
also unbecoming of a
traditional ruler of your status.

Consequently, within the
suspension period, you shall
cease to be recognized and
treated as traditional ruler.
Within the 7-day suspension
period, you are required to
tender unreserved apologies to
your victim, Mrs Betty Okoebor
and the Government of Edo
State. However, if within the
said 7 days no public apology
in tendered by your very self,
you will stand deposed as the
Onojie of Uromi.”
