/> After initially suspending him for a year, Oshiomhole dethrones king who assaulted a lady | Welcome to praizeblog
 

The face off between the Edo
state government and the
monarch of Uromi town has
reached a climax, with his
deposition. The Adams
Oshiomhole government in a
terse statement today by
secretary Professor Julius
Ihonvbere announced
government’s decision.

Government in a letter today
conveyed its decision to the
deposed king, Ojuromi of
Uromi. The letter addressed
him ordinarily as Mr Aselm O
Edenojie. The government
statement which was entitled:
“Deposition from Office as
Ojuromi of Uromi: Addendum”,
read:

“Please be informed that the
initial Exco decision of 26th
October 2016 has been further
affirmed. Consequently, you
have been deposed as the
Ojuromi of Uromi pursuant to
Section 28 (i & ii) of the
Traditional Rulers & Chiefs
Law, 1979.

Kindly, therefore, disregard our
letter of 4th November 2016
on the subject “Re: Letter of
Apology to Edo State
Government.” The king’s
problem with the Oshiomhole
government began on 28
September, when he was
accused of assaulting a
woman during the polls.

He was also accused of
interfering in the conduct of
the election, leaving his palace
to canvass votes for the PDP
candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-
Iyamu. Government gave him a
query and ordered him to
apologise to the woman
assaulted.

The dethroned king ignored the
letter and even ignored the
government by travelling out of
his domain, overseas.
Government placed him on a 7-
day suspension and still
demanded a letter of apology
for snubbing government and
failing to apologise to the lady
assaulted.

On 4 November, the
government stepped up its
sanctions by suspending the
king, effective from Monday. In
addition, the monarch who
ruled the home town of Chief
Tony Anenih, the PDP leader
was stripped of all his rights
and privileges that he had
hitherto exercised.

He was also to lose a share of
the 5% revenue accruing to the
local council. And now the
sledge hammer: he is now to
lose his throne and become an
ordinary citizen: Mr. Aselm O
Edonije.
