Oba of Benin Sacks Prince of Holy Arousa Cathedral, Okao


Posted by JUSTOURS

The traditional ruler of Benin Kingdom His Royal Majesty, the Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II of Benin, and the traditional head of Holy Aruosa Cathedral of Benin have approved the removal of Mr. Harrison Okao as the Ohenosa of the Holy Arousa Cathedral of Benin following

the recommendation by the Joint Elders committee and some senior chiefs of the Oba’s Palace in Benin.

According to a statement by the Secretary, Benin Traditional Council, Frank Irabor, the recommendation and eventual acceptance by His Royal Majesty was predicated upon long-standing lingering breach and non-chalance over several years by Okao pertaining to the age-old custom and tradition regarding the continuous unauthorized officiating as Ohenosa at the Holy Aruosa Cathedral of Benin.

The statement also stated that the decision is expected to bring lasting peace, sanity and tranquility to the holy spiritual environment that is imperative in the Holy Aruosa Cathedral of Benin, which had hitherto been absent in the Holy Aruosa because of the non-compliance with tradition and custom by Harrison Okao over several years.

It added that all property, paraphernalia of office as Ohenosa and keys of the Cathedral should be handed over to Chief Esere, Head of IWEGUAE. It also restrained Okao from operating the bank accounts of the Cathedral with immediate effect.
