The attention of the Benin Traditional Council has been drawn to a planned solidarity gathering by the Coalition of Social cultural Organisations over the arrest and detention of the Secretary, Benin Traditional Council, Frank Irabor, and some chiefs in the Benin Kingdom.
While the Palace appreciates their concern, let it be known that the Palace of the Oba of Benin does not want such a gathering at this time and consequently directs that the organizers of the gathering halt the exercise immediately.
The issue in question that led to their arrest is being resolved.
In this regard, nobody or a group of persons should gather in the Oba of Benin Palace or anywhere in the Benin Kingdom on Monday 5th September 2022.
This announcement is important for all those concerned to comply, please.
The press release was signed by -(Iguobaro Osaigbovo)
Chief Press Secretary, Oba Palace, Benin City.
