Benin - Onojie of Opoji and the Vice Chairman, Edo State Council of Traditional Rulers and Chiefs Ehidiamen Aidonojie I, has raised alarm that he was being threatened by the former chairman, Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Tony Anenih, Vanguard reports.
The royal father said that Anenih is after his life because he told the world that Esan Royal fathers never endorsed Ize-Iyamu.
He stated that his lawyers were already preparing a petition to be submitted to the Inspector General of Police and the state Police Commissioner Chris Ezike, on the issue.
Anenih, however debunked the claims, saying that he has never killed anyone in his life time even when he was a young person, let alone now that he is 83.
Anenih, said “Onojie of Opoji was one of the traditional rulers who received our candidate and the PDP’s governorship candidate for the September election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
I will not kill an ordinary man, a big man, a traditional ruler or anybody. I will not even contemplate killing the Onojie of Opoji, why will I do that?”
The Royal father, had alleged that Anenih called him shouting his disappointment. “I asked him what I had done, he kept shouting ‘what has Oshiomhole (governor) done’ for me in my life and I told him to stop insulting me even if he is Anenih, that I am a traditional ruler for Christ sake according to Today.
