The proscribed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has heaped insults on the Oba of Benin, Oba Erediauwa I, saying he is more concerned about keeping his throne.
In a live broadcast on Facebook on 20 May 2020, he said the Oba of Benin does not care of the people he governs saying that he has never fought for them except for himself.
“Oba of Benin is more concerned about fighting for his seat than his people. Under him Benin City has been taken over by Fulanis. Benin is gone, I repeat Benin is gone and the Oba is just there.
He says Benin of gone, he says Muslims fundamentalists have taken over the ancient city.
He accused Governor Nasir El-Rufai of being the mastermind of the takeover of Benin City.
He said Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, is part of the plan and that the Oba of Benin cannot do anything about it.
He said Edo state has fallen to the Fulanis.
