Oba Ewuare II, The Oba of Benin has warned Nigerian youths to stay away from money rituals. He spoke yesterday Sunday during a thanksgiving service at the Holy Aruosa Cathedral in Benin to round off the 2018 annual Igue festival celebrations in Edo state.
He said Nigerian youths who stick to the illusion that they could become wealthy by murdering people or stealing female underwear for ritual purposes would no doubt face the consequence in the future. He added that the behaviour was abominable and void to Benin customs and tradition.
The Nigerian monarch interceded for Nigeria and her leaders and urged politicians and youths to shun acts that could undermine free, fair and credible elections and also warned politicians to desist from violence and other acts inimical to the electoral process in 2019. He warned youths not to allow themselves to be used as political thugs to cause mayhem and crime during the forth coming general election.
