At the weekend the feud between Benin monarch, Oba Erediauwa, and Esama of Benin, Chief Gabriel Igbinedion became alarming after the duo abandoned carnal strategy and weapons for spiritual weapons.

Accused of contravening the rules and regulations of the palace, in February 2008, Oba Erediauwa suspended Chief Igbinedon, the father of former Edo State Governor, Lucky Igbinedon, from participating in any function in the Oba’s palace.
Other serious issues have further separated them.

And last Friday, the Benin Traditional Council held a meeting at the palace of Oba Erediauwa, which was attended by all Benin chiefs, social organisations and religious leaders where they reiterated their allegiance to the Oba.

At the occasion that was used to create awareness among the Binis on the need to unite against any form of disrespect to the throne of the Oba Benin, a procession of people in red gown and displaying charms was held(pictured), and they were seen chanting awful incantation.

On Saturday Esama of Benin, Chief Gabriel Igbinedion took his turns to go spiritual when he received the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries,MFM, Dr Daniel Kolawale Olukoya in Okada at the dedication and unveiling of a campus chapter of the MFM building at Igbinedon University.
