The Benin Solidarity Movement (BSM) worldwide is watching with keen interest the intention of some strange fellows who are planning to do a coronation of a so called Sultan Idriss Adanno as the Sultan of Shuwa Arab in Edo State.
We are expressing our distate for the planned coronation being that in Benin Kingdom we only recognise our father, His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare11, N’Ogidigan, as our Supreme Monarch; Any other claimant to royalty in the kingdom is inviting trouble.
BSM is quite aware that these new intruders into Benin Kingdom are the kingpins of kidnapping in that axis of Edo State (Uhunwode Local Government Area) and they are very well funded by international terrorist groups.
If they have been having a smooth ride in other parts of the country they have met a brick wall in Benin Kingdom where their plans to have a foothold will never see the light of day.
We are also using this opportunity to warn the Enogie of the area where the coronation is slated to hold (Eyaen) who is also the owner of the hotel (Rialto), Prince Osazuwa Aiwerioghene Iduriase to thread softly. In the recent past his controversial acts has been a source of concern.
He has been instrumental to making the management of the Coca Cola Bottling Company feel miserable with his attack on them which if he succeeds will mean that the company’s workers, a large chunk of who are Edolites, will become unemployed.
In this his latest move it will not be a strange story to hear that Iduriase has been bought over with a large amount of dollars by the self acclaimed Sultan Idriss Adanno and his cohorts.
BSM will want the security agencies to go on the trail of Iduriase and his co-travellers to confirm his link with the terrorists and kidnappers operating with impunity in that axis of Edo State where he is a Duke.
Furthermore, we once again call on the Oba of Benin Kingdom and the Edo State Government, to swiftly act on our observations and complaints, “for a stitch in time saves nine.”
