Stop threatening me, traditional ruler tells Anenih
The Onojie of Opoji and Vice Chairman of Edo State Council of Traditional Rulers and Chiefs, His Royal Highness (HRH) Ehidiamen Aidonojie I, has told former Chairman of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Tony Anenih, to stop threatening him.
The royal father said it was an abomination for an Edo chief to insult or threaten a monarch.
He said his sin was “because I told the world that Esan royal fathers never endorsed Ize-Iyamu”, the PDP governorship candidate.
The Onojie of Opoji told reporters that he had asked his lawyers to prepare a petition to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) and Police Commissioner Chris Ezike on the matter.
He said: “He (Anenih) called me with his glo line, shouting at me that Your Highness I am disappointed in you. I asked him what I have done, he was shouting that what has (Governor Adams) Oshiomhole done for me in my life and I told him to stop insulting me, that even if he is Anenih, that I am a traditional ruler for Christ’s sake.
