The woman who was reportedly assaulted by the Onojie of Uromi in Esan North-East Local Government Area of Edo State, Mrs. Betty Okoebor, on Sunday begged the monarch for forgiveness.

The traditional ruler and Ojuromi of Uromi, His Royal Highness, Anslem Aidenojie II, had been suspended for seven days by the state executive council for allegedly attacking the woman and causing her “bodily harm,” among other alleged offences.

But the victim, Okoebor, who knelt before the monarch at his residence in Benin, in the presence of some Uromi elders, said that her plea became necessary as it was not customary for a traditional ruler to seek forgiveness from his subjects.

The woman, who was accompanied by some of her relatives, noted that she was not coerced into taking the decision, which she said was based on the fact the Ojuromi remained her father.

“I have offended my father and have come to him for forgiveness. He has forgiven me and also prayed for me,” Okoebor added.

In his reaction, the Ojuromi of Uromi said that the woman had a “little disagreement” with the palace and for which she apologised.

Aidenojie II said, “Betty is my daughter; she had little disagreement with the palace and she has come to apologise.

“As a father, I have forgiven her and have also prayed for her to have good health, prosperity and success in every aspect of her endeavour.”
