Prince Erediauwa will be installed the new Oba of Benin on October 20. Justice Olukayode Baba said his judgment would decide the case in the substantive appeal. The injunction was brought by one Rich Arisco-Osemwingie who proclaimed himself the Ogiamien of Utantan Kingdom in the Benin nation. Counsel to Arisco-Osemwengie and others, G.E. Oaikhena told the court that his quest to stop the installation of the new Oba was based on grounds that the re-enactment of the Ekiagbado Treaty which they claimed the Ogiemien family should be part of was not included in the programme of event for the Oba installation. But Counsels to the Governor of Edo State and others, Austin Alegeh (SAN), Chief Charles Uwensuyi Edosomwan (SAN) and Omoruyi Omonuwa (SAN) reminded the court of its earlier order that the judgment of the court would be obeyed and thus the application cannot be heard. Justice Baba agreed with Alegeh, saying the court would not grant any injunction on the matter. He urged the counsels to argue the main appeal brought before the court.]]>
