The traditional ruler of Egbema Kingdom in Delta and Edo states, HRM Sir, King Oro E. Tiemo, Bini Pere III, the Agadagba of Egbema Kingdom has returned to Ajakurama, his ancestral home after 30 years of conflicts.
The monarch who made this known while delivering an address during a reconciliation ceremony of Egbema communities, said he was delighted by the epoch-making gathering which marks the attainment of the long sought-after peace in Egbema kingdom.
He said, “It is almost thirty years ago that I left this ancient town of Ajakurama where I was installed and crowned as Bini Pere III, the Agadagba of the great Egbema Kingdom. I blame this long period of my absence on the judicial system in the country; which made the case I had with my late younger brother over the kingship lasted till about end of 2016, and there were still moves to take the case to the Supreme Court but thank God the matter has come to an end”.
According to the monarch, the creation of Delta state from the defunct Bendel state also necessitated that he had to temporarily move to Ogbudugbudu in Delta state for reasons best known to the people of the kingdom.
“It is historic that I have now returned to Ajakurama, my ancestral home and the entire people of Egbema kingdom are in jubilant mood that their king is back home. I and my chiefs and the entire people of Egbema Kingdom are happy. May the good name of our Lord our God be exalted”, he added.
