A video, currently trending on Social Media, has shown how a chief in Benin, identified as Dr. Oguigo, was publicly humiliated after a suspected trial by ordeal. He was reportedly labelled an enemy of Benin land for not paying homage to the Oba of Benin, His Royal Majesty, Oba Ewuare II.
Facebook user, Chuks Mgborie-Chukwu, who shared the clip on his timeline, said a curse was placed on the chief two days ago at the Oba of Benin Palace. The chief was said to be also ostracised the day the decree was made.
The video showed how the elderly chief, who was stripped to his trousers, pleaded for mercy as he was assaulted and tossed out of the palace, with armed policemen, who were supposed to enforce the law, watching helplessly.
