announced that he was indisposed
and as such would not engage in any
public engagement for the time

A statement signed by Secretary,
Benin Traditional Council, Mr. Frank
Irabor in Benin Monday said, “it is
hereby announced for the
information of the general public
that in the Palace parlance,
“Uhunmwun ve Ekpen vb’ Ato”,
meaning the “the Leopard is ill in the
Savannah bush”
“The explanation is that Omo N’Oba
N’Edo , Uku Akpolokpolo, Erediauwa ,
CFR, Oba of Benin is indisposed”

He added that public engagements
including courtesy visits, hearing of
complaints from individuals, families
and communities, and in particular
complaints over inheritance and
land disputes, are therefore
suspended until further notice.

The Palace directed all Benin Palace
Chiefs and functionaries to note that
their routine traditional duties
continue as usual.
