UGHELLI—THE Ovie of Ozoro Kingdom in Isoko North local government area of Delta State, HRM Anthony Uvietobore Ogbogbo, Ibuka I, has described the Oba of Benin, HRM Omo N’ Oba N’ Edo, Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Erediauwa, as a great custodian of African traditional values and culture.

The monarch, who spoke during a courtesy visit to the Oba in his palace, weekend, said Ozoro kingdom was inspired by the historical evidence that made them part of the Benin kingdom, which existence dates back to the beginning of time.

He said:  “We declare with all sense of truthfulness, happiness and justification that Ozoro kingdom is a living branch in the primordial tree of Benin kingdom.

“It is also a thing of pride that Prince Eluega, the first Ovie (Enogie) of Ozoro came from the direct line of Usunnobun, the daughter of Prince Ighile who was the second son of great Benin’s  first founding king, Ogiso Igodo.”
