Just recently, it was reported that a Germany based Nigerian man, Eddy Murphy Idahosa, was banished from Edo state over a video he posted on Facebook a while ago attacking and criticising the Oba of Benin, Ewuare II.
In the video posted by Murphy, he was seen blaming the Oba of Benin for the high rate of trafficking among girls in the Benin kingdom.
He returned home recently and was taken to the Oba’s palace where he was declared an enemy of the Oba and then banished from the kingdom.
The incident which was trailed by mixed reactions from Benin people – drew sympathy for Murphy Idahosa with some condemning the banishment in this modern age while some argued that the accused deserved what he got because he has been stepping on the toes of personalities in the kingdom.
Murphy Idahosa was accused of claiming that one Bob Isua’s wife allegedly slept with her step son about a year ago which sparked outrage from Benin residents at that time with many cursing him (Murphy) over the allegation.
The woman herself didn’t take the case lightly as she swore for him with charms and fetish items in public before the latest incident of his banishment.
