Oba Ewuare II, The Oba of Benin, has warned Nigerian youths to shun money rituals. The warning was made by the monarch on Sunday during a thanksgiving service at the Holy Aruosa Cathedral in Benin to round off the 2018 annual Igue Festival Celebrations. He adviced that youths who cling to the illusion that they could become wealthy by killing people or stealing female underwear for ritual purposes, would no doubt face the consequence noting that the behaviour was abominable and alien to Benin customs and tradition. The monarch interceded for Nigeria and her leaders and urged politicians and youths to shun acts that could undermine free, fair and credible elections in 2019, warning the politicians to desist from violence and other acts inimical to the electoral process. The Oba cautioned youths not to allow themselves to be used as political thugs to cause mayhem during elections. The Oba was accompanied by his wives to the church service which was conducted in Edo language.
