To avert the anger of the gods, the Gbaramatu Traditional Council has kick-started moves to replace the stolen Egbesu golden sword, sign of their authority, by the military which invaded the Egbesu shrine in Oporoza.

To this end, Pere Oboro Gbaraun II, Aketekpe of Gbaramatu Kingdom, has warned that those who stole it should not bother about returning it.

The monarch spoke in Warri during a press briefing.

According to Chief Godspower Gbenekama, acting Secretary, Gbaramatu Traditional Council, who read the announcement, the gods are capable of avenging the stolen sword.

“The Gbaramatu Traditional Council of Chiefs wish to bring to the attention of the Kingdom, Nigerians and the international community the failed appeals, entreaties, and efforts geared towards the stolen golden royal sword, the symbol of authority of the Pere”, Gbenekama said..

“Since the unwanted aggression, the kingdom has lived without this well revered traditional symbol of authority.

“The Pere-In-Council after a careful evaluation of the incident and the attendant uncertainty the absence of the traditional symbol of authority have thrown the kingdom into hereby make the following pronouncements.

“That the time frame for a return of the stolen golden sword has elapsed.

“That no compensation, monetary or otherwise would be necessary as such cannot be accepted from the Nigerian state or the military.

“It’s our utmost believe that the stolen symbol of authority can and will avenge its desecration”.

Asked about the fate of the offenders should they retrace their step and return the sword, Gbenekama said, “That will not be necessary.”

He believed that calamity await all who perpetuated the act and was optimistic that they have decided to move on as a kingdom.
