Traditional leaders in Edo State reportedly take action against Homosexuality

Traditional rulers in Egor local government area of Edo State were reported to have placed curses on homosexuals and same-sex marriages in an effort to curb increase in the rate of homosexuality in the area.

The Ochie Egor, Chief Nathaniel Enyeula, who spoke to newsmen at Egor, said the traditional institution and police authorities are working round the clock to arrest the spread of the “menace” which was supposedly spreading fast. Enyeula, who is also Chairman of Egor Traditional Rulers Council, said the chiefs courted the services of the Priest of Owema, the highest deity in Egor, for traditional libations. He stated that the chiefs, aided by the police for protection, moved from one family to another between the hours of 12 midnight to 1am, according to their tradition, where their children have been involved in homosexuality but failed to renounce, pouring libation.

Well, hopefully, the divine intervention of the deity Owema and the mighty strength of their traditional rites will purge the local government of homosexuality.

    When I read news where homosexuality is used with such words like, “spreading”, I just sigh.

    I’m not surprised though at this news. Is it not Nigeria again!? ?????

    Eyah… when they are ready to take such ineffectual and comical actions against poverty, ignorance and disease in Nigeria, they will look less like living jokes.

    Lassa fever is on the move again and actually SPREADING. These people should not be like TB Joshua that was delivering people from dog and cat spirits but locked his church and ran away when Ebola came calling. Take the fight to the den of actual lions.

    Yet, the Fulani herdsmen can enter and slaughter them like chickens and they’d never thought of pouring libations.
    May their curses comes back to work on them in many folds. Ndi nzuzu!
