In a statement signed by the state’s Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs Funke Egbemode, the government further noted that situations, where royal fathers engage in a public display of temperament, do not edify the revered stools of our forebears.

“We believe in the dignity of traditional stools and sacredness of royalty. We will continue to preach peace among all our citizens and harmonious relationship among our traditional rulers.

“Government is aware that the State Council of Traditional Rulers has stepped into the matter and we are confident that the council will take appropriate steps to preserve peaceful coexistence among the Obas in the state. We do not want any crisis in any part of the State,” the statement added.
