Cleric of the Winners Chapel Church, Pastor Blessed Ighiwi, has said
he was prepared to swear by Ogun-Oba to prove his innocence in
allegations levelled against him by some elders and traditional ruler
of Egba Community, HRH Palmer Omoregbe.

Blessed was the chairman of outlawed Community Development Association
(CDA) at Egba village and was arraigned before the Benin monarch for
continuing with CDA activities, despite the ban.
The cleric agreed to swear by Ogun-Oba when he appeared at the Ugha
Ozolua in the palace of Benin monarch, Oba Ewuare II.

He was also accused of suspending the traditional ruler, harassment of
community members who disagreed with him, sale of 10 plots of land
belonging to the Oba of Benin, highhandedness and lack of respect for
traditional authorities.

Omoregbe said: "'His Majesty', Blessed and his peoples have chased me
out of Egba. Whenever I called for a meeting, they refused to attend.
He has said CDA activities must continue, despite your announcement.

"I want you to restore my powers so that I can rule effectively."
Blessing said: "My Lord, I am innocent of all these accusations. I did
not suspend the Enogie. I do not have such powers to suspend a
traditional ruler. I brought peace to the community after 37 years of
"I do not know what happened to the Oba's land in our community. All
these things people are saying against me are lies. I am prepared to
swear by Ogun-Oba alongside all these people making allegations
against me."
