The crisis between Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State and the Ojuromi of Uromi, Aselm O. Edenojie, Zaiki Edenojie II, deepened on Wednesday.
Oshiomhole, who will hand over to Mr. Godwin Obaseki on Saturday, deposed the monarch.
Edonojie is the monarch of the leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-South state, Chief Tony Anenih.
The crisis between the duo started during the campaign for the September 28 governorship election.
The monarch was accused of using his palace to campaign for the PDP governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
On Wednesday, Oshiomhole ordered the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Professor Julius Ihonvbere, through a letter, to announce the deposition.
The letter addressed him ordinarily as Mr Aselm O Edenojie.
The government statement, which was entitled: “Deposition from Office as Ojuromi of Uromi: Addendum”, reads:
“Please be informed that the initial Exco decision of 26th October, 2016 has been further affirmed. Consequently, you have been deposed as the Ojuromi of Uromi, pursuant to Section 28 (i & ii) of the Traditional Rulers & Chiefs Law, 1979.
“Kindly, therefore, disregard our letter of 4th November, 2016 on the subject “Re: Letter of Apology to Edo State Government.”
Oshiomhole also accused the monarch of assaulting a woman during the polls.
The monarch had since apologised.
The woman even went to the palace to reconcile with him.
