PHOTOS: The Powerful Palace ‘JUJU’ used by Oba of Benin to lay curses

The Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare 11 on Friday placed a curse on Human traffickers in Edo state as well as native doctors who carry out oath of secrecy on victims, stating that the Gods of Benin will destroy those involved in the illegal trade.

The traditional Palace Juju ‘Ososomaye’ of Great Benin kingdom was reportedly brought out for the first time yesterday to face the sun in the presence of all Palace chiefs, native doctors and women leaders who witnessed the traditional occasion.





According to reports from some Bini people, the last time the ‘Ososomaye’ saw the sun was above 400 years ago, and if it sees the sun, it delivers on its assignment against the person and his generation. They said the last time it was deployed and brought out to see the sun was in the reign of Oba Ewuare 1.
