Gentlemen of the press, distinguished ladies and gentlemen, on behalf of the Egbema Traditional Council of Chiefs, and the ancient Egbema kingdom of Edo and Delta States, I welcome you to the ancient town of Ofunama, Egbema kingdom in Ovia South West Local Government Area of Edo State.

The good people of our dear kingdom just rose from an extra-ordinary general assembly of all sons and daughters of Egbema kingdom both at home and Diaspora at the ancient town of Ofunama.

That Egbema kingdom is one indivisible, indissoluble kingdom which straddles the defunct Bendel State (present day Edo and Delta States).

That the customs and traditions of Egbema kingdom are as gazetted in 1979 by the Military Administrator of the defunct Bendel State of Nigeria.

That for some time, Mr. Henry has been seen falsely parading himself as HRH, the Ojuaga 1 of Egbema Clan consisting of the seven (7) communities of Egbema Kingdom in Edo State.

That the said Mr. Henry Binidodougha falsely claims he was installed as a traditional ruler (Ojuaga 1) of the seven(7) communities in Egbema by the Council of Chiefs at his Benin residence.

That at no time was Mr. Henry Binidodougha who hails from Ofunama town enthroned/installed and or crowned as a traditional ruler with any title whatsoever in Egbema kingdom.

That the title of Ojuaga 1 is alien and repugnant to the customs and traditions of Egbema kingdom.

That the activities of Mr. Henry Binidodougha are a direct attack on the ancient customs and traditions as well as the territorial integrity of the Egbema people, particularly as it relates to the traditional stool of the kingdom.

The kingdom condemns in strong terms attempts by Mr. Henry Binidodougha and his cohorts to divide the kingdom and put its communities at war with each other.
