Traditional priests and priestesses of different deities, native doctors, Ewuaise palace society and different ancient traditional worshippers including Olokun and Ovia priestesses assembled some major streets in Benin city.
This was to cleanse the land and appease the gods following the increase in killings caused by armed robbery, cultism, kidnapping, which security agencies have not been able to curtail.
All these traditional worshippers, priests, priestess and native doctors converged at the ancient Urhokpota ground in red attires with different traditional instruments of war — Where they in unison laid disastrous curses on those committing evil in the kingdom.
Animals were slaughtered and traditional items were offered to ancestors.
Upon leaving Urhokpota Hall, the groups went to major areas such Sokponba Road, Kings Square, Murtala Mohammed Way, Igbesamwan Street, Akpakpava Road and ended at Emotan Shrine at Oba Market Road.
The Ewaise Group headed by Chief Eguezigbon and Chief Ohen-Egie of Ogbeson led the event.
