Edo State Government has rejected the apologies tendered by the Ojuromi of Uromi, Zaiki Edenojie II.
It rather suspended the Onojie of Uromi for one year for failing to apologise within the stipulated period to a woman, Ms Betty Okoeber, whom the Onojie allegedly assaulted on September 28, at a polling unit in Uromi.
The traditional ruler was earlier suspended for seven days and asked to apologise for disobeying constituted authorities and allegedly assaulting a woman.
Intervention by some political leaders of Uromi saw the alleged victim tendering apologies to the Onojie.
In his letter of apologies to the state government, the embattled Onojie said the victim has followed the custom and reconciled herself to the Throne as a daughter.
