Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Us­man A. Bello, Benin

The Benin Tra­di­tional Coun­cil (BTC) yes­ter­day lifted the suspension on fu­neral cer­e­monies and burial rites in the King­dom.

The suspension was im­posed on burial and mourn­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in the Benin King­dom by the BTC in May 2016 to pave way for the burial cer­e­mony of Omo N’oba N’Edo, Oba Ere­di­auwa, whose demise was of­fi­cially an­nounced on 29th April 2016.

An­nounc­ing the suspension in Benin yes­ter­day, the Iyase of Benin, Chief Sam Igbe, said the Crown Prince, HRH Ehene­den Ere­di­auwa, was aware of the plight of the peo­ple who had en­dured the de­lay in their obli­ga­tion to bury their de­parted loved ones and had granted per­mis­sion for them to carry out their burial cer­e­monies.

The Iyase said in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the pend­ing corona­tion cer­e­monies of the Crown Prince would be dis­closed in due course.
