The Benin monarch, Oba Ewuare II, on Friday forced the native doctors in Edo state to revoke the curses and oaths placed on the trafficked victims of human trafficking in the state. Many victims of human trafficking are usually made to swear to oaths and some of their body parts collected as collateral to make them pay back the money used to sponsor them.
After the revocation of curses, the Benin Monarch declared that the trafficked victims were now free from their traffickers and whatever oaths they were placed on. Oba Ewuare II also placed a curse in human traffickers and those aiding and abetting human trafficking in the state.
