Osu Caste System To Be Abolished In December

 December 28, 2018, has been set as the da abolish the Osu caste system. The Osu for years has been a thorn in the flesh for many as they have continued to call for its abolishment. The Osu in Igbo land are usually discriminated against because of their dedication to deities. A statement released on Tuesday stated that there will be an event to mark the abolishment of Osu caste system in Igbo land. The event will take place on December 28 at the Nri Palace in Anambra State. The Regent of the ancient Nri Kingdom, Prince Ikenna Onyesoh, in the statement said it will be “spiritually suicidal” for anyone to continue with the obnoxious Osu practice after it had been abolished. He said, Come December 28, 2018,  more stringent spiritual implications will be pronounced from Ikpo Eze-Nri against such devaluation of mankind,  after an extensive spiritual abrogation exercise. Chairman of Eri Dynasty Traditional Rulers Forum, Eze Nkeli Nzekwe Kelly, said, according to the statement. The whole world needs to witness what is about to happen in our land on December 28, 2018, because such a thing has never happened before. The last time in history anything close to this happened was 200 years ago. And mark my words, after these abolition and atonement exercises, anybody who continues to uphold these practices will have themselves to blame.It’s time to end these once and for all and unite our people for the new era. It’s time for our estranged brothers and sisters who were sold into slavery to return home. We are more than ready to atone for the sins of our forefathers and reunite with our kits and kins in America, Europe, the Islands, and beyond. It’s time.Photo Credit: Getty
