Osu caste declared null and void in Enugu Community

As the practice of Osu caste becomes nefarious and disadvantageous to humanity, the people of Owerre Nsukka Autonomous Community in Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State has deemed it necessary to declare it null and void in their community.

Reports state that this great decision was taken by the traditional ruler of the Enugu community, HRH, Dr. Felix Ugwu, the President General, Chief Daniel Atama, and other decision-making bodies in the community.

This move however is to create peace and development in the community and amongst its inhabitants.

In a brief speech by the traditional ruler, Dr. Ugwu, he reaffirmed that the practice was against the ordinance of God which enjoins everyone to be treated with love, adding that all human beings are equal before God, he urged other communities where it is still practiced to take same steps to abolish the system to ensure peace, harmony and development.

Dr. Ugwu said: “God created only one man and one woman. So, we are all descendants of Adam and Eve, no matter the skin color or race. So, where did the slave come from?

“To tell you how stupid the practice is, if one can go to a distant land to marry someone whose genealogy is not known, why should you discriminate against your brothers and sisters whom you know?

“Why are we discriminating and denying our fellow human beings their rights? It is too bad and satanic. Now that this practice has been abolished in my community, we can now inter-marry and take titles together.

“This will inflame love and community development amongst us,” the monarch said.
