EFIWE NEWS: Man Bags 4 Years Imprisonment For Sitting On Tor Tiv's Throne | READ


A 30-year-old man, Stephen Nyitse, who sat on the Tor Tiv’s throne shortly before the new king was installed on Saturday in Gboko, Benue State, has bagged four years imprisonment.

Nyitse was handed the sentence yesterday after being convicted by a Chief Magistrate Court presided over in Gboko by Justice P. S Chaha. The court held that the convict was guilty of trespass and impersonating the new Tor Tiv, V, Orchivirigh Professor James Ayatse.


According to the prosecution, the convict made confessional statement to the police during interrogation that he was under an evil spell to do what he did on that day.

The trial judge, Justice Chaha, described the action as a disgrace to the Tiv nation for which he deserved no mercy, and sentenced him to serve as deterrent to others.
