Edo State residents warned NOT to cook with fire this coming Sunday

The people of Benin kingdom in Edo state have been told to observe an unusual rite, which is not to cook  with any form of fire on Sunday, 5th of June. This is in honour of the late Oba Eradiauwa who passed away.

According to a press release signed by the secretary to the Benin Traditional Council, Mr Frank Irabor, the order is in accordance with Benin customs and traditions and is in continuation of the 15 days funeral rites of the late Oba.

All indigenes and non-indigenes based in Benin kingdom are reportedly expected to observe the Igberimwin rites of no cooking with fire.
Ummm how are people supposed to eat though? Is there a “cooking with fire” brigade that will go from house to house to make sure residents comply with this directive? I also hope NEPA plans to give the residents light the entire day so they can at least use their electric cookers?
