The Chief Priest of Holy Aruosa Cathedral in Benin city, Edo state, Ohen-Osa Harrison Okao, has opened up on how things are run in the church, where the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, is the spiritual head.

The priest revealed that Benin people prayed before the church was formed by Oba Esigie in 1517, by opening their hands and looking up to the sky with the mindset that God is up.

He said that the church does not do juju or pray through anybody but the members pray directly to God.

He also revealed that the presiding head of the church known as ‘Ohen Osa’ (God’s servant) is only picked by God but approved by the Oba of Benin himself.

The priest said that the Oba of Benin is the spiritual head (general overseer) of the Church. His deputy is the Benin Crown Prince. A special seat is reserved for the Oba at the church.

The priests dress like the Roman Catholic priests and usually wear red caps. The Holy Bible is also not used in the church but the book of Holy Arousa.

Praying to God through anybody is an insult against God.. It is like putting a face on God.. That was why ancient Egyptian used animal head to depit their gods..
