Oba and the powerful wizard osopa-kahrha(the okp

At, 1804 obanosa was crowned the oba of benin

This is the history of obanosa known as prince osifo,

■While obanosa, was still prince osifo who was the son of oba akengbuda, prince osifo had a look alike both in age and appearance, osopa-kahrha who was a wizard, osopa-kahrha was the son of chief ahiye who was the esogban of benin he leaved at ugbague quarters present day benin city. Osopa-kahrha of the powerful benin witch coven, the witch coven was called eniwaren-ason elders of the night, oba akengbuda was the patron and his wife ose an esan queen who was the mother of osifo was the matron, this two dandies, prince osifo the ediaken n uselu and the osopa-kahrha of ugbague quarters in the city, hated each other for various reasons, osifo was said to have hated osopa-kahrha for his pretension attitudes his popularity, his guts his flamboyant lifestyle which he use to showoff, osopa-kahrha hated ediaken for hating his guts, and his flamboyant and trying to always restrict him from his various activities in the city of benin particularly trying every means to restrict his popularity in the city, benin city proved not to be large enough to accommodate these two people, prince osifo had promise several times when he got on an heated argument with osopa-kahrha that when he is made king he will have him killed, prince osifo was crowned obanosa the people nickname him obanosa(syking) he was known to be a very wise king, when he became the oba of benin, he disregarded the caution giving to him by his parents not to kill osopa-kahrha, he ordered for the death of osopa-kahrha the warlok
■The orders to kill the warlock osopa-kahrha by obanosa was inexcusable but perhaps understandable there was confirmed cases of osopa-kahrha proclaiming himself as oba-nason  the king of the night and he had  continued provocatively and demonstratively to match the oba of benin hehad further raised his stakes in his contest of the palace he had become the lover of the queen mother the iyoba ose the mother of obanosa in her palace at uselu, carrying out the orders to kill osopa-kahrha was matched streeet fighting with a great deal of bravado and dare devilry existed by both sides defeating osopa-kahrha troops became a mini civil war, in which it was said about five  thousand
Persons died the whole street adjoining ugbague
Quaters was permanently deserted the precursor of modern mission road in benin suffered the greatest despoliation and it became defunct  as earlier mentioned by Lt. R. O'shee map of benin city about 100yrs after the war showed no future for the then conquered mission road as the whole was still in ruins of the war,
After osopa-kahrha death one thing led to the other the monarch fell ill, and it was confirmed that his mother displeasure on osopa-kahrha death had caused the monarchs illness, and obanosa immediately ordered for her death, at her palace in uselu, using the same method used in displacing oba ohen from the throne, she was stoned to death, after her suuden death, quickly rushed to do her ritual burial rites so as not to get her soul lost in between life and death which afflicted lost soul
A few days after the death of his mother and successful completion of her burial rites, obanosa died vindicating osopa-kahrha warnings
Oba no bi ekhue, kevbe ekhu, ero gba yowa
Meaning a hand that opens door, goes along with the direction the door goes to
