Stephen Nyitse, the man who sat on the throne of the Tor Tiv before the monarch’s coronation has been banished from Tiv land by The Tiv Traditional Council, for desecration of the consecrated Tor Tiv stool.

Ter Kwande, HRH Chief Ambrose Pinne Iyortyer, who announced the banishment on behalf of the Tiv Traditional Council, TTC, said his punishment is with immediate effect.

He said that Stephen Nyitse shall under no circumstances step his foot on any part of Tiv land anywhere in the world.

TTC prohibited all sons and daughters of Tiv race from offering any form of assistance to the banished Nyitse.

Nyitse caused a stir at the JS Tarka Stadium, Gboko, Benue State, the venue of the coronation of Tor Tiv on Saturday, when he sat on the throne of the yet to be coronated Tor Tiv, Prof James Ayatse.

He claimed that he was directed by God to ‘cleanse’ the throne.

The strange behavior caused apprehension as security personnel immediately picked and whisked him off for interrogation to ascertain his mental state and whether his action had any sinister motive.
