Why Kom Fons respect Bobe Aboh as their Father

This issue came in when Foin Nsom took over the throne; Foin Nsom's mother was Ngwe who was the direct follower of Foin Yuh (I) both of them bobe Aboh's children. Foin Nsom did this for two reasons, in Kom a woman who does not get married and bears childrens, her father is automatically the children's own father. Ngwe was bobe Aboh's daughter and bore Nsom-Ngwe out of wedlock so Nsom-Ngwe automatically became bobe Aboh's child.

The second reason why he instituted that Fons should pay allegiance to Bobe Aboh as their father is that before he became Fon his age mates used to abuse him that he had no identified biological father. When he took over the throne sensing that his followers as Fons of Kom shall be having the same abuse, he then instituted that all Fons from him hence forth shall pay allegiance to bobe Aboh as their father. (The Fon's words were law).

Today if some of the Ghi Nafion-to-be have children with their divorced husbands and if these children become Fons tomorrow the chain between bobe Aboh and the Fons of Kom shall be dislodged. Nothing stops you a commoner from becoming a future BOFOIN.
