Listen to article

The traditional ruler of Oba-Ofemili Community in Awka-North Local Government Area of Anambra State, His Royal Highness Igwe Ezekwesili Madugbuna, has warmed his subjects not to distract Governor Charles Soludo, on his agenda of making Anambra a livable and prosperous State in Nigeria.

The monarch laid down the warning while reacting to an allegation level against him by some elders from his community, accusing him of high-handedness.

The elders in a press conference held in Awka yesterday which was monitored by The Eastern Updates, accused the Traditional ruler of using the State Vigilante Operatives and Fulani herders residing in the area to harass and intimidate them over piece of land which they said belonged to the people of Ibite-Olo, a neighbouring boundary community in Iziagwu local government area of Enugu State.

According to Chief Reuben Iloka, who spoke on behalf of the elders, explained that the land in equation was given to the people of Ibite-Olo community after a Court Judgement in 1945.

He alleged that the community has lost it peacefulness ever since the Monarch was given a certificate of recognition by the Anambra State Government under Chief Willie Obiano’s administration in 2016 and that between 2020 to 2023 December, the community has witnessed a burning of 27 houses, destruction of 3,000 bags of rice, 15 goats, generator sets, TV sets and other valuables belonging to those opposing his style of leadership in the town.

“We are peace-loving people. We can not afford to risk our people into war in this modern era, governor Soludo should come to our rescue, Chief Iloka pleaded.

Reacting further via telephone interview with our Correspondent, Igwe Madugbuna, called on the public to disregard the allegation, noting that it is a plan to dethrone him and that nothing of such has happened in the area.

He said the disturbances will not distract Governor Soludo’s development agenda for the good people of Oba-Ofemili community.

He noted that it was only Governor Soludo who discovered Oba-Ofemili community after many years of Oblivion.

He said Oba-Ofemili people would ever remain grateful to Governor Soludo for constructing the only road that connected Oba-Ofemili to other communities in Awka-North Local Government Area.

He recalled that prior to the construction of the said road, it took about 3 hours to access Oba-Ofemili from Amansea but since the construction of the road, it now takes just 25 minutes to connect his community from Amansea.
