The people of Nkomoro Community in the Ezza North Council of Ebonyi have cautioned against the imposition of a traditional ruler within their locality.

Allegations have surfaced from the community members, accusing a select few of secretly plotting to impose a traditional ruler in violation of the community’s constitution.

They described this potential move as likely to trigger an avoidable conflict within the community.

This statement was part of a communique issued on Friday, signed by leaders Obiora Ezaka, Paulinus Okohu, and Romanus Igwe following a general meeting in the area.

They appealed to the concerned authorities for the right to choose their traditional leader according to the community’s constitutional guidelines.

‘We pledge our unalloyed support to Governor Francis Nwifuru and humbly request him not to relent in his instrument of good leadership, equity, and justice in protecting Ebonyi people in their struggle to ensure that intimidation, rascality and oppression are eradicated in our society, particularly in Nkomoro community.
