BIAFRANS IN UBULU UKU HAVE DECIDED

BIAFRANS IN UBULU UKU HAVE DECIDED

By Chima Onyekachi
For Family Writers
HRM Obi Chukwuka Akaeze

I had personal interviews with veterans and made researches that made me to understand with facts that the idea of "Kingship" in Biafraland was copied and has somehow become a culture though that's not the reason for this article. I was intrigued when I found out that the peaceful people of Ubulu Uku decided to make a 17 year old teenager a KING. I was pleased and made it a mandate to visit Ubulu Uku town soon to see one of the youngest monarchs on the face of the earth, HRM Obi Chukwuka Akaeze. On February 18, 2016, the elders presented the young king to the Aniocha traditional council, the young king also paid a royal visit to Government House, Asaba. The governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa welcomed the king and promised the royal entourage every assistance. Okowa promised the king thus: ‘We want to encourage you to know that as you study, you have your people back home that you have to administer their culture and custom as their royal father.


The late father of the new king,Obi of Ubulu-Uku, Agbogidi Akaeze Ofulu was known to be a peaceful and loving monarch who was very much loved by his people. On January 5 2016, Ubulu-Uku town was thrown into confusion and tension when news filtered in that the late monarch has been kidnapped between Igbodo and Obior when his Toyota Land Cruiser jeep was intercepted by Fulani herdsmen as the driver slowed down to drive through a bad spot. The Fulani herdsmen numbering over six, captured the king and his driver and led them into the bush, and later demanded N100 million as ransom for his release. Few weeks later, Delta State police Public Relations Officer, DSP Celestina Kalu confirmed that the decomposing dead body of the monarch has been found. I cannot confirm if any ransom was paid but till date the Nigeria police has no lead on the perpetrators of that atrocity. The deceased king celebrated his tenth year on the throne a week before his gruesome murder.



The hilly town of Ubulu Uku which is also the largest and most populated town in Aniocha Local government area is known for her rich cultural practices and tradition. The Ubulu Uku women are well known for their weaving skills and their materials highly treasured home and abroad. Ubulu Uku town witnessed their new King been sworn in holding a bible during the coronation ceremony, though the new king is a firm believer in the culture and tradition of his people and will undergo further training on it. Before the coronation, some Ubulu Uku women steps in tradition way for about seven days running, invoking curses on the assassins.

I wish the new King a peaceful and prosperous reign and I implore his council of elders to guide him in truthfulness and wisdom. Biafrans have made history once again and is about to make more with the restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra.

  1. I'm suggesting the new king and entire Ubulu Uku, to ban Fulani herdsmen from entering into Ubulu Uku area till thy kingdom come.

  2. How many more will they take, how can fulani herdsmen take the life of a royal highness and its as if it is a mere bastard's life that was taken, if this had happened in the north innocent lives would have been destroyed with caution, it is even believed that it is even you kill a mad man that you will know that he has people, how much more a king? Pls for how long will we keep quit over the excesses of the lunatics empowered with ak47 raffles and much more sophisticated ammunition, even dasuki as retired head of security services was arrested for having ammunition which was considered illegal but this miscreants have them to their disposals and the government sees nothing wrong in that pls if Nigerians won't wake up Biafrans pls wake up!!!!!
