Nigeria: Family Writers Press Fact Finding Journey To Idumuje Ugboko Kingdom, Delta State

Nigeria: Family Writers Press Fact Finding Journey To Idumuje Ugboko Kingdom, Delta State

The Media was awash on 18th July 2020, with the news of the abduction of Obi Chukwunonso Nwoko of Idumuje Ugboko Kingdom in Aniocha North LGA of Delta state by the alleged Fulani herdsmen.

Other sources said it was actually an arrest allegedly perfected by the Nigeria police.

Owing to the conflicting news being peddled by many online media, Family Writers Press  International went to investigate and know what actually transpired. The journey took Family Writers correspondents to the Ancient Palace of Idumuje Ugboko kingdom.

Family Writers correspondents arrived Idumuje Ugboko around 2pm in the afternoon of 25th July, 2020. It was indeed an ancient Palace, with carvings done with red mud on it's walls. It left an aura of ancient beauty. The Palace security man on duty told Family Writers Press correspondents that the Palace have existed for more than 300 years.

It is also important to note that security has been beefed up in the Palace due to the incident that occurred on 18th July, 2020.

Vanguard publication of 23rd July, 2020 tittled "Recent Arrest of Prince Chukwunonso Nwoko – A Notch Closer To Peace And Justice In Idumuje-Ugboko" referred to Obi Chukwunonso Nwoko, as  a self-acclaimed monarch of Idumuje-Ugboko. This left the impression that the sacred throne of Idumuje Ugboko is under contention.

According to Vanguard "Impartial analysts have always maintained that the resolution of the seemingly intractable crises in Idumuje-Ugboko lies, not in the struggle for the throne, nor in the land acquisition for the Stars University but on the speedy execution of justice in the serial murder allegations hanging on the neck of Prince Chukwunonso Nwoko. The arrest of Prince Nonso Nwoko further reinforced the belief that the throne of Idumuje-Ugboko was illegally sequestered and that it's occupant defied the wishes of the people over whom he pretends to reign. Prince Nonso Nwoko’s interrogation for nine hours before he was released also demystified the assumed mystique of infallibility that surrounded the Idumuje-Ugboko Prince. As the sages say, when a god begins to overreach himself, it is necessary to show him the wood with which it was carved."

One thing that is very certain from the Vanguard publication of 23rd July 2020 is that the publication was sponsored against the Obi of Idumuje Ugboko. The publication stated the following;

* That Obi Chukwunonso Nwoko is not the rightful heir apparent to the throne of Idumuje Ugboko kingdom.

* That there is an ongoing Land dispute in Idumuje Ugboko kingdom.

* That a sponsored murder case is hanging on the neck of Obi Chukwunonso Nwoko.

Family Writers Press correspondents met the Obi of Idumuje Ugboko in high spirit in his Palace. Apart from the Royalty that is written all over him, he is also as simple and cheerful as ever. Family Writers Press wanted the Obi to react on the said vanguard publication of 23rd July 2020. But the Obi said that he is not ready to talk to the press yet.

When Family Writers correspondents pressed the Obi on the Vanguard publication where he was referred to as acclaimed traditional ruler of Idumuje Ugboko kingdom, he then had a change of mind and broke his silence.

Obi Chukwunonso Nwoke told Family Writers Press International that "there is no struggle for the Obiship in this Kingdom. It is hereditary. It is transfered from Father to the first son. The day my late father was buried, immediately I was installed. So there is no struggle for the throne of IDUMUJE UGBOKO Kingdom". He concluded.

On a lighter note he added. "Maybe Uwadiegwu wanted you people to see my face, and you have seen it". (Everyone in the reception laughed, including the Obi.)

When Family Writers Press correspondents left the Palace, they decided to make some inquiries as to understand what actually transpired from an independent source. Family Writers Press members met an Akwa Ibom man who told us he has been living and doing Business for a very long time in Idumuje Ugboko.

According to him, the case is between the Obi Chukwunonso Nwoko and the Billionaire Ned Nwoke. He said that the King was summoned by the police, which the King didn't honour resulting to the arrest by the police.
He told us that Obi Chukwunonso according to the tradition is the true heir apparent to the throne, that the issue is about land dispute between the people which Obi Chukwunonso Nwoko represents and Ned Nwoko.

And about the murder cases, our sources told Family Writers Press that the two factions involved fought each other resulting to some persons losing their lives.

Our Observations Concerning Idumuje Ugboko Saga are as follows;

**Following the Royal crises in Idumuje Ugboko, Aniocha North, Delta State it is clear that some highly powerful opposition are secretly picking up fights against the current Obi Of the Kingdom.

**Family Writers Press can authoritatively with all the forensic  evidences at hand say that the Obi Chukwunonso Nwoko is according to tradition, the rightful heir to the throne of Idumuje Ugboko kingdom.

**The accusations of murder levelled against the Obi although still under investigation by the Delta State Police but seemed sponsored by unknown individuals.

**The Obi Confirmed His Arrest Which appeared that the individuals that plotted his arrest are also indirectly gravitating towards his dethronement.

**In reactions from the residents of Idumuje Ugboko confirmed that the Obi is the people's choice despite some kind of intimidation emanating from a supposed opposition.

**Family Writers Press observed that the Community is calm, conducive and peaceful in looks after the desecration suffered by the throne of Idumuje Ugboko kingdom.

** That whether the Obi is being opposed because of land or throne, the fact remains he is being intimidated by some very rich and powerful individuals.

**From the look of things and from Prince Nonso Nwoko's speech during the interview, the Palace is under siege.

**According to the Security Guard who first attended to the Family Writers Press Correspondents who visited the Palace, He Said "Who Is That Man That Dropped you gentlemen over there?" And When We Replied He then added; "If He Is A Good Man He would have taken you both into the Palace".

**It appears that anyone who steps into the palace is taken to be a suspect following the critical situation surrounding the Kingdom and the throne.

** It is a case of money and political power against the tradition of the people.
