Police Arrest ‘Dethroned’ Monarch’s Aide As Fear Grips Anambra Community

In the hometown of former Anambra state governor Chris Ngige, there was evident panic following the police arrest of a local cabinet chief.

The detained chief is expected in court on Wednesday of next week. He is well-known for having backed the overthrown traditional ruler of Alor, Idemili South local government region.

Tension in the community has increased due to the recent construction.

Assault, threats to life, and violation of the state House of Assembly complex’s sanctity are among the allegations, according to the state police command.

The town’s union leadership and traditional stool have been at odds, causing constant unrest in the community.

The deposed monarch’s refusal to accept an invitation from the state House of Assembly’s committee on public petitions, along with those from other stakeholders.

The lawmakers were incensed by his actions and vowed to seek a bench warrant for him.

The deposed monarch was originally called on January 21, 2024, but he did not accept the invitation. As a result, he was granted a new date, February 22, to come before the committee.

The dethroned monarch, who was supposedly overthrown by the State High Court approximately 2 and half years ago, was still presenting himself as the traditional ruler of the Alor community, in defiance of the court’s ruling and directives, according to a purported appeal by one of the community’s High Chiefs.

The overthrown traditional monarch gave the state Assembly a written response to the petition outlining his own version of events prior to the meeting of the day.

One of the “dethroned monarch’s” chiefs raced to the petitioner after the sitting and attacked him.

This made it necessary for the legislator, Hon. Golden Iloh, of the Ihiala 1 Constituency, to close the Assembly entrance in order to notify the police, who moved swiftly to put an end to the disturbance.

Osita Igbonwa, the suspected attacker, was taken into custody at the police command’s “B” Division and subsequently released on bond.

The defendant is expected to appear in court on Wednesday of next week to answer to charges of assault, endangering human life, and violating the sanctity of the state Assembly building, according to a senior police officer.

“I don’t want to be arrested because I was only invited for an agreed amount to accompany Igwe to a function,” declared one of the chiefs.
