Imo community passes vote of confidence on Ilomuanya

The people of Obinugwu com­munity in Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State, has passed a vote of confidence on HRH Eze Cletus Ilo­muanya, Chairman of the state council of tradi­tional rulers, and the Obi of Obinugwu, just as they condemned Governor Rochas Okorocha’s threat to banish the traditional ruler from the state.
A statement signed by Kennedy Eweama, Media Consultant to Eze Ilo­muanya, and made avail­able to The AUTHOR­ITY, said the Obinugwu people re-affirmed their loyalty to Eze Ilomuanya.
Governor Okorocha had earlier threatened to banish Eze Ilomuanya from the state if he con­tinued to parade himself as the traditional ruler of Obinugwu.
According to the gov­ernor, Mr Stanley Sime­on Nwangwu, has been made the traditional ruler of the community follow­ing the deposition of Eze Ilomuanya.
But the Obinugwu people in the statement cautioned the governor against imposing a tradi­tional ruler on them, say­ing that Eze Ilomuanya remains their Eze, and that no vacancy exists in Obinugwu Ezeship stool.
The people said, “Gov­ernor Okorocha’s threat that he will arrest and banish our traditional ruler, HRH Eze C I Ilo­muanya, has a disturbing and provocative effect on the youths and the entire Obinugwu community.”
The community also demanded the reinstate­ment of their monarch as the Chairman of Imo State Council of Tradi­tional Rulers in compli­ance with various court judgments and the federal government’s directive on the issue.
“Prior to Governor Okorocha’s unwarranted aggression against Eze Ilomuanya, Obinugwu Community had en­joyed peace, stability and constant development because of the amicable relationship between our monarch and we, his sub­jects”, the statement said. - The Authority
