In Enugu state, a power toxic traditional ruler ordered the demolition of a building being built by a philanthropist for a poor and blind man named Anibueze Nnadi AKA Benze in the family of Ezemagu from Uwani-Otobo ,Umuezike village , Aku.



However, the Igwe, Christopher Okwor who is the traditional ruler of the Ihekwuenu Autonomous community sent hooligans led by his son Uzochukwu Okwor to demolish the said house unprovoked.

The said land was never in the dispute or in any court of law.

Meanwhile, following the revelation of the incident, the Enugu state government has now suspended the power toxic traditional ruler, the Enugu State government announced the immediate suspension of the recognition of Igwe Christopher Everestus Okwor as the Traditional Ruler of Ihekwuenu Aku Autonomous Community in Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of the state.

The suspension, according to a statement by the Commissioner for Chieftaincy Affairs, Dr. Charles C. O. Egumgbe, “is in the interest of peace, order and good governance and in compliance with Section (10b) of the Traditional Rulers Law, Cap 151, Revised Laws of Enugu State, 2004”.

Dr. Egumgbe, in the statement, told Igwe Okwor that “your Community is presently in turmoil due to wanton destruction of property and threat to lives of the members of the community”.

The Chieftaincy Commissioner, who disclosed that Igwe Okwor’s letter of recognition MCM/CM/98/VOL.11/116 is dated January 28, 2008, added: “Your suspension takes effect today, September 21, 2021, and would subsist pending the conclusion of investigation by the relevant bodies”.
