Highly Celebrated 17-year-old Delta King Rejected by Kingmakers...The reason why, will leave you speechless


Ubulu-Uku, a town in Aniocha Local Government Area of Delta State is on the verge of crisis, which may lead to an explosion of violence.
 
The cause of the unease in the town is the installation of Agbogidi Chukwuka Noel Akaeze 1, a 17-year old half-caste, as the new Obi of Ubulu Uku. 

On Monday in Asaba, the capital of Delta State, the head of the kingmakers (Onishe) of Ubulu-Uku, Mr. Emma Ejiofor, told journalists that the teenage monarch was not the choice of the kingmakers, but a creation of the government. He also described his late father as a usurper.

“I am the alter-ego of Ubulu-Uku traditional council. It is the Onishe that has the powers to crown or dethrone the king. The late Akaeze was a usurper. I did not crown him. If you go through the edict which makes my office, you will see that I did not also crown the little boy that was politically manipulated into office.  The nine-man Council of Chiefs (Umuozim), which customarily selects a new king, were sidelined,"
 said Ejiofor.

The head of the kingmakers added that the new monarch is a minor, and there is no way he would support a boy of that age to be the traditional ruler of the town.


By all standards, the boy is still a minor. If I dance to their side, the gods will strike me. The young man came from London, and his father was interred that day. He was placed on his father's chair same day. He was taken to the council chairman the following day. The third day, they took him to the governor, and he returned to the United Kingdom the next day. These things were done to tell you that some persons schemed to cover up for their traditional rascality,” Ejiofor stated.


He maintained that he is qualified to speak for the kingmakers, dismissing suggestions that he was suspended by the late monarch. “One who was not crowned a king cannot suspend a traditional title holder. The late Akaeze had no powers to suspend me for not accepting his self-styled installation," he said.


Sources in the town told SaharaReporters that the town's tradition forbids the installation of a half-caste as king and are scared that the installation of Chukwuka Noel Akaeze 1 could spark large-scale violence in the town


"In our kingdom, a half-caste is not crowned as king, no matter the circumstances. Our people forget history. Our murdered King, HRM Akaeze Edward Ofulue III, was not the eldest son of his father. The eldest son was rejected because our tradition forbids a half-caste from being king. His mother is an Irish woman," explained a chief in the community.


The chief wondered why the new monarch, whose mother is said to be a Guinean, could be king when his father owed his kingship to the disqualification of his elder brother, who was a Mulatto.
