Stopping The Infamy

The Ekpeye Regent In-Council hereby expresses dismay and utmost disappointment over the odious drama trending online over the Stool of Eze Ekpeye Logbo.

The uninformed decision orchestrated by some individuals that passes as “Owhor Holders” is
condemned. It follows that the rumour of the purported declaration of the Eze Ekpeye Logbo Stool vacant and subsequent naming of a “new Eze Ekpeye Logbo” is of no consequence; it is a nulity.

It is an undisputed fact that the Eze Ekpeye Logbo Stool is not hereditary. An occupant of the Stool emerge through a delegate election and delegates are drawn from across all the Igbu (Kingdoms) that make up the Ekpeye Ethnic Nation. Consequently, the winner is presented to the public for coronation.

It is however highly preposterous and disheartening that some persons would become hysteria and acting desperate to thwart the age-long custom and tradition of the Ekpeye people.

The action of the “Owhor Holders” is tantamount to unholy act and encouraging false claim as neither an individual nor single Igbu can select, elect or name a substantive Eze Ekpeye Logbo. The trending rumour fell below any responsible and acceptable action.

The Regent In-Council view the action of the “Owhor Holders” as an attempt to balkanize Ekpeye and trigger a resurgence of unscalable crisis. Therefore, it is imperative to warn against the furtherance of this charade because if allowed to stand, it would distort known history.

While it is imperative for the Executive Chairmen of Ahoada East and Ahoada West Local Government Areas, the Rivers State Government and Security Agencies to stand with the Ekpeye people, the Regent In-Council call on the good people of Ekpeye to go about their normal activities peacefully.
