From Idris Ahmed, Lokoja.

The Oworo Traditional Council in Lokoja local government area of Kogi state has reacted to the petition written by the Iwo-Masi ruling house to the Kogi House of Assembly through the member representing Lokoja 11 constituency, Hon. Idris Ndakwo, seeking for the dethronement and banishing of Olu of Oworo from his stool.

Addressing a press conference on Monday in Lokoja, the Oworo Traditional Council led by Chief Augustine Berida, alleged that the petition and its sponsors are selfish, being masterminded and funded by Honourable Idris Ndakwo through his personal lawyer.

The Traditional Council stated, “the public is therefore invited to note that the petition is a product of Honourable Idris Ndakwo representing Lokoja 11 constituency which is intended to undermine the Oworo Traditional system, cause disaffection among the peace loving people of Oworo land and above all to embarrass the stool of Olu of Oworo Kingdom”.

While they passed a vote of confidence on their paramount ruler, the Council chiefs stated further, “Consequently, the Oworo Traditional Council wishes to state unequivocally that the petition of request for the dethronement and banishment of Olu of Oworo is hereby rejected and condemned in its entirety ,

“The council hereby passes vote of confidence on the Olu of Oworo, Mallam Mohammed Adoga Baiyerohi Agbosi 11”

According to the spokesman for the Traditional Council, Chief Berida, the purported crisis among the communities mentioned by the petitioners were land disputes, some of which existed before the advent of the present Olu on the throne, citing Oshokoshoko versus Iwa and Jakura/Oyo, most of which have already been resolved amicably by the Olu in Council.

Major concern to them is the dispute between Isegba/Oba and Oworo over the Stool’s land, which they are accusing Honourable Idris Ndakwo of maneuvering to his advantage. They alleged that between 2002 and 2010, following the demise of the then Olu of Oworo, Alhaji Abubakar Alugber, Hon. Ndakwo took over the community’s land stretching from Felele to Crusher a suburb of Lokoja and same for his personal gains and interest.

“This act is against any known custom and tradition in Oworo land. This has been challenged by the good people of Oworo land led by the Olu of Oworo and the case is pending at the Kogi state High Court, Koton-Karfe, awaiting adjudication”, the spokesman further revealed.
