The police in Delta State have declared as illegal the coronation of one Chief Nzefili Nwadukwe as the traditional ruler of Abala-Obodo Kingdom in Ndokwa East Local Government Area of Delta State.
Nwadukwe was crowned king on April 5, 2014 by a faction of the community.
But the state Commissioner of Police, Ikechukwu Aduba on Wednesday said the coronation was illegal because there was an existing traditional ruler at the time of Nwadukwe’s purported coronation.
“The illegal coronation was done in contravention of an existing law banning the creation of parallel monarchies in a community.
Nzefili Nwadukwe is by this publication declared wanted and will be hunted down to face the law.”
The commissioner warned persons or groups intending “to usurp a government recognized monarchy in contravention of the law to have a change of mind and follow the due process of the law in pursuit of their ambitions.
“This is more so, as the command will not fold its arms to watch any person or group of persons attempting to truncate the relative peace we have so far achieved in the state as we will not hesitate to visit the full wrath of the law on such culprits, please.”
Meanwhile, one Mavin Aliemeke has been arrested for robbing a teenage girl at gunpoint of N100,000 and six telephone handsets in her custody.
The incident occurred on Sunday when the suspect and others now at large using an unregistered Lifan CG 125 motorcycle attacked the 18-year-old girl at Micon Mighty Filling Station, Ogbagidi quarters, Ekuku-Agbor in Ika South LGA of the state.
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Celestina Kalu, who confirmed the arrest, said two locally made single barrel guns were recovered from the suspect who would be charged to court at the end of investigation.
She said the police were on the trail of the fleeing colleagues of the suspect.
