Following the aged long kingship tussle in Idjerhe Kingdom in Delta State, three High Chiefs of the Kingdom mandated to select a 13-man Committee member to pick a new king for the people on Tuesday made a U- turn from their earlier decision to back out of the Committee, insisting that inuaguration must go on.
The trio, Chiefs: Williams Atiti, Godwin Ofishe and Solomon Odemero Ojariefe of Oyonbru, Boboroku and Jesse Central sub clans , respectively, who were due to swear-in Committee members had to put the inguaration on hold when nine out of the 13 Committee members refused to turn up with one opting the out of the Kingship tussle, said what happened on August 6, 2020 was orchestrated by those who do not mean well for the kingdom.
Speaking to Journalists in Jesse, the Central Chief, Ojariefe Benjamin who reaffirmed his position as the Unugbrogodo of Jesse Central, said”we want to set the record straight, so that our Kingdom can move forward. I want to state that I am still the Unugbrogodo of Idjerhe Central Oguedion, and I have not resigned from this position, what happened some days ago was orchestrated by those who don’t mean well for the kingdom, however, as law abiding citizen and as Unugbrogodo of the Kingdom, We have consulted our team of lawyers. We have been advised and properly guided, so we have resolved to continue the process of inuaguration of the new Committee and the subsequent screening of the aspirants to the exalted throne of Idjerhe Kingdom”.
