Abuja - A queen from the palace in the Idumuje-Ugboko community, Aniocha LGA in Delta State has been expelled from the throne following allegations of infidelity, Vanguard reports.
Her Royal Majesty Okwukwe Nwoko, has claimed that she was unjustly removed from the throne by people seeking to usurp her.
According to the Queen, her expulsion was conducted while she was seven months pregnant so as to make way from her husband, the King, adding that infidelity is not in her nature as an African woman.

Ready to subject herself and child to DNA testing, Queen Nwoko expressed her love for her husband, saying that she would not do anything to bring disgrace to the throne or the palace.
Appealing to the Obi-in-Council, the Queen begged that she be allowed back into the palace in order to take care of her husband.
A member of the royal family, however, maintained that the Queen Mother was found to be pregnant outside of her marriage and as such, must face the consequences of her actions.
The Obi-in-Council has yet to address the matter.
