Olubadan Council warns Alozie to drop Eze Ndigbo title

19 February 2016, 14:54

Ibadan - The Olubadan-in-Council has warned Dr Alex C. Alozie to stop parading himself as holder of the title of Eze Ndigbo of Igbos in Ibadan and Oyo State.

The council in a letter warned Alozie to desist from parading himself as Eze Ndigbo.

The letter addressed to the President General, Ohaneze Ndigbo, marked LL8co/02/16 and signed by one Oladepo Abiodun Esq states that “Our instruction is to make it clear to you that your action and that of your group you purport to represent in Ibadan and Oyo State in general amounts to an act of insubordination, illegality and a calculated attempts to cause chaos and breed a state of anarchy in the state.”

Alozie, however protested against the letter. He said whole world has been informed in the past of a high court judgment over the Igbo leadership tussle in Ibadan and Oyo State which favoured Dr. Alex Anozie and our association, ACDA, affiliate of Ohaneze worldwide.

He stated that the State High Court in Ibadan had ruled on the 18th of February 2014 which no other court has vacated, that only him should be paraded as Eze Ndigbo of Ibadan and Oyo State.
