The traditional ruler of Ogbozine Akpugo, a community in the Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State, Igwe Steven Nwatu, has been murdered by yet to be identified persons.

It was gathered that the royal father was killed on Monday evening by assailants, who beat him until he lost consciousness.



He was reportedly rushed to Parklane Hospital, Enugu, where he was confirmed dead.

Sources in the community informed our correspondent that the royal father and some policemen attached to him were trying to effect the arrest of some members of the village, when he was ambushed by the assailants.

Nwatu was said to have just returned from a court sitting when he was attacked.

The traditional ruler was, reportedly, recently dragged to court by some of his subjects, who are not happy with the way he rules the community.

During the attack on Monday, the hoodlums, said to be many in number, reportedly disarmed the policemen attached to the royal father before attacking him.

 The policemen were said to have taken to their heels, leaving the traditional ruler at the mercy of his irate subjects.

There were unconfirmed reports that Nwatu was stripped naked in the course of the attack.

Our correspondent learnt that the royal father had been at loggerheads with some of his subjects, who accused him of high-handedness.

A source in the community claimed that Nwatu usually invited the police to arrest members of the village over false allegations.

He was also said to have scuttled moves to put in place a town union leadership in the community, a development which gave him the powers to rule unchallenged.

Recently, some members of the community had protested against the ‘Igwe’ at the Enugu State Government House, urging Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to depose him.

The aggrieved subjects eventually dragged him to court.

Before then, some youths of Agbozine Agbugo had besieged the Nkanu Police Station, threatening to burn down the facility after some community leaders were arrested, allegedly based on a petition written against them by the royal father.

Meanwhile, some youths, said to be the royal father’s loyalists, set fire on a number of buildings said to belong to Nwatu’s ‘enemies’ in the community.

The Enugu State Police Command, on Tuesday, said it had brought the situation in the community under control.

2019 according to Ifa oracle – Traditional religion adherents

Published

on

Traditional religion adherents under the umbrella of Ancient Religion Societies of African Descendants International Council (ARSADIC), have urged Nigerians to shun calamitous predictions by groups and individuals who have predicted that Nigeria will break up, doomed or ceased to exist after the 2019 general elections.



They made this known on Wednesday while revealing some of the messages from Ifa (divination), to Nigeria ahead of the 2019 general elections during the second annual general meeting and peace prayer service for Nigeria and Diaspora organised by ARSADIC at Oba Okunade Sijuwade Memorial Hall, Oke Mogun, Ile Ife, Osun State.

According to reports, ARSADIC which is a conglomerate of traditional religion associations across Nigeria and in the Diaspora is made up of organisations such as Traditional Religion Worshippers Association of Nigeria (TRAWSO) Oyo and Osun state chapters, International Council for Ifa religion, International Congress for Orisa Tradition and Culture and Orisa Worshippers Union among others.

 ARSADIC President, Dr. Sola Olalekan Atanda while revealing some of the messages from Ifa to Nigeria, said contrary to insinuations that Nigeria may disintegrate after the 2019 general elections, “Nigeria will not disintegrate, it was revealed that we should continue to be prayerful ahead of the general elections in 2019”.

ARSARDIC President while speaking said, “A God fearing person that believes in God must be optimistic, to be pessimistic is very dangerous, pessimism kill ambition. If you don’t have ambition, you may not have achievement. God is a great God, God will not destroy his handwork, we are God fearing people in Nigeria. A lot of people worship God in Nigeria, Christians, Muslims and traditional religion adherents, we all worship God. So, how can we now say that Nigeria will be doomed in 2019? No.

“We see prosperity and that is why we always consult God, that is why we had a divination in September this year, to ask God what we can do, what should be done to make Nigeria to continue to be giant of Africa, to give good life to our President, Muhammdu Buhari and his team.
