Deji Of Akure Bans Eze Ndigbo title

THE crisis ‎over the title of Eze Ndigbo in Akure, Ondo state took a new turn as the paramount Deji of Akureland Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi has said that the title remained banned and that the removal of the title owner Gregory Iloehika stands. 



Some concerned Igbo leaders in Akure raised an alarm last week ‎that the Oba was planning to install a rival Eze Ndigbo which may disrupt the existing peace between the Igbo community and the people of Akure, their host. The Oba however insisted yesterday in a statement that the conferment of any‎ honorary title on anyone (indigene and non-indigene) within Akure Kingdom, remains the sole right and prerogative of ‎Oba Aladelusi. It will be recalled ‎that last year the Oba had a running battle with the owner of the title, Ileohika over alleged act of insubordination which eventually culminated to his removal and ban of the title. In what looked like a hit back, the Oba was alleged to have agreed with some pockets of Igbo leaders to factionalised the group by raising a rival leader to cut Ileohika to size. Although the statement issued yesterday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Oba Michael Adeyeye in Akure said‎ the Oba had no intention to install a rival but in another breath said the Igbo is at liberty to present any leader to the Oba if they so desired. ‎

According to the the statement “it remains within the purview of the Igbo community to choose its own leadership and it is at liberty to present a leader from among itself if it so desires ‎ “It is important to reiterate that the title of Eze Ndigbo does not exist anywhere in Akure or Ondo state. Therefore, there could not have been any move to install anyone with such tittle. 


“Hence, it remains a figment of the imagination and mere wishful thinking for anyone who claims such. “An earlier act of insubordination to the Yoruba monarchy and culture by one Mr. Gregory Iloehika, has been deplored by all and sundry, in all its ramifications, as against the traditional norms and practice of the Yoruba people. “This led to his removal and subsequent ban of the title of Eze Ndigbo in Akure Kingdom and the entire Ondo State. 


“It remains a fact that the Deji & Paramount Ruler of Akure Kingdom, Oba Ogunlade Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi is a peace-loving monarch who sees all his subjects as one, irrespective of their religious or ethnic affinity. ” Oba Aladetoyinbo has, therefore, reaffirmed the ban on such title in Akure Kingdom and by extension, in Ondo State, as agreed on by the Ondo State Council of Traditional Rulers. ” For the benefit of doubt, Oba Aladetoyinbo has no intention to install any leader for the Igbo community as being speculated. 


“However, it remains within the purview of the Igbo community to choose its own leadership and it is at liberty to present a Leader from among itself if it so desires. “The palace will deal decisively with anyone trying to fan the ember of discord through this means, thereby creating unnecessary panic and misinformation in Akure and Ondo state at large. The palace according to the Oba “wishes to state that it will continue to maintain peaceful cordial relationship between it and all non-indigenes resident in Akure. 


*Well explained...

Yea...no two king 👑 should be in a state

They can have other title but not @Eze ndi igbo.




I no read the write up though..just my own opinion


In calabar here....we have "Obong of Calabar" and that's it.

You can be President of Igbo association or any other state association....but no one shares"obong" title with my Original @Obong of Calabar

These filthy akpu smelling igbos will go to another person's land and start making trouble. Imagine the audacity of this fool to be challenging the Deji. They cannot tolerate one tenth of this rubbish in their own place.

All I see is the picture 😂😂😂😂

BLUNT said...

How can you ban a thing that does not exist? There's nothing like Eze Igbo. Igbo enwe gi eze. Both the deji and people dragging the so-called ezi Igbo title are misinformed.

Morning ooo beevees.
my menses lasts for 6 whole days even after 4 kids, pls is there anything i can do or take to cut down the number of days it flows?
I'm just sick and tired of the thing.suggestions pls. Thx

peace maker said...

The Deji man should be more concerned about the high level of underdevelopment & penury in his state + among his own subjects than Ezeigbo title.

DonMayor said...

Who Eze EPP ? Kabiyesi please ban all the sheriki too. We don't need all those yeye title in this part of the world.

Elastic said...

What business does Oba have with Igbo traditions and culture? It's like Nigerian government having jurisdiction over USA embassy in Nigeria...Is that even obtainable? I need someone to educate me please.

la effizy said...

Is the Eze whatever thing really necessary? Una can like to show yourselves @ Igbos. Just do your business which you are good at, and keep moving abeg. Who those titles epp?

PL THE GREAT said...

My people... Always seeking relevance in wrong places and pursuing wrong things. I've never admired the so called eze ndigbo. I find it hilarious instead. Vainglorious men who contest for this title do it out of sheer greed and suffer a great deal of delusions of grandeur. If you want to be a ruler, you have to be 'born' for the role and you have to rule within your own territory. For you to posses power, you must be backed by legitimacy. It becomes ridiculous and makes a mockery of your so called kingship when you have to bow to the wishes of another king. Imagine being banned! Lmao! The oba did a very noble thing.



Stop shaming us please. The only kings we know are seated in their respective palaces in IGBOLAND not Yorubaland.

Do yorubas have obas in other parts of Nigeria? Or hausas? Cos I hear eze ND igbo in every nook and cranny of Nigeria.

Why do Igbos always find the need to cause trouble in another man's land? These people have welcomed you and given you space to do your business, next thing is to begin to challenge their authority in their own land? Something non of you will tolerate in ibo land.

The Oba did very well! The authority of the Oba must not be questioned by a visitor.

If the Igbos in Akure land want be royalty or be regarded as one, they should go to Igboland exercise their power.
A royal danish can not go to the queen of Edinburgh for titles.

Why are our Igbo brothers always trying to cause commotion where there's peace.
Everyone should maintain their lane.

stranger said...

I find it quite annoying.

Mrs.R SDK blog Official BFF said...

Is the Igbo people there that are dragging for Eze Ndi igbo title and constituting nuisance in the land that has no constitutional rights not the Deji.

The Deji is the head of the traditional ruler of Akureland and the veto power is on him.

Don't mind them. They are everywhere except their own land, idiots

Becky Divine said...

It's very funny sha lol

Shyla said...

Why do we Ibos like to look for relevance where it does not count. Cant they just respect themselves in any place they find themselves. They have gone to another man's land and are dragging titles upandan. Go and check the people dragging title, na thatched roof them fit get for their own homeland oh. Red cap chiefs with 'batcher' houses.

What harm does the Eze title cause any of you lamenting over it, those of you saying other tribes dont have leadership in igbo land, who told you? Have you been to igbo land?
There are mosques in my villages and Hansa communities, there are also Yoruba communities and they all have their leaders.
The difference is we don't care what they do! During Sallah they dress up and do there thing and even offer igbo neighbours meat.
Stop all this igbo hating please, Nigeria has embassy in other countries and Nigerian communities have leaders even outside the country so what is so painful in having same when in another stand. This is just a social organisation to give people sense of identity and culture as they sojourn far from home. Nobody even bothers with what the Yorubas do in their community here and we do business with them daily

I thought the ibos and queen of the gutter said they don't have kings that rule over them.

Last I read was the fight for the Eze-ship in far away Malaysia! Can you imagine? Crowning a 2nd king in another man's town

Is akure an igbo land? Why come to another person's land and want to start trouble.

Anonymous said...

The igbos should be more concerned about developing their own lands, not the other way round.

This I - I
G - Go
B - Before
O - Others Syndrome though...


AGELESS T said...

The example you gave has to do with international diplomatic relations. It is entirely different from the issue at hand. The Oba retains the absolute power as to whether such title should exist in his land or not.

Hope you understand now?

Yorubas are just too simple abeg. That's why they take them for a ride all the time. It is well...

Anon no one is talking about mosque or church here. So please spare us with ibo hating bullshit.

Mrs.R SDK blog Official BFF said...

Just listen to yourself! I lived half of my life in the Eastern part of Nigeria, in all those years I never for once heard of a titled Yoruba chief having a say in the Igbos traditional ruler palace, you can be welcomed as a visitor not as royalty who will be deciding on how the indigenes should live their lives.

The Igbos are free to have a community not a palace in Ondo land.

Nigerian embassies overseas knows their various boundaries.

We are all one but we must learn to respect the law of the land wherever we find ourselves.

Why d hate!!!! Bro n sis

LOVE your fellow peeps

Shut up there peacemaker.
Why not stay in your land and if you like let one man have ten titles. You can't come into someone's land and dictate.
You people never want to stay in your land I don't get it.
You talk about underdevelopment, I laugh in German. That your unfruitful red sand land, what is more underdeveloped than that place. Your useless leaders who can't even lead themselves have chopped all the money. No good roads, no electricity or running water in some villages.
If your land is so developed please answer me why you people can't stay there and migrate to Yoruba lands like there are things chasing you in your village.

BEDS AND ROSES said...

James I can see you have run out of your medication again..........
Always saying things that don't make sense. Underdeveloped you say ? You know no one is forced to stay in an "underdeveloped " land you know.
