Embittered Youths Set Palace Of Imo Monarch Ablaze

No fewer than 200 youths have set ablaze the palace of the traditional ruler of Obollo autonomous community, Edwin Mbaeyi, in Isiala Mbano Local Government of Imo state.




Punch reports that an eyewitness, who simply identified himself as Collins, said that the palace was burnt over the refusal of the monarch to coronate one Chijioke Njokuocha as the traditional prime minister of the community after the death of his father, Samuel Njokuocha.


According to the source, the monarch’s preference for one Jasper Nwachukwu angered the youths who had gathered to witness the coronation of Chief Njokuocha. The youths, however, took laws into their hands when the event failed to hold.


He said: “Our traditional ruler has insisted on making Chief Jasper Nwachukwu our traditional Prime Minister as against the rightful owner. The position of the prime minister in our community is hereditary.


“After the death of our prime minister, Chief Samuel Njokuocha, our custom, and tradition demand that his first son, Chijioku Njokuocha, should be coronated. This issue started since 2016 and our traditional ruler has remained adamant and wants to go against the culture and tradition of our people.


Even the office of the governor on conflict resolution had mandated him to coronate the rightful person but he vehemently refused. After much persuasion, he agreed to do the coronation on Tuesday after he had boycotted it one month ago.


To the chagrin of the people who had gathered with much excitement to witness the ceremony he declined. The youths were embittered. They had no other option than to set the palace ablaze after the monarch had fled.

Mitchel Uchendu, I concur with You. Our Youths are becoming useless and irresponsible by the day. Always ready to fight but never ready to work harder and challenge situations Mentally.I think Igbosare cursed, from their Governor's to their corrupt Ezes.

I like It that the Youth are now demanding what's right and refusing to take just anything. Even though I had wanted it to be done with no violence.

At least this has taught the Selfish Monarch a lesson and has also sent word across to others who may want to take what rightly belongs to one and give another.
