Obiano suspends 12 more traditional rulers for one year

According to a statement by Greg Obi, the commissioner for local government, chieftaincy and community affairs, the monarchs were suspended for travelling out of the state, without “consultation or approval”from the government.

Obi claimed the rulers were suspended by a meeting of Traditional Rulers Council of Anambra held on 11 August.
But in a post by human rights activist, Chidi Odinkalu, the rulers may have been punished for visiting Chief Arthur Eze, a prominent leader of the state.
A video posted also by Odinkalu, showed the leaders counting money given them by the billionaire.
The rulers affected by the suspension are: Igwe Alex Edozieuno, Igwe Mark Anthony Okonkwo, Igwe Chilwuma Bob Vincent Orji, Igwe Engr. G.B.C. Mbakwe, Igwe Udoji and Igwe S.O. Uche.
Others are Igwe Chijioke Nwankwo, Igwe Nkeli Nelly, Igwe Anthony Onyekwere, Igwe A.N. Onwuneme, Igwe Simon Ikechukwu Chidubem and Igwe Emeka Iluono.
