In what might seem the resurrection of NzeObi of Egbema following the rumour that boys from Ohaji/Egbema and Oguta local government areas are to ensure that Ekeukwu Owerri Market goes down tomorrow as ordered by the state government, the late traditional ruler has warned the youths of Ohaji-Egbema and Oguta LGAs in Imo State not to attract the anger of the gods of the area and those of Owerri.
He said they should rather trade with caution.
This warning came ahead of the planned invasion and demolition of the Ekeukwu Owerri Market tomorrow by the Imo State Government, and the mobilization of the Youths of the Oil rich areas by Okorocha’s Deputy Chief of Staff (Operations), Hon Kingsley Chima Uju, who had through a press statement issued a relocation order that "The government of Imo State has issued a relocation order of 48 hours to the occupants of Ekeukwu market and illegal motor parks along Douglas road to relocate to the new place assigned to them. The order will elapse on Saturday 26/8/2017 to enable the government construct a model school and reconstruct Douglas road."
Our source said that the mobilization of the youths of the oil rich LGAs of Imo State in their hundreds is to ensure total compliance to government directive.
The warning from the late NzeObi came as the NzeObi Royal Dynasty has spoken in bold term, condemning the use of Ohaji-Egbema youths to perpetrate what they described as evil.
Warning the youths of the Oil bearing communities to be careful, the Dynasty stated that the ancestral spirits of Ohaji-Egbema and that of Owerri people have been in the peace and they coexisted peacefully, warning against any action of the youths that would provoke the ancestors.
The crown Prince of the Dynasty who spoke to www.ifeanyicy.com, Uzor , said that his father appeared to him and warned that he didn't want any thing that would jeopardize the success and growth of youths from his community, stating that Late HRH Eze Njemanze had sent emissaries to him in the spirit kingdom to warn his subjects to desist from taking any action as far the demolition of Ekeuwku Owerri is concerned.
He said that following the appearance of his late father to him he was compelled to speak out.
Speaking also, Prince Francis Uzor begged the youths of his local government area of Ohaji-Egbema not to allow themselves to be used, to avoid the wrath of the gods.
