Igwe Ameke suspended over disregard to kolanut - ITREALMS

The traditional ruler of Umueri in Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State, Igwe Ben Ameke has been suspended from the traditional council over alleged disregard to kolanut breaking, reports ITREALMS.

This development, 
ITREALMS gathered occured at the weekend, during a thank you visit by Governor Willie Obiano to the area.

According to reports by Vanguard, the monarch was suspended for 12 months for instigating disagreement among royal fathers and for fragrantly violating customs and tradition of Igbo land with regards to the breaking of kolanuts.

The chairman, Anambra East Traditional Rulers Council, Igwe Alex Edozieuno, in a letter announcing Igwe Ameke’s suspension, directed that “an observer from Umueri should be nominated to be attending a meeting of royal fathers in the area while the suspension lasts."

The suspension letter was copied to the chairman of Anambra State Traditional Rulers Council and Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe, the state commissioner for chieftaincy affairs, the police and Department of State Service, DSS, among others.

Further, Vanguard reported that during a reception for Obiano, who was on a ‘thank you’ visit to the area, Igwe Ameke grabbed the kolanuts from the Senior Special Assistant to Governor, Mr. Anthony Oli on the ground that he was son of the soil and therefore is the right person to break the kolanut.
