ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The Obi of Ogwashi-Uku, His Royal Majesty (HRM) Obi Ifechukwude Aninshi Okonjo II, and his convoy survived cultists attack during their visit to Otulu Ogwashiku-Uku, Delta State where he went to offer prayers, reports ITREALMS.

Confirming this to ITREALMS in a press statement endorsed by the spokesperson to the Obi of Ogwashi-Uku, Prince Greg Okwumbu, said the Obi and members of the Council of Ogwashi-Uku had visited Otulu Ogwashi-Uku Friday, September 17, 2021.

“The visit was largely successful and the Obi met members of the community, prayed with them and discussed with them about the issues,” he said.

As said by him, “At the end of the visit and when the Obi was departing, cultists and thugs imported into Otulu who were aware of the visit attacked members of the entourage who were at the rear of the convoy.”

In addition, he lamented that “The thugs also attempted to forcefully seize a gun belonging to a law enforcement member who escorted the Obi on the visit.”

Prince Okwumbu pointed out that members of the press accompanied the Obi on the visit as well as law enforcement agents from the Office of the Area Commander and the Brigade Command in Asaba witnessed everything that happened.

He further revealed that they know those behind the attack and they will be dealt with accordingly.

“The people who sponsored the thugs are known to us and will be brought to Justice,” he assured.
