Owukori Royal House Petitions Amaechi

The Owukori (Manuel) Royal House, Abonnema in Akuku-Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State has petitioned the state Chief Executive, Rt Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi on the implication of recognizing one Chief Disreal Gbobo Bob-Manuel as the Head of the Owukori Royal House and Amadabo of Abonnema.
A letter signed by Chief E.B.A. Bob-Manuel on behalf of Chief Awoye Kelly Bob-Manuel who is the acting head of the Royal Owukori House of Abonnema stated that it was unfortunate that Chief Disreal G. Bob-Manuel who was described as an impostor to the throne is still parading himself as the substantive occupant of the throne despite suit No DHC/25/2011 between Chief Awoye Kelly Bob-Manuel and others and chief Disreal G. Bob-Manuel and others pending at the Degema High Court which was adjourned for further hearing to 4th, 9th and 12th October, 2012.
It disclosed further that the Court Presided over by Hon Justice Sikka Aprioku considering the volatile nature of the imposition of chief Disreal G. Bob-Manuel on the royal stool in its wisdom gave the matter accelerated hearing.
Based on the foregoing, the royal house prayed that any process leading to the recognition of the alleged impostor as the Head of the Royal House of Abonnema as rumored be put on hold, warning that anything to the contrary will not only prejudice the on-going trial but will provoke crisis in the area.
The letter which was copied to the honourable Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs as well as the Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-General, warned further that the matter being a volatile issue is capable of leading to serious breach of law and order as according to them, the royal house has the will-power to forcefully remove the alleged impostor on the royal stool, but decided to follow legal means of seeking redress. ####
