Delga: Bakana Monarch Want New CP Intervened in Kingship Tussle

The Amanyanabo of Bakana community in the Degema Local Government Area of Rivers State, HRH Omieibimaba Orubuiyi Odum VIII has called on the new Commissioner of Police, Rivers State, Mr. Dan Bature to immediately wade into the kingship tussle rocking the community and find a lasting solution to the crises.

HRH Orubuiyi, Odum VIII who made the call while exchanging views with journalists in his palace in Bakana on Monday, informed the new CP that all the necessary documents relating to the Bakana kingship tussle have been filed and forwarded to the outgone police commissioner AIG Tunde Ogunsakin when he was in the state.

According to the royal father, the necessary documents are already on the desk of the immediate past Commissioner of Police, adding that it is important for the new CP to treat the matter urgently.

The Odum VIII said that he remains the undisputable Amanyanabo of Bakana, “but the problem is there are persons who are parading themselves illegally and causing troubles in the community. What I want is the new CP to intervene to ensure total peace in the community”.

The paramount ruler who had earlier felicitated with the new CP, Mr. Bature for his appointment also welcome him to Rivers State.

His words “Let me use this medium to congratulate Mr. Dan Bature on his appointment as the new Commissioner for Police, Rivers State. As a committed and career police officer, I know that he will bring his wealth of professional experience to bear, by bringing absolute peace in Bakana”.

The monarch who said that court has long ago declared him as the authentic Amanyanabo of Bakana and wondered why some persons who are not qualified to ascend to the prestigious ancient Odum kingship stool are parading themselves unnecessarly to foment crisis in the community.

The Amanyanabo who applauded Gov. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi’s leadership style, pleaded that the governor should accord the Odum kingship stool the necessary recognition. He said that as a king is a father to all, therefore he will continue to support the policies and the programmes of the government.

King Odum however warned trouble makers to desist from causing crisis in his domain, and called on the people of Bakana to join hands with him to develop the community.

Odum VIII further sent a passionate appeal to the commissioner incharge of Chieftaincy and Community Affairs, Hon. Charles Okaye to honour and accept the list of the names of the Community Trust (CT) forwarded to him, stating that is one sure way to maintain peace and orderliness in the community.

He also cautioned some staff of the Ministry of Works who were in the community to map out some internal roads without his knowledge and permission as the paramount ruler of the community to desist from that.

“As the king anyone who is coming to do work in my community will come to my palace first. But in this case it was not so. They should leave the community now if not I will not be happy with them”, King Odum, VII concluded. ###
