He told them to ensure that the rampant cultism in their communities was stopped.Obiano spoke at the Government Lodge in Amawbia, Awka South Local Government Area, when he issued Certificates of Recognition to the monarchs – Igwe Maximus Oliobi (Nimo) and Igwe Prof Charles Anikweze (Awkuzu)
The governor, however, sympathized with Nimo on the death of its President-General and former lawmaker, Chief Anthony Frank Igboka, who was murdered by gunmen at Oye market recently.
Igwe Oliobi promised Obiano and members of his community he would not disappoint them.
The traditional ruler of Nteje, Igwe Roland Odegbo, told the monarchs there were series of problems associated with kingship. According to him, the position was not for enjoyment, but sufferings, saying their major priority would be to ensure peace in their areas.
