The peaceful community of Alor in Idemili South Local Council area of Anambra and home town of Senator Chris Ngigie, is enmeshed in confusion and brewing crisis over alleged connivance of some top government officials to impose monarch.
Consequently, the community popularly referred to as “Alor London”, has been thrown into anxiety.
The crisis began when the Caretaker Committee constituted by the state government in the enclave declared the stool of the late monarch of the kingdom, Igwe Japheth Nkwoka vacant against the constitution of ‘Alor Peoples Convention’ as well as directed the Ifite section of Alor whose it is turn, to nominate the next monarch.
African Examiner gathered that activities of the Caretaker Committee have allegedly led to confusion and disagreements among the Ifite natives, a situation that has resulted to nomination of two parallel candidates.
The nominees – Messrs Chinedu Okonkwo and Emeka Ikegwogu, both presently parade themselves as the Igwe-elect. In the main time, the community has threatened to sue the state government, which it accused was the brain behind the confusion and looming crisis.
