Enugu Community Seeks Urgent Govt. Intervention Over Vacant Throne Crisis


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Members of the Concerned Emudo Development Union National (EDUN) Stakeholders Forum in Aninri Council Area of Enugu State, South- East Nigeria, have expressed concern over possible breakdown of law and order in their community over kingship succession.

They however, called on both the State and federal governments to intervene urgently so as to avert possible break down of law and order in the locality.

Briefing Newsmen in Enugu, Coordinator of the group, Mr. Udeinya Ukegbu stressed the need for government to wade in because of the security concerns in the community.

Ukegbu said that it had become imperative to speak out and seek government’s intervention following the succession crisis rocking Emudo Nenwe Community.

According to him, the community had known no peace since the death of their traditional ruler several years ago, adding that the traditional stool had remained vacant.

He said that the community had delicately been polarized due to the several interest groups which sprang up, claiming to be in charge of the town union administration.



He said “Our traditional stool and town union administration have been in ruins since the death of our traditional ruler, adding that the community has been thrown into despair and this could affect our generations unborn if nothing is done to resolve it.

Ukegbu disclosed that the Central Executive Committee (CEC) of EDU-N was the only standing constitutional organ that could intervene in the crisis in the community.

“It is on this note that the Generation of Concerned Critical Stakeholders in collaboration with the CEC of EDU-N wishes to appeal to the various branches to prevail on the various factions to sheath their swords in the interest of our dear community,” he said.

He said that the crisis in the area had affected the youth and women wings of the town union as well as the Elders’ Forum, and Council of Clans/Hamlets Chairmen and Secretaries, creating further tension.

“We therefore call on the Federal and state governments to come to our aid because Emudo Nenwe is at the verge of total collapse.
