Imo Monarch abducted with cabinet members, families

Written by Chinonso Alozie, Owerri

The traditional ruler of the Umuezie community in Nguru, an Aboh Mbaise local government in the state of Imo, Eze Charles Iroegbu, has been kidnapped by suspicious rioters who terrorize villagers around the Okigwe zone and the Mbaise axis.

Vanguard in Owerri, an indigenous man from the area, said the monarch was abducted on Wednesday night along with members of his cabinet as they were returning home from a traditional wedding ceremony.

The monarch, who is said to be the general director for relations of all countries for mass transit, was also said to have been with some members of his family.

He did not respond to several calls and messages addressed to State Police Public Relations Officer Orlando Ikeokwo at the time of submitting this report.

However, tensions gripped the Umuezia community, as it was said that the subjects of the abducted monarch were discussing the possible whereabouts of their monarch.
