Must read

Rochas Okorocha, the former governor of Imo State, has had his chieftaincy title of Otunba Asoludero revoked by Oba Akintunde Akinyemi, the Eselu of Iselu Kingdom.

The first-class traditional ruler canceled the installation ceremony, which was scheduled for September 19.

This was stated in a letter written by Oba Akinyemi and delivered to the former and current Senator dated August 9.

The first-class monarch had recently pronounced the lawmaker as the Otunba Asoludero of Iselu kingdom in Yewa -North Local Government Area of Ogun.

He had stated that the award was given in recognition of Okorocha’s efforts to unite various tribes across the country.

However, the king noted in a letter sent on Monday that the chieftaincy title was revoked “in the interest of peace and unity.”
