24 hours ultimatum has been issued by the youths from Umuahia with the aegis to dethroned father of the leader of IPOB,Nnamdi Kanu.
They wrote a letter to the governor of Abia state that,they would take the laws into their hands by dethroning him,stripping him naked and burning down his palace.
The father of the leader of IPOB is said to be the ruler of Isiama Afaraukwu community in Umuahia.
Following the letter addressed to the governor of the state,Okezie Ikpeazu .The youth said they are demanding the Monarch’s dethronement due to the fact that he failed to call his son to order but rather encouraged him in his “folly” .
They stated that; “With tears and sorrow, the Umuahia Youth Movement respectfully write to request the dethronement of Nnamdi Kanu’s father as a traditional ruler of our clan. It beats our imagination that a man who calls himself a royal father and an elder could not call his son to order but rather encourage him in his madness has have plunged Umuahia city to a great crisis today. Sir, recall that Umuahia have been the most peaceful capital city in Nigeria to live and do business but just because of one man, we are today facing the wrath of the federal government of Nigeria. Our shops, markets, schools, churches and all banks have been shut down. For the past three days we have been indoors for fear of been attacked by the military just because of one man whose father is our traditional ruler. Based on the above, we hereby request that he be dethroned within 24 hours or we will take the laws into our hands and dethrone him and even strip him unclad and raze his house. We appeal to every well meaning Nigerian as well to prevail on governor Ikpeazu to as a matter of urgency dethrone Nnamdi Kanu’s father.”
