With Anambra State still keeping the election of traditional ruler of Ojoto in Idemili South Local Government Area at bay following the crisis that erupted in the wake of the election, the duo of Mr. Chibuzor Chukwulobe, who was stabbed on his back, and the community town crier, Emeka Uzor, have demanded for justice against their assailant.

While Chukwulobe was stabbed in the wake of the crisis, the town crier of the community was beaten to coma for allegedly declaring that the State Government had ordered that the conduct of the election be put off based on the crisis that erupted.

The stabbed Chukwulobe had while on his hospital bed told Journalists that his assailants wanted to kill him as they abandoned him in a pool if his blood and fled after he slumped, believing he was dead.

In his words, "My offence and that of the town crier, Emeka Uzor, was that we were telling the people that because of the crisis that characterized the process of the election to the throne of our Igwe that the state government had ordered that all processes be put off to avoid the ugly situation and that consequently nobody had been elected as the new monarch.

“I was in a beer parlour having this argument with few youths, some agreed with me but those who opposed me threatened to deal with me if I continue to maintain my position.

"On sensing danger I left the place not knowing that those who were against what I said were trailing me until I got to a distance and they pounced on me, gave me the beating of my life and as if that was not enough, they stabbed me on the back and ran away.

“The next was that I saw myself at Uzondu Hospital Ojoto and could not explain how I was brought to the place but my prayer is that the assailants and their sponsors including those who also attacked the town crier, Emeka be made to face justice properly. Thank God, according to the Police, the suspects will be arraigned and subsequently face the wrath of the law to serve as a deterrent to others.” 

He, however, hailed Governor Willie Obiano, for his timely intervention to stop the maiming of people in the name of conducting election to the throne of the traditional stool of the community saying that people will vote for the man of the people when the time comes.

Meanwhile in a joint meeting of Security Chiefs in the state that included the now retired Police Commissioner, Sam Okaula, the Department of State Service (DSS), National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and other stakeholders, the people of Ojoto were advised to obey the order not to continue with the election process and that nobody should parade himself as the new monarch until the state government gives directive on the next line of action.

In his speech, the Palace Secretary to the Regency of Ojoto, High Chief Anumba Joe Obimma, urged the people of Ojoto to abide by the order, adding: “The judicial and lawful directive of the State Government regarding the filling of the traditional ruler stool of Ojoto will be continued only on the instruction of the state government or any other authority empowered by law to do so.”
