The Enugu State Government has suspended the traditional rulers of Akwuke and Akwuke Uwani autonomous communities, in Enugu South Local Government Area, HRH Igwe Bernard Nwoye and HRH Igwe Cyprian Ekwomchi, respectively.

The royal fathers were sanctioned following allegations of misconduct leading to a mass protest to the Government House, Enugu, by indigenes of the two communities.

The suspension, which is for 30 days, in the first instance, according to a statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Simon Uchenna Ortuanya, was in the interest of peace, order and good governance and in compliance with Section 10 (b) of the Traditional Rulers Law, Cap 151 Revised Laws of Enugu State, 2004.

The statement further added that the State Commissioner for Chieftaincy Matters, Dr. Charles Egumgbe, pursuant to Section 16 (1) of the Traditional Rulers Law “has initiated an Administrative Enquiry” in respect of the allegations against the affected traditional rulers.
