The Akure monarch said, “The title of Eze Ndigbo does not exist anywhere in Akure or Ondo state. Therefore, there could not have been any move to install anyone with such title. Hence, it remains a figment of the imagination and mere wishful thinking for anyone who claims such.

“An earlier act of insubordination to the Yoruba monarchy and culture by one Mr. Gregory Iloehika, has been deplored by all and sundry, in all its ramifications, as against the traditional norms and practice of the Yoruba people and this led to his removal and subsequent ban of the title of Eze Ndigbo in Akure Kingdom and the entire Ondo State.”

He however noted that, ” it remains within the purview of the Igbo community to choose its own leadership and it is at liberty to present a leader from among itself if it so desires.”

The monarch threatened to deal decisively with anyone trying to “fan the ember of discord through this means, thereby creating unnecessary panic and misinformation in Akure and Ondo state at large.”

He maintained that he remained the only authority with the prerogative to install any traditional or honourary chief within Akure kingdom.
