Aba has no emirate, jettison plot to coronate Emir of Aba, Abia govt warns
By Steve Oko
Abia State Government, has warned those behind the illegal plot to install an Emir of Aba.
The warning is coming on the heels of an alleged proposal to coronate one Sarki Belo Shehu 11, the Emir of Aba.
Abia State Government has frowned at the move, warning of severe consequences against the masterminds.
Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Chris Ezem, in a strong-worded press statement, Wednesday, warned those behind the illegal plot to perish the thought or be ready to face the music.
The statement made available to Wawa News Global read:”The attention of Government of Abia State has been drawn to a proposed coronation of one Sarki Shehu Bello 11 as the Emir of Aba Emirate Council without recourse to Government.
“Government wishes to warn all involved in this unauthorized and illegal coronation to stop forthwith or be prepared to face the full weight of the law.
“Government hereby directs the immediate cancellation of the proposed illegal coronation as there is nothing like Aba Emirate Council in the State.
“Government further warns all residents in the state especially those resident in Aba to be law abiding.
“Law enforcement agents have been directed to swing into action and ensure that no such event capable of breaching the existing peace in the state takes place in Aba or any part of the State.”
Aba, popularly known as Enyimba City is the heart beat of the State, and by extension, Igbo land.
It is also a support base for Biafra agitators, hence, the proposal could spark ethnic tension if not immediately rescinded.
