By Sunday Apah
The Egbema Traditional Council has invited all sons and daughters of the kingdom in Warri North and Ovia South West LGA of Delta and Edo states respectively to a meeting at Ajukurama on Friday 11 November, 2022 at 10am.
The Egbema Traditional Council in a statement signed by High Chief Johnbull Adaun, Chairman, Regency Council, Chief Tax Agbaibor, Chairman Egbema Traditional Council and High Chief Cyrus Olopele, Secretary Egbema Traditional Council, urged the people of Egbema and the general public to disregard any information from one Chief Joseph Pipi Owilly who has been suspended from activities of the Traditional Council.
The Egbema Traditional Council in the statement, said the purported information from Chief Joseph Pipi Owilly, was a further disregard to constituted authority and an affront on the entire people of Egbema kingdom except for the erring chiefs and their co-travellers.
The Egbema Traditional Council, urge all communities, indigenes and the general public to disregard and discountenance in its entirety, letters and subsequent information(s) emanating from the suspended Chiefs; David Bubor, Joseph Pipi Owilly, Simeon Igbedikuru, Williams Bilemo Igbiriki, Lucky Tiemo Fidisegha Ebiegberi and others who are holding out as Chairman and Secretary of Council as no well meaning person(s) in Egbema kingdom will consider them as responsible people and their correspondences of no effect.
According to the statement, “the Egbema Traditional Council led by Chiefs Tax Agbaibor and High Chief Cyrus Olopele as Chairman and Secretary respectively remains valid and authentic, It’s backed by the Egbema Regency Council, the Egbema Leaders of Thought and the generality of Egbema Isenabiri (principal communities) as the only recognized Egbema Traditional Council in force; it represents the ancient Egbema kingdom.
“The Council hereby warns all the aforementioned Chiefs to desist in parading themselves and bury their heads in shame as members of Egbema Traditional Council when they denigrate the time tested custom and tradition for a pottage of food, just as they say ”an Idle man is the workshop of the devil” as the good people of Egbema kingdom will not be surprised to see the gimmicks and antics of Owilly and their co-travellers.
“Egbema Traditional Council further warned Pipi Owilly and his team not to invoke the wrath of the supreme Egbesu deity for their sacrilegious and fraudulent activities in plunging the entire kingdom in disrepute and advised to retrace their steps for the general good and happiness of Egbema kingdom.
“Council warned Barrister Napoleon Egin not to further parade himself forthwith.
However, the council advised Napoleon Egin to quickly return to his endearing legal practice for the benefits of himself and his family instead of lending himself to be used by people who have no future that will abandon his already failed ambition in becoming Agadagba through the back door.
“Council hereby affirm for the information of the general public that the meeting is slated on the 11/11/2022 at Ajakurama, the traditional headquarter of Egbema kingdom. Therefore, we enjoin Egbema indigenes to attend the meeting in mass”, it added.
