The Eze Ekpeye Logbo III, His Imperial Majesty, Sir Amb. Kelvin Ngozi Anugwo Ph.D, CAN, FNIM, MNIMN, FCAI, DSSRS, AP, JP, has yesterday, January 29, brokered truce in the controversy rocking the Ekpeye Youth Congress (EYC) over tenure elongation which factionalized the body.

The Eze stated that he was not happy watching the body engage in litigations, as a result, he invited them in order to seek their permission to withdraw the case.

His words: ” I summoned you all to seek your permission to withdraw the case from court, and give my own impartial judgement.

” It’s unfair watching you engage yourselves in a legal battle over a minor issue.”

Eze Ekpeye Logbo III advised members of the EYC not to lose hope in life, but to pursue meaningful ventures, saying that he was not born with a silver spoon but strived
to make it in life .

Eze Anugwo also denied involvement in the killing of Ahoada Divisional Police Officer SP Bako Angbashim; adding that he was arrested and detained unjustly.

The Ekpeye Monarch showed the youths some evidence including letters he wrote to the Rivers State government and Commissioner of police in respect of the security challenges in Ekpeye kingdom, but all were swept under the carpet.

He emphatically stated that he was not only part of the arrangement that brought the late Angbashim to Ekpeye land but invested a huge amount of money to sustain his stay in the land; adding that he would soon address the people of Ekpeye on the issue.

Responding, the acting EYC president General Cheta Agbo gave his approval for the withdrawal of the case.

He however, requested that Eze Ekpeye Logbo should not delegate his chiefs or any sectional monarchs in Ekpeye kingdom to adjudicate on the matter except him.

Recall that the erstwhile EYC President General Comrade Bright Ite had filed a suit in a law Court bordering on the amendment of EYC Constitution and tenure extension which a certain group vehemently opposed him.

It was learnt that the agitating Youths decided to establish a parallel executive led by Cheta Agbo resulting in the litigation.
