Nnamdi Kanu Allegedly Committed Taboo In Anambra Community, Chased From Palace

Speaking to journalists on Thursday in Awka, the Anambra state capital, the personal assistant to the monarch, Ifeanyi Onyesoh, said Nnamdi Kanu and his supporters attempted to force their way into the palace.

He said: “They tried to forcefully open the entrance gate of the palace and it was this unruly conduct that made the traditional ruler to telephone the security agents who responded promptly and dispersed Kanu and his supporter.”

The personal assistant further stated that Kanu and Uchechi, his wife along with other supporters violated the tradition of the town during their visit on July 19.

Onyesoh added that 12 young persons had sought for permission on behalf of the IPOB leader a day before the visit to the traditional ruler.

“I was the person that received them and so I told them to go and come back with a written letter so that they will get official reply from the palace since the delegation looked unusual, in that there was no titled person among them.

“At this point, they all left and what we saw the next day was Kanu visiting Nri community with a huge crowd of his supporters.

“He (Kanu) went straight to the house of one Chief Shadrack Mbanefo, a subject of the traditional ruler of Nri.

“The feelers we later got, was that the said Mbanefo claimed he handed over the `Offo Nri ’, (symbol of royalty) to Kanu, and even allowed Kanu to visit the historic ‘Ohianwehi forest’ revered as ‘forest of life’ by Igbo tradition.

“This forest is believed to be the place the first burnt offering was offered by the Jewish Igbo ancestors when they migrated from Israel more than 2,000 years ago.”

Onyesoh further stated that the people of Nri consider Nnamdi Kanu and his supporters’ conduct a taboo because no high profile person has ever visited the land without meeting first with the traditional ruler “let alone a sacred place without the knowledge of the ruler.”

He added: “It is a taboo in Nri and equally against the Anambra state traditional rulers’ council law for a high profile visitor to visit a community without first paying homage to the traditional ruler,” he said.

“The people of Nri and her traditional ruler are not against Nnamdi Kanu and his agitation/aspiration but what we cannot take is for Kanu to come and mess up the Nri culture and tradition under whatever motive.

“The community will drag him to customary court to ensure that nobody else gives such insult to the community and its heritage.

“If Kanu wants a title, Eze Nri is not aware of such aspiration.

“If Kanu indeed met with anybody and claimed he was given `Offo Nri’, it means he is seeking the title through the back door and for the title he claimed was given to him by `Adama’ (Mbanefo ), a servant to Eze Nri, is a nullity.

“Nri is the ancestral home of all Igbo people and for him to visit Nri in the manner he did means he has no knowledge of Igbo tradition and culture.

“So, he must first study Igbo tradition and culture and properly be advised before he misleads himself.”
