Anambra Monarch Dies Seven Days After Gov Obiano Lifted His Suspension


His Royal Majesty Eze Dr. Nkeli Kelly Nzekwe, traditional ruler of Igbariam kingdom of Anam­bra State has been declared dead from an unknown illness.

Eze Nzekwe, who was one of the three traditional rulers reinstated after seven months of suspension by Governor Wil­lie Obiano was said to have died on Thursday, January 7 and was buried according to traditional rites.

He was among 12 tradition­al rulers who visited Aso Rock Abuja allegedly to report Gov­ernor Obiano to President Mu­hammadu Buhari.

Following the politics that trailed the visit, Eze Nzekwe was among rulers suspended and was only reinstated on January 1, an act that was con­sidered a New Year gift.
