Igala Kingdom Gets New Attah

A new paramount ruler for Igala kingdom traditional council has emerged. He is Mr. Idakwo Micheal Ameh – the son of the former Attah of Igala, late Ameh Oboni.  The appointment of Mr. Idakwo was announced by the Igala Traditional Council.

The new ruler emerged after he was unanimously elected by the Igala Mela kingmakers and the Achadu Ata.

The acting Head of Igala area traditional council, who is also the Ejeh of Ankpa, Alhaji Yakubu Amodu said the nominee of the council has already been submitted to Governor Idris Wada for ratification, stressing that all documents pertaining to the nominee was before the governor for endorsement and pronouncement.

The stool became vacant after the death of late Alhaji Aliyu Obaje in July 2012, which prompted the king makers and Achadu Ata to commence the process of selection which finally elected Idakwo Ameh Oboni from the Ocholi lineage as the 22nd Ata Igala.
