There was confusion in Ekitiafor, Abba town of Imo state, following the mysterious death of King Timothy Uzoka, 80, who was to be officially crowned King of Ekitiafor Abba in Nwangele Local Government of the state.
Details showed he died in his home, as preparations were in top gears for his official coronation.
According to information gathered, the deceased died 48 hours before being officially inaugurated as the Eze Ohazurume of Ekitiafor Abba.
Describing his death as unfortunate, the President General of Ekitiafor Abba Development Union, Bath Uzoma said, “The death of Eze Uzoka, Igwe Ohazurumee, the Ekiti of Ekitiafor is rather unfortunate. He has been a long- time advocate for the creation of Ekitiafor autonomous community, since 2000.
“We had been very close associates in that struggle and just after all the ups and downs, the turbulence and the undulating terrain we went through at the time, two or three days for him to enjoy the fruits of his labour, the Lord called him.
“He is the head of this community, a prominent personality and we feel aggrieved at his death, though we cannot question God because He alone knows why it happened at this time,” Uzoma said.
