Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, Thursday, directed the police to arrest individuals, who parades themselves as traditional rulers without government recognition.

Uduaghan who gave the order in Isiokolo, Ethiope East Local Government Area of the state during the presentation of Staff of Office to the Ovie of Agbon clan, HRM Ogurime-Rime, Ukori I, frowned at situations where individuals ascribe kingship to themselves, especially in Otu-Jeremi and Oghara areas.

“Except you are recognised by the state government, you cannot be called a traditional ruler. If you are calling yourself a traditional ruler, you will be arrested and prosecuted.”

The governor urged the youths of Agbon clan to shun criminal activities, stating that only persons who have been recognised by the state government as traditional rulers should be seen as such by the people, .

“Our youths should not use criminals in the society as role models. Why do you want to be popular by carrying out criminal activities? There is no criminal who has ended well. This kingdom has a very good name and I appeal to our youths not to give this kingdom a bad name,” Uduaghan said.
