Obi Ifechukwude Aninshi Okonjo II, the Obi of Ogwashi-Uku, and his convoy have survived an attack by cultists during their visit to Otulu Ogwashiku-Uku, Delta State, where he went to offer prayers.

The Obi, brother of Director-General of World Trade Organization, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and members of the Council of Ogwashi-Uku visited Otulu Ogwashi-Uku Friday, September 17, 2021. The visit was largely successful and the Obi met members of the community, prayed with them, and discussed them about the issues.

A statement from the palace of the Obi, signed by his Spokesperson, Prince Greg Okwumbu, said: “At the end of the visit and when the Obi was departing, cultists and thugs imported into Otulu who was aware of the visit attacked members of the entourage who were at the rear of the convoy. The thugs also attempted to forcefully seize a gun belonging to a law enforcement member who escorted the Obi on the visit.

“It is important to note that members of the press accompanied the Obi on the visit. Also, law enforcement agents from the Office of the Area Commander and the Brigade Command in Asaba were also there at the visit and witnessed everything that happened.

“The people who sponsored the thugs are known to us and will be brought to Justice.”
