The Abia State government has suspended Eze Edward Ebere Eule, the traditional ruler of Azumini Ndoki in Ukwa East LGA, on account of suspected inappropriate conduct.

He has been instructed to promptly provide an account of N8 million in community power payments that were purportedly put in a bank account.

As a result of recommendations made by the Board of Inquiry, which the Abia State government established to look into claims of malfeasance by certain traditional rulers in the state, the royal father was placed under 30-day suspension.

The government announced that the ruler will stay suspended from office unless he complies with the recommendations of the Board of Inquiry within 30 days in a press statement that was made public over the weekend and signed by Uzor Nwachukwu, the commissioner for local government and chieftaincy affairs for Abia State.

The commissioner asserts that the Board of Inquiry also gave the king an order to promptly reverse the dissolution of any unions, groups, or organisations that he had purportedly carried out without following the proper procedures.

Recall that in January 2024, the State government removed Eze Kanu Nwa Kanu, the traditional ruler of Ibom Isii in Arochukwu LGA, based on the recommendations of the Board of Inquiry, which the State government established to look into petitions filed against certain traditional rulers in the State.

Eze Kanu Nwa Kanu was allegedly involved in misconduct, according to the State government.
