The Oriendu autonomous community of Ohuhu Clan in Umuahia North LGA, Abia State, has prohibited the use of weaponry or any dangerous weapon during the 2024 Iri Egwu cultural festival, which would be hosted at the Oriendu community market square.

The restriction was stated in a telegram signed by Oriendu’s traditional ruler, HRM Eze Philip Ajomiwe, and made available to journalists.

The declaration, which was supported by the Council of Chiefs in the Oriendu autonomous community, stated that the community is a peaceful community and would not accept any sort of violence during the Iri Egwu festival.

It also promised the invited in-laws, friends, and other guests of a tranquil setting, as is typical in the neighborhood.

“The Oriendu autonomous community, as a peace-loving community, will not tolerate any form of violence or the display of arms and other dangerous weapons.” “Be careful,” the traditional ruler and his cabinet cautioned.

Mr Towechi Izukwem, an Ohuhu Clan teenager, responded to the incident by saying the royal father and his government were correct in taking the measure to avoid a breakdown in law and order.

The Ebantel recalls that Governor Alex Otti has repeatedly directed monarchs and other community leaders in the State to ensure that their domains are free of criminal activity of any kind, warning that any royal father found allowing such behavior will face the consequences.
