Monarch condemns attack on Justice Odili’s house


The Eze Esara Nyerisi Mbam of Esara Kingdom in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, Eze Jobson Utchay has joined other Nigerians, to condemn the recent protest at the Abuja home of Justice Mary Odili over the Supreme Court judgement on the Bayelsa State governorship election. Eze Utchay who briefed newsmen on the issue at his palace in Elimgbu said that the situation portends grave danger to the nation’s democracy. He said the action of the protesters was not only condemnable but capable of pitching the people of Bayelsa against Justice Mary Odili and other Justices of the Supreme Court. The traditional ruler who urged the protesters to know that Justice Mary Odili is a daughter of Ikwerre and Rivers State also urged them to remember the fraternal relationship between Rivers and Bayelsa states. The monarch called on the Amanyanabo of Twon Brass and former Military Governor of Rivers State King Alfred Diete-Spiff and elder statesman, Edwin Clark to call the protesters to order, adding that this was necessary to protect and preserve the good relationship between the two states. Eze Utchay also commended Governor Wike for the ongoing massive urban renewal programme noting that the gesture had given Port Harcourt a facelift and urged for consideration of Rumukwurushi and Igwuruta junctions for flyover projects. The monarch urged President Buhari to liaise with former Heads of State and Presidents to ensure security in the nation; while the Service Chiefs must redouble their efforts to fight insurgency in the country.
