All is not well in Idoma land, Benue State as Hausa/Fulani community set to install a Sardauna of Otukpo in the state.
Here is the Deputy Governor’s reaction:
RE: CORONATION OF SARDUANA OF OTUKPO.
The attention of His Excellency, the Deputy Governor of Benue State, Engr. Benson Abounu has been drawn to the proposed installation of one Bala Bello Muhammad as Sarduana of Otukpo, widely circulated on the social media.
He has reached out to the Leader of Hausa Community in Otukpo, Alhaji Mamuda and informed him that there is nothing like SARDAUNA of OTUKPO in the Benue State Chieftaincy Laws of 2016. Accordingly, the Deputy Governor directed Alhaji Mamuda to call off the intended coronation which he accepted to comply forthwith.
This is for the information of the General public.
