It urged those parading themselves with the title to desist The trouble within the Ohaneze Ndigbo seems to have extended to other leadership spheres as the Olubadan-in-council has declared the title of Eze Ndigbo of Igbos in Ibadan and Oyo as illegal. Vanguard reports that in a letter signed by one Oladepo Abiodun Esq and addressed to the president general, Ohaneze Ndigbo, it described the attempt to hold the title as chaotic.
Alozie however who has been parading himself as the Eze Ndigbo argued that a hig court judgment had given him the authority. “We had informed the whole world in the past of a high court judgment over the Igbo leadership tussle in Ibadan and Oyo State which favoured Dr. Alex Anozie and our association, ACDA, affiliate of Ohaneze worldwide. “ He said: “The State High Court in Ibadan had ruled on the 18th of February 2014 which no other court has vacated, that only me, Dr Alex Alozie should be paraded as Eze Ndigbo of Ibadan and Oyo state.
” He further clarified that the title of Ezendigbo, Onyedu Ndigbo, Onyeisindigbo or Ochiigbo all mean the same thing in Igbo expression and that he may be referred to in any of those mentioned Igbo titles. Meanwhile, more problems seem to be brewing in the already troubled foremost Igbo group, Ohaneze Ndigbo as some leaders of the group have lashed at Governor Rochas Okorocha for stepping into the crisis.
