Group Gives Eze Ndigbo 7 Days To Leave Calabar by AtikuNetwork: 7:00am On Apr 02
A group, Nka Ikemesit Mkparawa Essien Efik Duob-Eba, reportedly domiciled in the palace of the Obong of Calabar, has given the Head of Igbo community in Calabar, 7 days to leave the town or face consequences.

DAILY POST reports that the order addressed to the leader of the Ndibo Community, Eze Ndigbo, was contained in a statement issued on Thursday.

The statement signed by the Chairman, Ekpo Ekeng, Vice Chairman, Adim Ekpenyong Adim, Secretary, Ekpenyong Bassey Ekpenyong and Assistant Secretary, Christy Edem Bassey Edem, was made available to DAILY POST.

The group lamented the insult allegedly meted on the Obong of Calabar by the Eze Ndigbo.

The group accused the Head of Igbo community of claiming to be the Obong of Calabar whereas he is not.

“For insulting the Obong of Calabar, calling yourself or making yourself the Obong of Calabar, when Obong of Calabar is on the throne we give you 7 days to leave the town,” the group fumed

It was learnt that the incident allegedly occurred during the award given to Innoson Motors on the 27th March, 2021, at the University of Calabar.

Oh wow.

Is Calabar too a no-man's-land?

Why does this remind me of the way the Fulanis have colonized the Hausas?

This is just a tip of the iceberg should SS decide to go with Biafra.

Anyway, your highness, Obong of Calabar, do what the Deji of Akure did a few years ago.

Even if there is no king in igbo land, igbo should learn to respect the Kings of other tribe and their culture.

North: We give you 14 days
West: We are tired of you
South South : we give you 7 days

This means you need to check your character, when you are in Calabar, you behave like them and respect their culture.

I thought Ohanaeze Ndigbo has ban anybody from answering such title outside Igbo land.

Ndigbo and Title self just to compliment their wealth and ego.

A mechanic will be called Engr
A road side chemist called Dr.
Politicians and PhD. Even Odumeje get PhD grin
Eze Ndigbo na Malaysia grin
The students are not left out, you will hear Eze UNN, Eze MOUAU grin

The only title wey them never abuse na Prof. and Barrister. if not, school teachers for answer ram.

Enough of all these petty fight and scramble for relevance in the South! The more we argue among ourselves, the easier it is for the evil agenda of the Northerners to spread. I don't know how an Igbo man will openly call himself the obong of Calabar in the university of Calabar, I'm guessing there's a misunderstanding that can be handled easily without giving quit notice, unless there's an underlying issue. The people that should be getting quit notice anywhere in the South now are the fulanis

Even though history has shown that Calabar people don't play/joke when it comes to their Obong, they should forgive the Eze guy. He was probably high and drunk.

How can eze ndigbo a title that don't come from state gov, staff of office but rather his coronated by the obong of calabar suddenly claim to be the obong.
At no point in time, did lgbos in calabar gather to appoint one of their own as king, rather one well connected man approach the obong to coronate him as eze ndigbo. Therefore the obong who coronated the man has the right to sack him, afterall the obong did not consult lgbo people to inquire if they want a king.
This iz a non issue and does not concern lgbos. Let obong and his friend who he coronated sort out their wahala

i think Igbo people should stop this idea of having eze ndigbo out side of ibo land. you can't be competing with other people king in their domain.

Mr ignorant, if you don't know the genesis of a problem state out of it. I did not say eze ndigbo does not exist. I said the one in calabar was a sole decision between one wealthy man to approach the obong to coronate him .At no point in time did lgbos gather to appoint one of their own as king. So don't drag lgbos into the matter, leave obong and his friend to settle

The title is misleading.

The title makes it seem as if the order was to all Igbos to leave Calabar, where as the content said the order was to the eze in particular.

Not surprised though.

I don't knw why people are shouting that why are Igbo people having eze outside Igbo land. This is what every tribe do. So Wats the big deal cos it's Igbo.

Just look at the attached pix and tell me what it means.

Obong opposes Eze Ndigbo in C’ River



By Bassey Inyang

Correspondent, Calabar



The Obong of Calabar and grand patriarch of Efik kingdom, Edidem Nta Elijah Henshaw, has decreed against the plan by a section of Igbo people to create the office of Eze Ndigbo in Calabar or any part of Cross River State.

The monarch said the plan is an attempt to deliberately instigate communal chaos between members of the host community and Igbo resident in the state.

Henshaw said the move is a subtle way of conveying a message of disloyalty or divided loyalty to his person and office as Obong and to other traditional rulers in the state.

He made the declaration on Tuesday while addressing leaders and members of the Igbo community in Calabar that paid him a courtesy call in his palace.

To emphasise his descent to the plan, Henshaw ordered Emmanuel Ezenwenyi, a Calabar based businessman, to stop parading himself as ‘Eze Ndigbo (elect) Cross River State’.

The Efik monarch also ordered Ezenwenyi to stop using the term palace of Ezeigbo (elect) in his correspondence.

Most of the Me-Etubon (kingmakers) that were at the palace also echoed the sentiment of the Obong and declared that the move which was an indication of divided loyalty by Ezenwenyi who is an Ada Idagha ke Efik Eburutu will not be tolerated.

Both the Obong and the kingmakers said they had to react because Ezenwenyi had already written a letter to Governor Donald Duke, seeking government recognition as the Eze Ndigbo the state.

Henshaw said such a practice would never be accepted and advised Duke to disregard the letter.

The monarch said the only office recognised by his palace is the President-General of Igbo Community in Calabar, being held by Fidelis O. Onyebueke.



He warned that the Efik people would not accept the creation of a monarchy in Calabar or any part of the state by the Igbo or any guest community.



He said a similar attempt to create an ‘Oba of Calabar’ by the Yoruba people failed because the Efik fiercely resisted it.

The Obong, however, urged law abiding and peace loving members of the Igbo community to go about their normal businessed, as they would always enjoy the hospitable culture of their hosts.



Onyebueke, who spoke on behalf of the Igbo community Calabar, pledged the continued loyalty of Igbos living in Calabar to the Obong.

The president general noted that the reign of Henshaw has engendered social-re-engineering and psychological rebirth in the people, just as the period has witnessed the creation of an enabling environment for commerce and tourism to thrive in Calabar.

Onyebueke used the forum to appeal to the monarch and Efiks to provide more lands for members of the Igbo community who intend to build houses and reside in Calabar.

Apparently in veiled reference to the Eze Ndigbo controversy, Onyebueke used the forum to dissociate the Igbo community from the move.

His words: “Let us here and now assure the Obong and indeed the people of Calabar that our administration under my leadership has no room for mundane activities that are capable of jeopardizing the security of Ndigbo in this state and breach the peace.

“This administration therefore dissociates itself from any move directly or indirectly by any person or group of persons trying to challenge the sacred traditional institution of Cross River State, because our primary pursuit in Calabar is commerce. We are responsible citizens who respect the diverse cultures of our host communities. We hereby pledge our unalloyed loyalty to the Obong and indeed the people of Calabar”.
