Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu has warned those nursing the intention of coronating one Sarki Shehu Bello 11 as the Emir of Aba Emirate Council to desist from such or face the full weight of the law.

The Governor said there is no recourse to Government in this rumoured coronation.

Governor Ikpeazu in a release signed by the Secretary to the Government Government, Barr. Chris Ezem therefore directed the immediate cancellation of the proposed illegal coronation, insisting that there is nothing like Aba Emirate Council in the State.


The release added, “Government further warns all residents in the state especially those resident in Aba to be law abiding.

“Law enforcement agents have been directed to swing into action and ensure that no such event capable of breaching the existing peace in the state takes place in Aba or any part of the State.”
