Delta community seeks state government's assistance over kingship tussle

Mon Jan 13th, 2020 - Delta

The people of Oyede Community in Isoko North Council Area of Delta State have appealed to the state government to assist them in averting looming anarchy in the community, lamenting that a group is bent on disrupting its gerontocracy system.

Insisting that the group has been making provocative moves through some influential persons to alter their culture and tradition, as well as the resolutions of their December 2019 National Conference resolutions, they vowed to defend their traditional system to the later.

Speaking to The Guardian at Oleh, headquarters of Isoko South Council Area, President of Oyede Development Union (ODU), Bishop Kingsley Okodhi, said they had endured enough troubles from the regent and were determined to return to gerontocracy.
