Government Declares Curfew In Ute Kingdom

The Ika Northeast Local Government Council of Delta State has imposed curfew in Ute kingdoms.

declaration was announced by the Executive Chairman of the Local Government Area, Hon. Barr. Victor Ebonka, in a press briefing held on Monday, November 23, 2020 at his office in Owa-Oyibu.

According to the Chairman, the curfew was with the approval of the State Government and affects mostly the Ute-Ukpu kingdom following the unruly behaviour of her youths wherein they maliciously damaged properties and also threatening the life of their king, chiefs and traditional institution, owing to their fetish belief on the recent incident of strange disease which has claimed lots of lives.

His words, “The government attention was attracted by the impediment, and in it’s caring manner, immediately moved in and carried out detailed investigation to unravel the cause of the strange disease. The investigation, as ordered by His Excellency, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, revealed that, the strange disease was yellow fever.

I must appreciate the Government of Delta State who promptly reported the case to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the National Primary Health Care Development who promptly deployed their support team.

The State Government in its responsive and pro-active nature, timeously deployed Health Officials to the Local Government Area. The combined team of the State and Local Government Health Officials in collaboration with international agencies, carried out immediate yellow fever immunization throughout the local government aimed at ameliorating, mitigating and/or out rightly eradicating the effects of the disease.

Surprisingly, some of the youths in their fetish belief that the cause of the strange death in Ute Kingdom, particularly Ute-Okpu was not yellow fever, have taken laws into their hands by continually disturbing the peace of the kingdom wherein they maliciously/ wantonly damaged the palace, Ute-Okpu Grammar school, Area Customary Court, Ute-Okpu Police Outpost and the Market. This is an affront to the right thinking members of the community and the Government.

The youths for now have become continually unruly to the extent of threatening the life of His Royal Majesty, The Obi of Ute-Okpu, his Chiefs and the entire traditional institution. Various entreaties to them aimed at curbing these excesses seem not to be yielding the desired result.”However, the curfew had commences since Monday from 6pm to 6am, until further notice.

Meanwhile, Hon. Barr. Ebonka enjoined all citizens to comply with the Government directive as the law enforcement agents will not hesitate to arrest defaulters of the order.
