Traditional Ruler

As the dust raised by what is described as defamatory publication in both national and local newspapers as well as online news blogs by one Adolphus Osuji against HRH Eze Josiah Osuji, the Traditional Paramount Ruler of Obi Mbieri Autonomous Community in Mbaitoli rages on, the children of the said paramount traditional Ruler have issued a 7 days ultimatum to the said Adolphus Osuji to retract the said publication and an unreserved apology tendered therein.
In a letter through their counsel Barr Ikechukwu Nwaopara dated 30th August, 2020 and addressed to the said Adolphus Osuji and one Mr. Onwu Jesford, the children of the said paramount Traditional Ruler frowned at the said publications by Adolphus Osuji against their father wherein their father was described as a “foster son” of Osuji family alongside other serious false, baseless and unsubstantiated allegations therein by the said Onwu Jesford. The Letter further stated that the said publications are defamatory and the family cannot tolerate such defamatory publication especially considering the status of their father as the Traditional Ruler of Obi Mbieri Autonomous Community in Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State, Nigeria. The letter warned that failure of the said Adolphus Osuji and Onwu Jesford to retract the said publication and tender an unreserved apology, a serious legal action shall be instituted against them to serve as a deterrent.
It would be recalled that on 23rd and 24th August, 2020, the said Adolphus Osuji made publications in daily post.ng, the Big Truth Newspaper, Imo Breaking News, the community Watchdog Newspaper and Statesman among others, accusing HRH Eze Josiah Osuji of stopping their mother’s burial with armed military men and over 20 thugs. The said Adolphus Osuji further described the said Traditional Ruler as a foster son which sparked off the ongoing outrage in the Osuji dynasty.
