Meanwhile, barely 12 years after major communal crisis claimed the lives of six persons and 12 buildings razed, the oil rich Okpai Community in Ndokwa East Local Government Area of Delta State is at the verge of another chaos as the authority of the monarch, His Royal Majesty ( HRM) Goldring Ugbome 11, is being challenged by some of his subjects who accused him of dictatorship with a two -day ultimatum to rescind the decisions taken concerning the composition of the newly constituted Community Development Committee (CDC) or face the consequences of his actions.
Chiedu Ofulu, one of the leaders in the community in a press release made available to Journalists said. “We are set to do battle with the monarch because he refused to carry us along, another bone of contention is one of the clauses that empowers the monarch to own 20 percent of whatever is accruable to the oil rich Kingdom that is hosting the multi billion dollars Okpai gas plant, We are pleading with the Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa to intervene to avert another blood bath, especially with the greedy activities of the monarch at present.”
