FUT- THERE was pandemonium at Efut Kingdom, Calabar South Local Government Area, Cross River State, when three freshly dug graves were bizarrely discovered that the palace of the newly installed Muri Munene of Efut and Paramount Ruler of Calabar South, HRM (Prof) Itam Hogan.

The new monarch took over the monarchy recently after a protracted succession crisis that rocked the kingdom for a decade without a traditional ruler.

NDV learned that villagers, who went to clear the palace, sealed off a decade ago, because of the imbroglio discovered the mysterious graves considered to be desecration of the traditional stool.

The villagers were not happy with the pollution and have called for cleansing to enable the new king take over the palace and effectively commence running of the kingdom.

Meanwhile, investigation was on to discover perpetrators of the abominable act.

Monarch confirms sacrilege, says I won’t be unnerved

HRM Hogan, who confirmed the sacrilege, said: 

“After I was officially recognized because I had already been recognized by my people and God, I had to send my subjects to clear the palace, which was sealed off many years ago due to the crisis. In the process, my people discovered three fresh human graves.”

“I do not know the aim of the people who buried those persons in that palace and I do not know what they hoped to achieve, but be that as it may, I am not afraid, they cannot scare me with things like that. I am a man of faith and I believe in the Almighty God who has been by shield and He brought us this far, He would surely finish the job.

“Whoever they buried in that place will not deter me from doing what I am supposed to do for my people, which are to bring growth and development. Calabar –South has suffered a lot of backwardness, retrogression and all that have come to an end,” the monarch declared.

…warns clan heads, chiefs, village heads on land deals

His words: “It is a new era and I have warned all the clan heads, chiefs, community leaders and village heads to desist from double-dealing on land because this is the major reason why there has always been crisis.  Anyone found wanting or caught in this act will face the full weight of our laws.”
