I have never asked Eze Igbo to leave Calabar — Obong



THE Obong of Calabar, Edidem Ekpo Abasi Otu V, has denied claims that he has given the Eze Igbo Cross River, Chief Emmanuel Ezenwenyi seven days to leave Calabar.

In a press statement by the Etuboms Traditional Rulers Council of the Palace of Obong of Calabar signed by His Highness B .O., B Duke made available to Vanguard, the Obong said the letter sent to the Eze Igbo giving him seven days to leave Calabar is an attempt to incite the public and lead to the breakdown of law and order.

‘Our attention has been drawn to a letter credited to a group, Nka Ikemesit Mkparawa Essien Efik Duoeba giving an individual- Eze Igbo seven days to leave Calabar if he does not apologise for ‘ insulting the Obong’ during the visit of a dignitary to him”.
