  • The Ekpoma Traditional Council, Edo State on Tuesday disowned Chief Dogwo Ebiredelu, who was arrested at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, for human trafficking.


    The council said Ebiredelu was not a chief or traditional ruler in the area.


    Ebiredelu, who was accosted by men of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Lagos State Command, with two ladies, Mrs. Queen Ebiredu and Miss Egharevba Omozuwa, on their way to Turkey, reportedly claimed being the monarch of Emuhi, one of the 12 towns in Epkoma.


    The Onogie of Ekpoma, His Majesty, A. E. Abumere, who is also the Vice-Chairman of the Edo State Council of Traditional Rulers and Chiefs, in a statement, described Ebiredelu as an impostor.


    In the statement endorsed by the Secretary to the Onogie-in-Council, Chief W. I. Ebohon and Chief Michael Inegbedion, the council said that Onogie remained the only authority that can create and confer chieftaincy titles in Ekpoma, saying Ebiredelu by his conduct brought disrepute to traditional institution in Edo State


    The statement said, “The conduct of this impostor has soiled the name and dignity of the Edo State traditional institution. It is even more agonising to hear him boast of a diplomatic passport obtained from the Federal Government of Nigeria.”
