*OVER 100 AMANUKE COMMUNITY DEMANDS RELEASE OF CROWNED TRADITIONAL RULER* *Over 100 persons from Amanuke community in Awka North Local Government Area (LGA) of Anambra State, on Monday, took to the streets to protest the arrest and detention of their monarch, Dennis Ezebuilo.* *Ezebuilo, crowned ruler by the community, has been pitted in a monarchy tussle with his cousin Alphonsus Ezebuilo, who was certified Igwe by the state government.* The protest was staged near Alex Ekwueme Square Awka, Anambra state capital. Ezebuilo was remanded in police custody on the order of Justice Hyeladzira Ajiya Nganjiwa of Awka Federal High Court following a case of alleged impersonation. *The protesters wielded placards that read, “Leadership is not by force, Amanuke is one with one king,’ ‘Igwe Dennis Is our crowned king of Amanuke Eri,’ ‘Amanuke stands with Igwe Dennis Ezebuilo'”* *Addressing journalists, the leader of the protesters, Nweke Nwachukwu, said they would never accept Alphonsus as Amanuke’s monarch until ‘Igwe’ Dennis is recognised or certified by government and allowed him to discharge his duties on the throne.* Also speaking, the woman leader of the community, Maria Nwoye, and the youth leader, Moses Akum, expressed shock over the arrest and detention of Igwe Dennis, insisting that he was not impersonatin rather he was accepted and crowned by both the young and the elders.
