The convoy of Ifechukwude Aninshi Okonjo II, Obi of Ogwashi-Uku, has been attacked by hoodlums in Delta state.
The Delta monarch is the brother to Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, director-general of the World Trade Organisation (WTO).
It was gathered that the incident happened on Friday after the monarch’s visit to Otulu Ogwashi-Uku community to discuss some important issues with the community members.
According to Greg Okwumbu, spokesperson of the palace, when the monarch was departing the community, thugs attacked his entourage, who were at the rear of the convoy.
The thugs also forcefully seized a gun belonging to one of the law enforcement agents who escorted the monarch.
The palace said those who sponsored the thugs are known to them and that justice will be served.
“At the end of the visit and when the Obi was departing, cultists and thugs imported into Otulu, who were aware of the visit attacked members of the entourage who were at the rear of the convoy,” the statement reads.

“The thugs also attempted to forcefully seize a gun belonging to a law enforcement member who escorted the Obi on the visit.
“It is important to note that members of the press accompanied the Obi on the visit. Also, law enforcement agents from the office of the area commander and the brigade command in Asaba were also there at the visit and witnessed everything that happened.
“The people who sponsored the thugs are known to us and will be brought to justice.”
