Obi of Ubulu-ukwu, Chukwuka Noah Akaeze

Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leadership has congratulated the young and newly crowned Obi of Ubulu-ukwu, Chukwuka Noah Akaeze 1, for successfully stepping into the shoes of his ebullient father, HRM Edward Ofulue III, who served Biafra meritoriously well while he lived.
The congratulatory message, which came from a top Biafran intelligence officer, operating in the Delta State area of Biafraland, simply known as Holy-eyes, said the message was necessary to show appreciation to the young king and his family, regarding all the good works their father did for Biafra restoration.
Holy-eyes said even though Biafra required nothing more from the family, since their father did more than enough through his numerous assignments, that the congratulatory message was necessary to show that Biafra never forgets those who served it well.

The young, 15 years old Chking was crowned, and on Friday, February 19, was presented to the Anoicha South Traditional Rulers Council, at the Aniocha South traditional council secretariat in Ogwashi-Uku. He was earlier presented to the members of the royal family before his presentation to the council of elders at the palace.
The ceremony which attracted prominent citizens of the kingdom, including the member representing Aniocha/Oshimili constituency at the House of Representatives, Mrs. Onyemaechi Mrakpor and the President-General of Ubulu-Uku Development Union, Jones Ofunne, the chairman of Aniocha South council, Mr. Isaac Anwuzia, traditional chiefs and title holders in the kingdom, religious leaders, women, youths and other stakeholders of the community, became a good beginning from a sad end for the people of the community.

With his middle name as Noah, which sounds like “welcome” in Igbo language, many Ubulu-uku people expressed the believe that his crowning as king would indeed be to them, the coming someone that will play the roles Noah played in the Bible.
It is instructive to remember that his father was murdered by Nigerian security agents masquerading as Fulani herdsmen on the evening of January 5, 2016. They kidnapped him along Obior/Igbodo road while he was riding in his Land Cruiser Jeep with a young Christian aide. His dead body was discovered on January 20.
The reason for his kidnap and murder by Buhari’s men was not known by many Biafrans, but the leadership of Biafra knew that it was because of the roles he played in Biafra restoration programme, mainly the worldwide protests that have taken the world by storm.

When Buhari learnt of his noble contributions it, he was incensed and listed him among Biafran leadership he had to eliminate. Unknown to him, the late Ubulu-uku had already concluded his assignment more than a year before then.
