The petition reads: “The Alor People’s Assembly (A.P.A.) executives are not aware of the planned mayhem and will never be in support any evil plan by any group of miscreants or their associates.

“We want to put the public on Notice that the group of people who have planned to storm the community on Saturday are not from Alor community.

“And we the people of Alor are calling on our amiable Executive Governor of Anambra, Chief (Dr) Willie Obiano (Akpokuedike -Aguleri), the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. John Abang, and the State Director, DSS to keep their eyes on the planned mayhem in our community on Saturday, 5th September, 2020.”

It was gathered that the traditional ruler of Alor was one of the monarchs suspended by the Anambra state government for traveling without permission to meet President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.

However, residents of Alor protested against the monarch and demanded that he be banished.

Recall that Okonkwo begged for forgiveness from Governor Obiano forty-eight hours after his suspension.

The monarch was quoted to have confessed his sins, asking the governor to forgive him. Okonkwo who hails from Idemili South local government area of Anambra state openly apologised to Obiano and the traditional rulers’ council for violating certain rules guiding the operation of monarchs in the state.

Other monarchs, however, insisted the governor has no right to meddle in their fundamental rights in any way as custodians of the people.
