The Igala kingdom was founded by Abutu-Eje in the 16th century. The kingdom was ruled by nine high officials called the Igala Mela who are custodians of the sacred Earth shrine.
The throne of the IGALA kingdom is so revered that it was amongst the first throne to be honored with a first-class status by the Nigerian government.
Those very conversant with history can tell how dreadful the throne was judging by the exploits of the GREAT AMEH OBONI (Ogbaikolo ototolo-Oli’ki ma bun ki’a ro tulatulaka)
The IGALA THRONE is a sacred artifact of the over four million IGALA sons and daughters across the globe and signifies the bond of unity amongst the IGALA-MELA dynasty.
It is believed to hold a power of unwavering unity geared towards peace and harmony.
No man born of a woman is expected to molest the significance of a throne of this magnitude no matter how politically and economically placed you are in the society.
To have one small boy sitting on the same chair with the ATTAH of IGALA who is believed to be the custodian of the throne described above is an insult on the whole IGALA race
The fury of our ancestors does not delay in delivering judgement on such cultural subjugation and if this sounds strange, you can as well ask questions.
For the record, the ATTAH’S throne is not a political stage where politicians can exhibit their drama and rudely uncultured attitude.
Therefore, an unreserved public apology is required by the actor/actors of this shameful act after which custodians of the throne be consulted for cleansing if not what awaits the perpetrators is bigger than what meets the eyes.
No be everything wey look like rope pikin suppose to the play with.
