His Royal Highness Eze Victor Ijeoma, the Isiudo 1 of Isiozi Akah has named Chief Declan Ibezimako Dire, Oji Ulo Eme Ogo. The monarch made this pronouncement Tuesday 6th September 2022 during the opening an dedication of a bungalow built for Mrs Adaku Nnabuo by Chief Dire who is now an Oji Ulo Eme Ogo.
It can be recalled that on December 8, 2021, one of the children of Mrs Adaku Nnabuo who is a widow was killed by stray bullets when armed robbers and some soldiers engaged in a crossfire. The poor girl who was still in primary school was on her way to school when the ugly incident occurred. She was too small to understand what armed robbery attack or what a shootout was. She consequently fell victim of stray bullet as she lay dead on the spot.
During the event, Eze Ijeoma extolled the virtues of Chief Dire and eventually described him as a big asset to the entire Umuaka Municipal Council of Imo State.
The monarch in his speech, displayed his rare wisdom when he consoled Mrs Adaku Nnabuo and reminded her that God in heaven was not asleep when the incident happened. He went further and pleaded with the woman to remain focused as God has wiped her tears away through the new Oji Ulo Eme Ogo and his kind gesture.
The event did not go without some emotional outbursts of tears. When Mrs Nnabuo was called to make an acceptance speech, she took the microphone and paused for about 5 seconds. She did not know what to say. She tried to speak again but she remained speechless. Suddenly, uncontrollable tears enveloped her and the microphone was taken away from her. At this juncture, Eze Ijeoma announced that nobody should worry her again because she has spoken with tears.
The main event began. All the Isiozi Akah chiefs who were present at the event, together with Eze Ijeoma, two priests in attendance and some members of Nnabuo family went for the cutting of tape to declare the house dedicated. The two priests prayed and HRH Eze Victor Ijeoma did the tape cutting and shouts of praises to God rented the air. The woman who is now the latest landlady in town ushered the people into the house who went in and admired the new house.
