The government of Kogi State has issued a formal inquiry to the traditional leader, Ohimege Igu, Konto-Nkarfe, Alhaji Abdulrazaq Kotofor. The query, dated November 22, 2023, and referenced as MLGCA/CHI/S/P/359/1/36, was signed by Salami Deedat, the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs. According to the document, the monarch is alleged to have participated in partisan politics during the recent gubernatorial election, prompting concerns about the security of the region.

The query strongly criticized the royal father’s involvement in politics, highlighting that his actions led to a crisis resulting in the tragic death of a young woman and injuries to several others. The government expressed disappointment in the monarch’s conduct, considering it a stark contradiction to the expected role of a respected royal figure.

The letter demanded a written explanation within 48 hours, indicating that disciplinary measures might be taken if a satisfactory response is not provided.

It remains unclear whether the traditional leader has responded to the inquiry at the time of this report.
