The royal father was suspended for 30 days following some recommendations from the Board of Inquiry set up by the Abia State government to investigate alleged misconducts by some traditional rulers in Abia State.

In a press release made available, weekend, signed by Abia State commissioner for local government and chieftaincy affairs, Uzor Nwachukwu, the government said that the monarch would remain suspended from office until he complies with the recommendations of the Board of Inquiry within 30 days.
