Speaking with the press, it was revealed to us that since the demise of the former traditional ruler, Late Eze Dr. Oliver Okorowu on the 3rd day of April in the year 2018 till date,no one has assumed the traditional stool to replace him.
This has in no doubt affected the development and progress of the community in the area where they said have a lot of natural resources to include raw Oil and Gas flowing like the biblical honey in Izombe, Oguta/Ohaji/Egbema area.
Besides, the traditional prime minister of the area, Late Chief Jonathan Ogbonna was in working harmony with Igwe BENJAMINE OBIOHA while he was the community government council CGC secretary in the area.

While awaiting the official declaration of his EZESHIP, Igwe BENJAMINE OBIOHA has been of great help to his people where he said has impacted alot on humanity.
