His Royal Majesty Ajuwe, Samson Owhe, Ogugu 1, the Osuivie of Agbarho Kingdom in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State, who was disrobed and chased out of the throne by rival group in the kingdom has been allegedly billed to return to his throne.

But some chiefs, elders, women and youths of Agbarho Kingdom in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State on Wednesday have embarked on a peaceful protest against alleged move to return dethroned monarch, Chief Samson Ogugu back to the throne.

Congress gathered that the monarch some times on Sunday morning of December 2, 2018, was invaded by armed youths and he was dethroned and chased away from the palace.

The incident took place barely one year after he was presented Staff of Office by the Delta State government, precisely on Monday, November 6, 2017.

It was gathered that the monarch has been exiled for the past 3years.

A dependable source said the monarch has been ordered to return to his throne by Delta state government.

But the protesters led by the third kingmaker of Agbarho Kingdom, Chief Liberty Evwen Emaka insisted that Chief Samson Ogugu has been disrobed and dethroned and can’t be reinstated.

The protesters maintained that the decision of the state government was against the collective position of the community and can’t be accepted.

However, the State Security Council meeting which was held on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, in Asaba, the Delta State capital, had allegedly instructed Chief William Onokpite, who has been parading himself as the new monarch to vacate the palace within two weeks from the date of the directive.
