Recall that Oasis Magazine reported that the traditional council of chiefs in Mosogar Kingdom, Delta State, otherwise known as the Oguedion, headed by Chief Jacob Pauley Ojariekre, Ugo of Mosogar, on the 28th of July, 2022 suspended the Ovie-elect, Chief Sunny Okpurhe Odogu, Chief Ighoyota Amori and several others.

The suspension was on the grounds of causing disunity and chaos by bringing in armed military men and police men into the Oguedion to harass and intimidate chiefs especially from the Udurhie Ruling house.

At the time of this report, Oasis Magazine was unable to get the reaction of Chief Joseph Omene and a few others to the development.
