Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has dethroned the traditional ruler of Baabe Kingdom in Khana Local Government Area of the state, His Royal Majesty, Chief Monday Frank Noryaa.
The approval of the monarch’s withdrawal of Certificate of Recognition was with immediate effect.
It was gathered that the withdrawal of government recognition from HRM Chief Monday Frank Noryaa followed his alleged indictment on cult related activities within his kingdom.
The traditional ruler was also indicted for harbouring cultists, leading to insecurity in the area.
Governor Wike reiterated that his administration remains committed to the promotion of peace and security across the state, stating that any Traditional Ruler or Government Functionary indicted for promoting insecurity will face the full weight of the law.
