Admiralty University, which is owned by the Nigerian Navy, has been given a 30-day ultimatum by the people of Ogwashi-Uku Kingdom, through their monarch, HRM. Obi Ifechukwude Aninshi Okonji II, to relocate from Ibusa to Ogwashi-Uku.

In the event that the university doesn’t comply, they promised to start legal proceedings.

This is stated in a precautionary warning that Sir J.O. Ojobu & Co., the lawyers for the Obi of Ogwashi-Uku and members of the Obi in Council, served on November 21 to the Chairman of the Governing Council, Vice Chancellor, and Registrar of the University.

The attorneys argued that any designation that deviates from the delineation recognized by the Nigerian Constitution is unconstitutional since the document “delineated 774 local governments.”

The river Oboshi serves as the border between Ibusa, which is located in Oshimili North Local Government, and Ogwashi-Uku, which is located in Aniocha South Local Government. Ojobu sent a verified map of Delta State with local government boundaries with his letter.

Additionally, this river serves as the Ogwashi-Uku and Ibusa Communities’ natural border. Admiralty University cannot be situated in Ibusa (Oshimili North local government), as it is unquestionably located in the Aniocha South local government area, which is a constitutional issue.

The attorneys for the Obi of Ogwashi-Uku emphasized that individuals from the Ibusa community have taken advantage of these irregularities to intrude into Ogwashi-Uku territory and cause animosity without facing consequences.

When approached, Ogwashi-Uku Kingdom’s Palace Secretary, Prince Ifeakanachukwu Emordi, stated that the Ogwashi-Uku community would not stand for any further constitutional violations or the Ibusa community’s claim to their farmland.

“Commander Ezeoba, who was from Ibusa, forcibly took the land that Admiralty University had received, and he intimidated the Ogwashi-Uku community members with military men.”

The Obi of Ogwashi-Uku, an academic, was not against the university, according to the Palace Secretary; rather, he wished to make sure that the address and other legal documents accurately represented the institution’s actual location.

Additionally, he issued a warning to Ibusa community members who are trespassing on Ogwashi-Uku territory to avoid the area.
