Orluzurumee Boils Again .As factions head to court




The crisis rocking Orluzurumee social-political organisation, has taken a dangerous turn, as one of the factions led by Chief Emeka Diwe has filed a motion in court seeking an injunction to restrain Chief Chime Nzeribe from parading himself as Chairman of the group.


The resort to legal fireworks by contending forces in the group further strengthens insinuations that the powerful group that determines the political direction of Orlu zone may reduce itself to ignominy by washing their pants in public.


The legal fireworks which came up at a High Court in Orlu in Tuesday signifies that the battle for supremacy among the two factions has taken a new dimension.


Speaking to newsmen recently, Diwe stated that it is wrong for anyone to parade himself as the substantive president of the union since the demise of Chief Bons Nwabiani who was the Chairman of the group.


Chief Diwe expressed hope that the court will settle the matter amicably, even as he wondered why some group of persons should use the union’s name illegally.


Also speaking, the President of the Board of Trustees of Orluzurumee, Chief Reuben Okoro, condemned the use of the name of the union illegally.


The court adjourned the matter to May 20, 2013 for further hearing of the suit.
