His Royal Majesty Edidem Ekpo Okon Abasi Otu V was re-elected and proclaimed Obong of Calabar.
This comes days after a Supreme Courtroom judgment eliminated him from workplace.
Every day Belief reported that Otu was reaffirmed as Obong of Calabar after a prolonged assembly held by the Etuboms Conclave of the Efik Council of Conventional Rulers. The assembly culminated at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 18, with the assertion of 13 Etuboms who signed it.
That is consistent with the Supreme Courtroom ruling of January 13, 2023 which ordered that the drill be performed no later than Wednesday January 18, 2023.
