The President General Okennachi Kindred Union


c/o Eze Aro Palace Oror, Arochukwu.

Attention Mazi Udoh Chijioke


I write to confirm that I have seen the letter in respect of my refusal to accept your request and attempts to convince me to accept and clear one Nwamazi Eberechukwu Joshua Eni Kanu Oji for crowning as Eze Aro.

I am reliably informed when I interviewed the following men who came to me from you on this mission. They were Mazi Nkem Okoro, Mazi Emmanuel Ivi, Mazi Ugochukwu Okoroafor who particularly was shocked when I tried to explain the implications of what you expected me to do as custodian of the Customs and Traditions of this Kingdom.

No matter how and what pressure anyone puts on me on this matter I could have done otherwise when in fact I know that Nwamazi Eberechukwu Joshua Eni Kanu Oji is the third child, the second son and a practicing Pastor whose father is still alive who said that he will NEVER go to Awada Aro Shrine but will send somebody to do that for him. Apostle Joshua (his father) should have known the implications of this. Nde Ichie Aro Agaghi Ekwem Mejowo!!! I did not see the young man in person, if I did I am sure I would have advised him over this serious issue, because he has to be told the truth about this matter.

First of all, how can you be an Eze Aro when you have not performed the burial rites of your father who is still alive. Ebule Aka Ikenga is very paramount in this.

As a P.G you ought to know all these things.

It's instructive at this time to bring to your attention that HRM Eze Mazi Godwin Kanu Idei has been presented, confirmed, crowned and blessed as the new Eze Arochukwu Kingdom on Friday, 20th October, 2023. You are advised to receive him as your new King in the kingdom.

Yours faithfully,

HRH Eze Okoroafor Uroh Okoroafor
