The Eze Indigbo in Lagos State, Igwe Hycinth Orazuluike, has asked Igbo resident in the state to be weary of a group of persons masquerading as titled chiefs, stating that they are out to defraud members of the public.
Orazuluike, who made this disclosure in his palace yesterday, said he was helping security agents in the state to track down their kingpin whom he said was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
He added that the kingpin had extended his criminal activities to neighboring countries from where he illegally crowns unsuspecting Igbo chiefs after extorting huge sums of money from them.
“The greatest problem I am having now is that dubious men have joined our traditional institution. I am talking about 419 people. There is this man I crowned in Ikeja, he joined the institution and cracked our original plans of fighting the Igbo course.
"Whenever he gambles and makes quick money, he will use it to disorganize the red cap chiefs”.
