The monarch of King of Akoh Kingdom, His Royal Majesty, Eze Cassidy Ikegbidi, Eze Igbu-Akoh II, has been arrested by the operatives of the Department of State Security, DSS, on the progress of the investigation over the gruesome murder of SP Bako Angbashim.
The arrest came after he was indefinitely suspended by the state Governor Siminalaye Fubara on 10th September 2023 for allegedly ceding the control of his domain to the notorious David Gift AKA 2Babs and his gang who killed SP Bako to freely operate and carry out their criminal activities.
Subsequently, the monarch was taken to his residence in Port Harcourt and later to his palace in the Ihugbogo community for a search as part of the investigation.
