See how 17 - year- old Delta monarch plans to rule his kingdom

Chukwuka Noah, the newly installed Obi (king) Akaeze I of Ubulu-Uku Kingdom in Aniocha South local government area of Delta state after the murder of his father in January, has revealed how he will rule the kingdom.

In an interview with The Punch, Noah said he will miss relating with his peer group in the open as he is used to in the United Kingdom.

Read excepts from the interview below:

When exactly did you know that you would
succeed your father as the king of Ubulu-
Uku Kingdom?

Kingship is not like chieftaincy titles, it is
ordained by the Almighty God. The time I
would succeed my father, Obi Akaeze
Edward Ofolue III, was not known to me until
the unfortunate incident in which he was
kidnapped and then murdered by gunmen in
January. The subsequent ascension of my
father’s throne was a decision from God and
I appreciate Him for the decision.

Do your schoolmates and friends still relate
with you the same way they did before you
became king?

My relationship with my friends and
schoolmates still remain the same. They are
still my friends and schoolmates. The only
difference now is that I am a king by the
divine grace of God. They are aware of the
present position of things and also know the
honour a king deserves.

What would you miss most about your life
now that you are a king?

Thank you. I am a very reserved person. I
also have an unshaken belief and trust in
God. I worship Him in reverence too. Now
that I am a king, I will miss relating with my
peer group in the open as I used to do in the
United Kingdom. I used to visit my friends at
will. I will also miss that. Notwithstanding, I
intend to ask more questions, listen to my
people and strive hard to better their lives. I
will ensure I am better guided in order to
give the best of my capacity.

What is your message to the people of your

Well, considering the heart-rending incident
in which my beloved father lost his life, I will
try to take everything slowly. I will also want
them to know that God is with our land. I am
certain that God is with the people of Ubulu-
Uku who are my wonderful people. God will
continue to protect them and lead them
right. He will grant them mercies and bless
them with His uncommon grace to succeed.
I will carry on during this difficult period and
protect the good people of Ubulu-Uku by
seeking God’s intervention to lead me well. I
pray that God will never leave the people of
Ubulu-Uku. He will give them the grace to
succeed in the name of Jesus.
Noah took over from his HRM Obi Akaeze
Edward Ofulue III, who was reportedly
kidnapped and killed by suspected Fulani
herdsmen on January 5 2016 at a spot along
Obior to Igbodo Road notorious among locals
for banditry.
The late monarch’s death crippled the
economic activity in Ubulu-Uku as all shops
in the area were closed. A local vigilante
group discovered the body of HRM Obi
Akaeze Edward Ofulue III, who had been
abandoned along with the body of an
unidentified man.
