“Igwe Kris Chinedum Onyekwuluje was a man of many solid parts, a peace loving royal father, who detested violence.

“The monarch’s greatest legacy, which must be sustained, was his dedication to a stable and United Umunya Community.

“These sterling qualities will forever remain evergreen in the heart of Ndi Umunya and Oyi Local government area,” he added.

The deputy governor further added that Late Monarch’s biographies and tributes from family and friends affirmed that Igwe Kris Chinedum Onyekwuluje was instrumental to numerous progress Umunya had achieved in the last two decades and half under his watch.
