An atmosphere of disbelief and dumbness has enveloped the Idumuje-Ugboko community in Aniocha North local government area, Delta State, following the alleged ejection of the Queen Mother, Her Royal Majesty (HRH), Okwukwe Nwoko, from the palace, over allegation of infidelity, since the past two years.

Okwukwe accused the crown prince and his loyalists of sending her out of the palace so the former could achieve his desire of succeeding the 90-year old monarch who she said is now in miserable condition due to lack of care,

She also threatened court action to reclaim her position in the palace.

The monarch, Obi Agbogidi Nwoko III, reportedly married four wives but divorced two while one is
dead, leaving Okwukwe as the only recognised wife staying with him before the development.

Okwukwe, 37, in an interview with newsmen said she was unjustly accused of infidelity and sent out of the palace with seven-month-old pregnancy belonging to the monarch.

She said trouble started after a failed plan to reconcile one of the Obi’s former wives with the palace and some persons vowed that no wife of the Obi would remain in the palace since the move failed.

The queen mother claimed that when she was accused of infidelity, she agreed to a DNA test or be allowed to take the traditional oath to prove her innocence.

She added that her accusers, working on speculations, refused and drove her out despite the unproven case of infidelity.

Okwukwe claimed that while the matter was being addressed, she was stopped from entering the palace.

According to her, she lived peacefully with the monarch before the incident. She stated that the pregnancy she was accused of getting through infidelity produced a baby who is now about three years old.

She also said the baby had neither been seen nor touched by her father since her birth.

Okwukwe appealed to the Obi-in-Council, opinion leaders and the royal family to intervene in the matter, adding that she “wants to go back to the palace and take care” of her husband.

When contacted, the Iyase of Idumuje-Ugboko, Chief Chris Ogwu, said the Obi-in-Council had yet to address the issue, noting that the traditional ruler was not happy with the expulsion of his wife from the palace.

However, a member of the royal family who identified himself as Prince Obi Nwoko, who spoke to Journalists, insisted that Okwukwe was found to be pregnant outside wedlock and was ejected by the royal family according to tradition.

He alleged that besides sighting her severally in an uncompromised position, the baby in question was not a semblance of the Nwokos.

I don't think she is guilty since she agreed to swear an oath. Let God intervene. I know how crazy it can be in polygamous royal family with children of the first and second wives when they are grown. They always see the last wife as a gold digger forgetting she cleans their father's mess.
