The ancient community of Ogwashi-Uku in Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta State have been thrown into mourning, following the transition to eternal glory of their monarch, Obi (Prof.) Chukwuka Okonji.

The sad event which took place a few weeks ago was today disclosed by his daughter, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala through her Facebook post which reads;


It is with thanks to Almighty God that I announce two impactful events: the Ascension to the throne of the Ogwashi-Uku Kingdom of my brother, Obi Ifechukwude Chukuka Okonjo, upon the passing away of my father Obi (Professor) Chukuka Okonjo at the age of 91.


We pray that his soul finds eternal rest in the Lord. Also, we beg God to grant his successor the wisdom to lead his people.
