The issue which gave rise to this antecedent dated back to 2018, when HRH Chika Nwokedi contested for governorship position in Imo state, during one of his travels from Lagos to the East, he was accosted by NDLEA upon a tip off from Chukwudi Samuel accusing the claimant of being in possession of hard drugs. After a search and investigation he was found innocent of the allegation, cleared of created falsehood and deformatory antecedents. Chukwudi Samuel also during the years and recently had concocted false stories about the Eze thereby inciting inter tribal unrest between the Oba of Ijegun and the Eze of Ijegun Ijeododo by simply planting hate in the mind of the Oba which had led him to perpetrate some unlikely attitude towards the non tribe in that region.
