Following what is said to be unprintable publications reportedly made against him in an Owerri based tabloid,Prince Bob-Kay Njemanze of the revered Njemanze-Ihenacho dynasty has petitioned the Imo state police commissioner against, HRH Eze Peter Eze Mgbowu, Ezechikere Njemanze of Amawom Autonomous community, Owerri Municipal for libel, defamation and character assassination.
Consequent upon the said petition dated August 20,2021 the State Commissioner of Police had to charge the suspects: HRH, Eze C. Peter Njemanze, Ikenna Onuoha and Emmanuel Madumere, columnist and Editor of Announcer Express Newspaper, respectively to Magistrate Court 2,Owerri.
The matter came up on March 9, 2022 and the Amawom traditional ruler and his surety, one John Njemanze (a.k.a Barry White) were not present in Court.
Report said the Court issued warrants of arrest of the embattled Monarch and his surety who were not represented by a counsel. The matter was adjourned to March 23.
In his petition, Prince Bob-Kay Njemanze noted that the said publications in Weekend Announcer Express Newspaper of June 5,2020 ,page 7 tagged him a criminal, fraudster, lunatic, deceitful and untrustworthy person.
The falsehood, he explained are aimed at embarrassing and destroying his hard earned reputation built many years ago.
Stating further, the elder statesman who was a member of the 2014 National Conference on behalf of Imo state averred that the trash against his person was made worse by a Columnist for the tabloid, Ikenna Onuoha who in his article titled, “Bob Njemanze, others & the Balkanization of Owere Nchi Ise Community: Matters arising (Part 1), also described him as “lawless and a sycophant with dangerous approach to Life”. A person who ridicules administrations of governments in the State when the going becomes rough for him, etc”.
Prince Njemanze said, I am a scion of the Njemanze Dynasty and Eze Mgbowu whom he said he couldn’t have joined issues with for many reasons, since, he is not contesting anything with him went ahead to publish that he is a bastard with out ascertainable means of livelihood, a negative influencer and bootlicker.
