Isah, a onetime general manager of Radio Kogi and Benue, who produced 'Democracy in Action' for Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, FRCN Kaduna between 1979 and 1983,wasabducted from his house and killed by unknown gunmenon the morning of Wednesday May 28, 2014in Egume,Dekina local government of Kogi State. Though sources said Chief Isah was not an astute politician and was not known to be involved in any chieftaincy tussle, findings revealed that the incident may not be unconnected with a power tussle between the leadership of Egume Ome descendant union which has been lingering for some time now in the community. It was also gathered from sources that as a traditional ruler, Egena Attah Igala, Chief Isah Edime had towering influence in the union's long standing dispute over who leads the community which allegedly had political undertone. Another prominent indigene of the community/former ...

Kogi State Governor, Captain Idris Wada has emphasised the need for people in the state to be actively involved in agriculture to enhance food production and reduce poverty among the citizenry. He made the call when the State Council of Traditional Rulers led by its chairman, His Royal Majesty, Idakwo Michael Ameh-Oboni 11, the Attah Igala paid him a courtesy visit at Government House, Lokoja. Wada said that his administration was determined to make Kogi State the food basket of the country stressing that traditional rulers must take the message of going back to agriculture as the only antidote to poverty to their domains. The governor therefore called on the traditional rulers to continue to pray for him for God’s guidance, protection, strength and wisdom to pilot the affairs of the state. He assured them that he will do his best to commence the renovation of their palaces across the state stressing that his administration has renovated the palace of Oguma in Bassa local government area of the state.

The woman greet him; Amideju,Mideju. In the Palace (court) of Attah, no false witness comes there even up till today. If they do, something mysterious happens to the person that he would be recognized as a false witness. No witches or wizard flies over Opu Attah (Attah's Palace). Often a time witches that tried fell down and turned into naked human beings or half bird and half human. Those who deliberately went after married women up till date cannot pass Opu Ata in the night they will be bitten by a snake that will not be healed.

The myth about ATTAH AMEH OBONI-1 By Sule Isa Akagwu (Kpaleko) _ "Ogbaikolo Ototolo, Oli kima bun ki arotulaka tulaka" Meaning, the tree that does not bud but bear fruits to the envy of others. Prominence has smiled on the man Prince Ameh Oboni before his ascendance to the most revered traditional institution among the Igala people. Nursing ambition to become Ata Igala is forbidden among the hair apparent to the throne. Records shows that those who have nursed the ambition of becoming Ata Igala never realised it. That accounts for why most princes live far away from Idah. This is to avert the temtation of lust for power which has a fatalistic tendency. In late 1945 Ata Obaje Ocheje, the predecessor of Ata Ameh Oboni was old and well stricken in age. It was being rumored that the Odogo walls will soon fall (Traditional indication of the transition of an Ata) members of Aju Ocholi Clan who were traditionally the successive clan in the chronological order of ascendancy to the throne became full of expectatio ...

IDAH TO GET AIRPORT SOON In what could be termed as his most daring move since assumption of office, the Atta of Igala is bent on constructing an airport in Idah and very soon. You will recall that Igala NA during the reign of Ameh Oboni had constructed an aerodrome where small carrier planes could operate from. The aerodrome however stopped functioning several years back for reasons that may not necessarily be disassociated from non-usage. The old aerodrome located along Idah - Ogbogbo road is now wearing a different look as work has since commenced on it in a bid to developing it to a standard local airport. The question that comes to the mind of anybody who hears this news is whether it is a project of the Government of Kogi State. We reliably gathered that the State Government has no stake in the airport project. We do not know if the State Government would decide to contribute or even take over the construction of the airport in the future; but as it stands today, the project can best be described as ...

Peace necessary for development – Attah Igala New Attah Igala Michael Idakwo Ame Oboni has said that peace was necessary for development to thrive in his domain, Kogi State and the country at large. The traditional ruler, who went through all the traditional rites at the weekend at Idah, said for peace to have meaning in the country, the Boko Haram sect should embrace peace. Attah Igala said with partial paralysis of some parts of the north through the activities of the sect, most families who earn their living in the north have been forced to relocate to other areas reducing the economic potentials of the north. “Peace is the first condition for development in the country and catalyst that engenders development,” he said He called on all Igala sons and daughters at home and in Diaspora to live exemplary life to represent the philosophy and aspirations of the fathers of the land which is honesty and transparency. The monarch said the time had come for Nigeria to assume its rightful position as the . ...

President Goodluck Jonathan has congratulated Prince Idakwo Michael Ameh-oboni on his emergence as the new Attah of Igalaland. This was made public Thursday through a statement by the Special Adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati. Jonathan also applauded the adherence to due process and Igala native laws and customs by the Igala Traditional Council and the Kogi State Government to ensure a peaceful and orderly succession to the revered late Attah of Igalaland, Alhaji Aliyu Obaje who passed on last year. The President also urges the new Attah Igala to put the vast knowledge and experience gained from a successful career in the Armed Forces and public service of Nigeria to very good use in the service of his people. As Prince Ameoboni prepares for his formal coronation and ascension to the ancient and highly-respected throne of the traditional rulers of his people, President Jonathan urged him to do his utmost best to foster peace and progress in his domain.

When it was the turn of the Attah Igala after the death of Attah Ohiemi Obogo (Ocholi), Prince Amacho was chosen. Unfortunately Amacho died after his installation. The Attah Igala ruling houses and the king makers then met and asked his younger brother prince Itodo Aduga to replace him.

Igalas’ Long Wait for New Monarch (THISDAY 28-01-2013) By Ishola Oyeyipo and Paulinus Omale Igala, a dominant ethnic group in Kogi State, has been without a traditional ruler for over six months. The stool of the Attah Igala became vacant on July 16, last year when the last monarch, Alhaji Aliyu Obaje, joined his ancestors after a glorious reign. In keeping with the customs and traditions of the Igala people, the deceased monarch was given a befitting funeral three months after his passage. Thereafter, the throne was formally declared vacant and the race for a new king began among the four royal houses. It is the responsibility of the kingmakers to screen candidates and endorse the most suitable one as the people's choice for the throne. The Igala Kingdom is one of the oldest monarchies in Nigeria. Some historians have described it as one of the classical examples of divine kingship in Africa. Unlike some monarchies where succession to the throne is directly from father to son, four ruling houses compet ...

Contrary to speculations that a new Attah has been nominated, a reliable source among the king makers who spoke to our correspondent (pleaded anonymous) said the struggle for the emergence of a new Attah for the kingdom is still on. His words: "Choosing a new Attah is not like choosing a governor. For any mistake thereof will amount to a great calamity. We the king makers are busy ensuring such mistakes are overcomed. The struggle is still on, and soon we shall be having a people minded Atta-Igala, but for now no nomination has been made. Thanks." From the above information reaching us, it is clear that a new Attah has not been norminated but will emerge soon. Igala News Update shall keep you posted on any latest development.

A group, Unyogba Igala Project (UIP), made this call in a statement made available to journalists in Lokoja at the weekend, saying President Jonathan should “please arrest the looming crisis before it snowballs into an uncontrollable situation”. In a statement signed by the group’s spokespersons, Dr. Goodman Akwu and Prince Umoru Obaje, dated January 12, 2013, they enjoined the President to act fast in order to sustain the relative peace being enjoyed by the people of the area for decades, insisting that he should prevail on the Kogi State Government to approve there commendation of the Igala kingmakers on that subject to avoid a looming crisis in the region. While the group wished Governor Idris Wada a quick recove ...

A SHORT HISTORY OF ETTE COMMUNITY. ETTE (meaning 'root' or foundation in Igala) is a community of about 285,000 Igala-speaking people in Olamaboro Local Goverment Area of Kogi State. The name Ette drives frm that of the Grand patriarch of Ette, Ette Akwu Adogo, father of Ogbe Atta Akwu (Ogbataku). Ette Akwu Adogo was Son of Onu Oda Akwu Amanabo of the Igala ruling dynasty of Idah, Kogi State. Ette shares a comon ancestry with other decendants of Onu Oda Akwu Amanabo, viz: Ette-Mahi (Ajaka in Igalamela LGA) and Onu Oda Ojiji (Imane in Olamaboro LGA) all in Kogi State. All the eight lineages of Ette are male descendants of Ogbe Atta Akwu (Ogbataku), through his two wives named Oda and Ebi-ega (Ebiga).

The first being the mode of burial that will be fitting to him, since he was a Muslim but held the traditional position. The other is the politics of who will succeed him. Though the apprehensions have been there since the late royal father stopped appearing in the public some few years ago apparently due to his failing health, the discussions has been scaled up since his demise and has become a major subject matter among the Igalas in Kogi State. There are issues of when the burial should take place and the manner it will take as there are arguments of whether Islamic or traditional rites should be adopted. The late Attah Igala was the first Muslim to ascend the throne. In fact, the coronation and burial rites of Attah Igalas have always been shrouded in traditions and there are arguments by core traditionalists that that of the late royal father should not be different. Already, there is a division in the camps. To some, though he was a Muslim, the traditional method of burying the Attah should take pre ...

Why is it taken Kogi State govt this long to install the new Attah Igala when succession procedures are clearly spelt out?
The battle over the successor of the late Attah Igala and president of Kogi State Council of Chiefs, Dr. Aliyu Obaje, has begun, with some of the children of the past paramount rulers of the kingdom signifying interest. LEADERSHIP WEEKEND reliably gathered that there are three ruling houses at the moment, which are Akumabi, Akogu and Ocholi, but there are four lineages, which consist of Ameacho, Itodo Aduga, Ogala and Idoko Adegbe. Although the Idoko Adegbe lineage, which produced the penultimate Attah, Ameh Oboni, is next in succession, the other three remaining lineages are also eyeing the stool. The development may not be unconnected with what had happened in the past where tradition was altered to accommodate the emergence of some of the former paramount rulers of the kingdom. But the argument of the lineage of Idoko Adegbe, we further gathered, is that they were always in contention, which places them as the next in line to succeed the late Dr. Obaje.
