LAGOS JUNE 13TH (URHOBOTODAY) THE FOUR sub-clans of Ughievwen kingdom Orhowhe, Owahwa, Ukpedi and Uhurie – have resolved to part ways to become autonomous kingdoms of their own to pave way for excellent administration.
The decision which was reached in a meeting convened by Chief Benson Tietie, the secretary, Ughievwen Traditional Council, had Chief Bernard Jamaho, the president general, Ughievwen Union;, Chief Anicetus Dafioghor, the secretary, Ughievwen Union; Rev. Gordon Akpoforayen, President General, Owawha Sub-Clan, Chief Samuel Akporuru, President, Ukpedi Sub-Clan, Chief Michael Akponokan, President, Uhurie Sub-Clan and 28 chairmen and secretary out of the 32 communities in Ughievwen kingdom in attendance.

After the meeting, Chief Bernard Jamaho, President General, Ughievwen Union stated that the outcome of the meeting was that the people of Ughievwen kingdom have resolved to break into four kingdoms of Orhowhe Kingdom, Owahwa Kingdom, Ukpedi Kingdom and Uhurie Kingdom.
According to him, “There was a court order from some groups of Ughievwen sons restraining the Ughievwen Union from holding its proposed conference for June 15. In view of this, the conference was postponed to 14 December, 2013 to enable the Ughievwen people discuss the way forward”.
While appealing for calm among the Ughievwen people, Chief Jamaho advised that whether Ughievwen kingdom breaks into four or not they would always live together as brothers and sisters.
Chief Benson Itietie, Chairman, Ughievwen Conference Organizing committee, on his part said, “I called for a meeting on how to deliberate on the way forward for the conference due to a court order restraining us from holding the conference but it turned out to be Ughievwen Union meeting with a different agenda, so I postponed the meeting”.
Matthew Edirin Egbi, Okobaro of Ughievwen kingdom when contacted on his mobile number as at press time said, he was yet to get report of the meeting from those that attended.
