The trending falsehood that the Council of Elders of Nsugbe community in the Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State has exiled one of its most illustrious and enterprising sons, Distinguished Senator Ubanesse Igbeke, is a foolish propaganda sponsored by the enemies of the Senator and nothing more than that.
The senseless and baseless fabrication does not deserve any mention from the senator but for the purposes of records, it is important to point out, that the senator does not imagine himself to possess such draconian powers to arrest, detain or even cause the death of anyone and he doesn’t believe that any individual has such powers.
Persons arrested for offences are handed over to the police and any search for such persons should begin and end at the police stations and not in the homes of private individuals.
The funny story that the senator ordered a Deputy Commissioner of Police not to release arrested persons is just giving a dog a bad name in order to hang it. It is a foolish and ridiculous assumption suggesting that Ubanesse owns the Anambra State Police Command and they answer to him. This assumption is childish and unbelievable.
This is so because cases of missing persons are reported to the police and the question is ; has the case of the persons alleged to be missing been reported to the police? Have the Police conducted their investigations and found that the missing persons are in Ubanesse’s custody? This shows the extent of the foolishness of the sponsors of this moonlight tale.
But the truth is that the men in question have never been missing and cannot be classified as missing persons by any parameter. They are armed robbers who were caught at their different operations with their guns and lawfully handed over to the police.
We still remember the Ekwealor siblings, three blood brothers who made armed robbery their professions until they were caught at different armed robbery operations. In the course of exchanging fire with the Police one of them was neutralized by the Police. The others were arrested by the Police at different armed robbery operations and taken into custody before their younger brother, Chinenye, who must have learnt from the elder ones was arrested by the Police in another armed robbery operation. The Police have not denied their encounter with these armed robbers and why a group of disgruntled individuals would be championing the return of confessed criminals to Nsugbe is the more reason why the town should beam its searchlights on these individuals. There is a very dangerous plot being hatched by these kings of the underworld. However, the consolation is that very soon their names would be made public and justice would run its full course.
Moreover, what is Ubanesse’s business in all these? Was he part of their armed robbery operations or was he part of the police who arrested the criminals in the course of their jobs? Anyone dragging the Senator’s name into this should be suspected to be the brain behind the notorious activities of those armed robbers in Nsugbe.
Many communities are hoping to find courageous people that would help liberate them from the menace of armed robbers and some unscrupulous people in Nsugbe are fighting tooth and nail to bring arrested armed robbers back to the town and witch-hunting brave and courageous people who are working tirelessly to keep the community crime free. This is strange and bizarre.
The trending falsehood admitted that two of the arrested persons have been released on bail. Were they released from the police station or from Ubanesse’s house? If they were detained at the police station why were nitwits asking the Senator to release them when they know who arrested them and where they were? Someone or some people must really want Ubanesse out of the way urgently for them to be shameless to spread stories even idiots would not believe.
And to add sensation to their falsehood they added the delusional story of the senator’s exile from his town. We are still in the 21st Century and not in a stone age. It is only in Nollywood movies that actors exile and excommunicate one another as if we live in a lawless stone age society. However, it must be noted that Nsugbe is not a Nollywood location and the matter at hand is not a Nollywood script but the desperation of the enemies of the senator to undermine his ever rising profile.
Moreover, the Nsugbe council of elders in their last meeting held on 25th January, 2023 at the Obi of the eldest elder which is their usual meeting place, frowned seriously at the story and wondered where it emanated from and insisted that they would investigate to know the source of such sacrilegious propaganda, vowing to deal decisively with whoever is found to be behind it. According to the Council of elders, Senator Igbeke has been “our illustrious son for almost 30 years now and who singly handedly awarded scholarship to the entire Nsugbe town and later extended his scholarship gesture to the entire Anambra East LGA, first of it’s kind. That we the council of elders cannot forget Senator Ubanesse Igbeke in a haste.”
As the purported exiling of the Distinguished Senator has been proved by the Council of Elders to be nothing but a hogwash propaganda, every reasonable person should dump this foolish story in the nearest dustbin, where it rightly belongs.

My God will punish him until he tell me where my two brothers is
The senator in question is as irresponsible as the alleged crimes levelled against him, he dwells in falsehood. First he has questions to answer about the eight missing children, he boasts of awarding scholarships to different people while in his immediate family you can hardly find a graduate till date. A senator who by now should have graduates in his home but sadly you can’t find even one. A senator who have out of school children in his own family, what a shame. The evil that men do live with them.
