A clip of the verbal attack by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on HRH Eze Barr Onyekachi Omaowu, the traditional ruler of Omuma, got the internet cringing and clapping at the same time as mixed reactions have continued to trail Wike’s statement.
The governor had during the annual quarterly meeting of the traditional rulers in the state on Tuesday blasted the kings for not moving around with their staffs of office.
But when the king of Omuma shook his head to what the governor was saying, he went full-throttle on the king, asking him to stop shaking his head and thereafter, referred to him as a ‘small boy’ and a ‘trouble maker’.
The internet reacted accordingly to Wike’s statements.

Just watched this Wike video of him belittling a traditional ruler, that was not even cool, sadly some of our traditional rulers also paid such foundation to be spoken to in such manner. Sad stuff!
