Jukun Group Accuses Gov. Ishaku Of ‘Locking up Aku Uka’s Palace’

 The Jukun Development Association of Nigeria (JDAN) have Taraba State Governor Architect Darius Ishaku of locking up the Aku Uka's palace, giving him a 3 days ultimatum starting from Monday 9th May 2022 to re-opened it.

The group also called for the immediate and indefinite suspension of all political Programmes and activities in Jukunland within 3 days until the new Aku Uka of Wukari His Royal Majesty Manu Ishaku Adda Ali Amatakhitswen is properly settled in his original seat of power which is the Aku Uka's traditional palace in Wukari.

 The National President of the association Chief Bako Benjamin while speaking with newsmen in Abuja said that the continued desecration of Jukun heritage and tradition by Governor Darius Ishaku can no longer be accepted and must be resisted and condemned by all true Jukuns.

 Benjamin accused Governor Ishaku of holding the Jukun's highest traditional stool with disdain and scorn as revealed when he refused to visit and honour the late Aku Uka Dr Shekarau Angyu Masa Ibi Kuvyun when he transited and when the new Aku Uka was installed and coronated.

 Benjamin said JDAN as the protector and defender of all Jukun institutions in the world, the association must not keep quiet when Governor Darius Ishaku locked up the Aku Uka's palace and put the keys in his pocket and moved around with it.

 He called on all true Jukun sons and daughters to rise in unity and protect the dignity, purity and sanctity of the highest Jukun traditional institution in the land from being destroyed by Governor Darius Ishaku.

 The president said no campaign should be happening anywhere in Jukunland when our King who should be in his traditional home performing necessary daily religious rites is held up in the private residence of someone in Wukari for months and Jukun people are going about their activities as if everything is alright.
