A Day-Old Baby Crowned King Of Igbodo Kingdom, Delta State

A day-old baby boy was crowned yesterday in Igbodo Kingdom of Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State.


The child, named Ugochukwu, was crowned by the leader of a delegation from the Igbodo palace at St. Luke’s Hospital Asaba, where he boy was delivered.

This day became a historical event for Igbodo Kingdom and entered the Guinness Book of Records by becoming the community with the youngest monarch.

According to Vanguard, the boy was delivered on Wednesday night and crowned the following morning. Chief Eugene Iyeke of the ruling house of Igbodo led the delegation to Asaba with members of the Obi-in-council and notable indigenes.

It will be recalled that that the Obi of Igbodo, Obi Ikechukwu Osedume I, succumbed to the wishes of his people by formally marrying an indigene of the community in accordance to the native law and custom early in October last year.

And it was the wife, Onyinyechukwu, a native of Igbodo, who gave birth to the boy.
