The traditional ruler of Livanda, a village in Limbe I Sub-Division has expressed discontent over the visit of SDF National Chairman, Ni John Fru Ndi to the area.

In a Press release signed Monday August 12, 2019, H.R.H Motia Mathias Motia blamed Ni John Fru Ndi for visiting a grieving family which lost three relatives in an alleged act of food poisoning in Livanda.

After a brief stop-over at the scene on Sunday August 11 to condole with surviving victims of last week’s incident, the chairman now faces an ultimatum from Chief Motia.

“It is our custom and tradition that strangers do not visit crime scenes unauthorised. I therefore wish to inform you [Fru Ndi] that the village demands an apology from you within forty eight hours. I will not want any unauthorised visit again to my village for any reason,” the communique read in part.

Chief Motia Mathias emerged chief of Livanda village on January 30, 2018 after seemingly gaining favour from his contestant, Franklin Menyoli Carr who was absent during the coronation of a chief to put to an end a seven-year vacancy of third class chief in the area.

It is the second time in two months that the SDF National Chairman is being confronted by a traditional leader in Limbe, after some chiefs requested that he returned a Symbolic Key that was handed him by the Paramount Chief-elect of Limbe, during an unsuccessful visit to the National Oil Refinery (SONARA).

Meanwhile, social media critics say Chief Motia is attacking Fru Ndi to gain favour from the Biya regime.
