History was made at the palace of the revered monarch of Akumazi Kingdom in Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State, HRM Obi Henry Ezeagwukpo Jegbefume, when the traditional ruler conferred a title of “Ogbuchai” on a twelve-year-old boy, Master Abel Ekene.

The occasion which was held on Wednesday June 5, 2024, attracted family members of the young lad, friends of the title recipient, neighbours, and all who know his parents.

Master Abel Ekene received the honour from the king after he killed a white rabbit while hunting in the bush, which according to the tradition, anyone who kills a white rabbit/white animal will always be recognized by the royal father.
