In response, a seven-member committee has been formed to investigate the accusations against the king. During this period, King Boutua Aranka has been directed to refrain from performing any duties as the Ibedaowei of Opokuma clan or in his capacity as a traditional ruler.

The suspension will persist until the committee completes its inquiry, and the government subsequently lifts the suspension order.
