Unlike many other Igbo communities, HRH Abdul Fatai Chima Emetumah Duru, is a renowned Muslim scholar and a royal father of Umuofor Kingdom of Imo State.
HRH Abdul Fatai Chima Emetumah Duru was a known Muslim scholar before he was chosen by his community as their king after the death of his father. He was then turbaned by the late Emir of Kano, Adobayero in November, 1992.
The royal father of Umuofor Kingdom accepted Islam as his religion in 1970, after his father, Eze Abdul Gafar Ihunanze Duru Emetumah, II accepted Islam.
