Etubom Ekpo Okon Abasi Otu has been dethroned as the Obong of Calabar after an Appeal Court sitting in Calabar has confirmed  a  Calabar High Court ruling which, in October 2012, nullified the processes for his selection.
The court subsequently ordered for another selection process to elect an Obong for the Efik.
According to reports, the decision was unanimous. Justice Mohanmmed Lawal, Justice Uzor Ndukwe and Justice Onyekachi Okisi, the Appeal Court judges  agreed that the selection  processes through which Etubom Abasi Otu emerged to become the Obong of Calabar was not all inclusive and thus new processes should be instituted for all eligible persons to undergo the selection  of Obong.
