The Ologbotsere of Warri, Chief Ayiri Emami, has dismissed the emergence of a new Olu of Warri, saying the announcement of Prince Tsola Emiko as Omoba (Olu Designate) is illegal.
Ayiri, while calling for calm among Itsekiri people and concerned Nigerians, noted that the revered Olu stool is not for the highest bidder.
The Ologbotsere of Warri was reacting to the emergence of Prince Emiko as the 21th Olu of Warri in an exclusive interview with NIGER DELTA TODAY (NDT) Online on Monday.
“Out of seven, it’s only two kingmakers that were there. I am urging Itsekiris and indeed, all Nigerians remain calm. Itsekiri will announce their king when the time comes. Emami as the Ologbotsere of Warri will never support illegality in any form.”
