OLU of Warri: Itsekiri nation mourns, designates brother, Abiloye Emiko, as successor
THE Itsekiri nation, yesterday


Announced the passage of Ogiame Atuwatse II, the Olu of Warri, and  immediately designated his younger brother, Prince Ikenwole Godfrey Abiloye Emiko, as successor.
Both announcements were the key issues of a national congress the Itsekiri nation held at the Olu palace, Ode-Itsekiri, ancentral home of the Itsekiri natio

n also known as Big Warri.
Tradition fulfilled
Palace chiefs, the dressed in white robes with a mix of red apron signifying their royalty and black for mourning, gathered before  10am  at the palace hall together with other men, women, and youths of the Itsekiri nation to hear what was at stake.
Chief Yaya Pessu, Ojomo of Warri, representing the Ologbotsere (Chief Priest) of the kingdom, fulfilled tradition when he smashed a big ball of native chalk on the floor of the venue with the exclamation, “The calabash is broken”, signifying the announcement of the passage of Ogiame Atuwatse II, the 19th Olu, who joined his ancestors after 28 years on the throne.
The act by Pessu, which came  at 11.50am, was followed by about 19 cannon shots. These happened as the large crowd present remained anxious about the revelation of who succeeds the departed Atuwatse II.
