New Olu Of Warri Designate Named [SEE PHOTOS + VIDEO]

OLU-NEW-AThe Itsekiris in Delta State have formally announced the passage of Ogiame Atuwatse II, the Olu of Warri.

The ceremony, which was held at the Ode-Itsekiri (Big Warri), the traditional headquarters of the Itsekiri, also saw the announcement of one of the late Olu’s younger brothers, Prince Godfrey Ikenwoli Emiko (Abiloye), as the Olu-designate.

Announcing both the passage of Atuwatse II and the choice of Prince Ikenwoli to the Itsekiri National Congress, the eldest member of the Olu Advisory Council, Chief Tesigiweno Yahya Pessu, also performed the traditional ‘breaking of the calabash’, which represents the death of the king.
