Chief Ayiri Emami

By Daniel Dafe, Abraka

Chief Ayirimi Emami has said that it is the prerogative of the Ologbostere Of Warri Kingdom to call for the General Assembly of the Itsekiri nation.

Emami, in a statement on Friday who still held on to his Ologbostere of Warri title despite his alleged suspension, urged the public to disregard the announcement that a General Assembly of Itsekiri nation was in the offing.

His words: ”The Ologbostere of Warri kingdom has not summoned any general assembly of the itsekiri nation at Ode – Itsekiri in Warri South Local Government Area in Delta State or any other venue for now.

”Information reaching me is that some unscrupulous elements, who want to cause confusion in our dear Warri kingdom, are making frantic efforts to call for a General Assembly.

”Let it be known, that by virtue of the declaration BDSL 147 pursuant to the traditional rulers and chiefs edict of 1979, which guides the procedure for selection to the succession throne of the Olu of Warri, when an Olu is indisposed, it is only the Ologbostere that has the power to summon the General Assembly of the Itsekiri nation. Any action taken by any other person(s) is in confrontation to the edict.”

Emami called on security agencies to hold any person(s) responsible that goes contrary to the law, adding that this ”could cause a breach of peace in Warri kingdom.”

”Itsekiri nation shall abide by the laws of the land,” he said.
