The Itsekiri nation Saturday announced the passage of Ogiame Atuwatse II, the Olu of Warri and almost 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 nation also known as Big Warri.
Prince Emiko, said to be about 60, and younger brother to his Atuwatse II, is a graduate of Business Administration from the University of Benin and is believed to be conversant with the traditions of the land.
The Olu designate was summoned and led by his peers to the palace hall for all to see before he was announced by Chief Pessu acting as the Ologbotsere.
