The Ologbotsere of Warri Kingdom and Chairman of the Olu Advisory Council, Chief Ayirimi Emami may have at last concluded plans to challenge in court his alleged suspension by a section of the Ginuwa I Ruling House.


This was disclosed by the spokesman of the Ologbotsere Descendants worldwide, Comrade Alex Eyengho in a chat with some newsmen in Warri on July 5, 2021.


According to Comrade Eyengho, the Ologbotsere of Warri, Chief Emami is taking this decision after painstaking wide consultations with critical stakeholders on the matter both home and abroad, adding that the Ologbotsere's prayers in court "shall be seamlessly simple, straightforward and from the point of extant laws."


"I am sure that the general public must have noticed the dignified deafening silence of Ologbotsere Ayiri Emami since his purported suspension by a section of the Ginuwa I Ruling House. This silence is certainly not a mark of weakness but an opportunity to give those involved enough time to retrace their steps, swallow their prides, apologise to him and the Itsekiri for their illegal action, in the overall interest of the Itsekiri and as the only sure way forward," Comrade Eyengho stated.


"The Ologbotsere will simply be asking the court to interprete within the framework of the 1979 Edict as it concerns Warri Kingdom and other relevant extant laws whether the Ginuwa I Ruling House has the power whatsoever to suspend any or the least Chief of Warri Kingdom not to talk of the the number one Chief in terms of hierarchy, the Ologbotsere of Warri. He will also ask the court to determine whether the same Ginuwa I Ruling House has the power to empower the current Iyatsere of Warri and number two in the hierarchy, Chief Johnson Atserunleghe or any other Chief for that matter to perform any or all the functions of the Ologbotsere, while he is still alive, hale and hearty. These are some of the basic questions Ologbotsere Ayiri Emami shall be asking the court for interpretations and definite pronouncements," Comrade Eyengho further disclosed. 


"May it also be put on record that we are not unaware of the new trend of hired armed thugs and hoodlums invading court sittings in Warri and chasing out judges, lawyers etc from court premises. Because of the nature of this impending case, we are not ruling out the possibility of the same set of thugs storming the court in an even more violent manner when we appear. It is then we shall know whether the police, DSS and other security agencies are all on AWOL (Absent Without Leave) to the detriment of law abiding citizens, particularly those whose only offense is seeking justice in the law court. Specifically, may we seize this opportunity to call on the Inspecto-Genral of Police and other security agencies to beef up security around the Ologbotsere of WarriKingdom, Chief Ayirimi Emami for obvious reasons. We cannot afford to take chances or underestimate the extent to which those against extant laws can go in achieving their targets," Comrade Eyengho stated.


"The Itsekiri are people known to follow the law at all times. We rely on the law and decided cases in all our internal and external issues. The Itsekiri have never been known to be part of illegality of any kind. Therefore, we cannot afford to aprobate and reprobate on this and other matters.This is the stand of the current Ologbotsere of Warri Kingdom, Chief Ayirimi Emami whose only crime was to err on the side of the law by advising ab initio that the extant law (1979 Edict) as it concerns the successor of the 20th Warri monarch, His Majesty, Ogiame Ikenwoli, be followed, stricto senso. However, we take solace in the fact that at the end of the day, the truth can never be buried in perpetuity and justice shall prevail in this matter," Comrade Eyengho further stated.
