Prime advocate of Itsekiri culture and tradition, Chief Ayirimi Emami, says he used his money to commence the rebuilding of Ode - Itsekiri (Big Warri) after the Ijaws burnt the town often referred to as the traditional headquarters of Itsekiri people, during the last Warri crisis.                           

 

Chief Emami, who made the declaration in Warri, Delta state, Friday March 1, at the Night of tributes organized by the Ologbotsere Eyinmisan Descendants of Warri Kingdom, in memory of the life and times of Late Pa Samuel B. Odia Okorodudun, said he built the palace of Ogiame, Erejuwa and Ogbowuru hall in Ode - Itsekiri with 1/3 of the profit he made from Chevron's EGTL contract.
