His Majesty, Ogiamé Atuwatse III, the Olu of Warri has installed Chief Oma Eyewuoma as the new Ologbotsere of Warri Kingdom. Until his new title, Chief Eyewuoma was the Aboludero of Warri Kingdom.

The installation ceremony which took place earlier today at the Palace of the Olu had in attendance Palace Chiefs, the immediate past Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, Mr. Ayiri Emami and other notable sons and daughters of Warri Kingdom. The Aghófen Hall was full to capacity as everyone was curious of the agenda of the meeting.

Rumour has it that the Olu had a meeting yesterday with the derobed Ologbotsere, Mr. Ayiri Emami. Meanwhile, there were speculations after the meeting that the Olu had resolved to reinstate Mr. Emami as Ologbotsere of Warri Kingdom but alas! the reverse was the case - the king is indeed wise and unpredictable.

Recall that the Monarch had on October 5, 2021 announced the derobing of the (then) embattled Ologbotsere of Warri, Mr. Ayiri Emami at a ceremony held in his palace. The pronouncement had since put an abrupt end to Ayiri’s reign as Ologbotsere in Warri Kingdom.

It was gathered that after the installation of Chief Eyewuoma as Ologbotsere, His Majesty, Ogiamé Atuwatse III magnanimously announced a new title (lower) to be conferred on Ayiri but he (Mr. Ayiri) declined and walked out of the palace as the families of Chief Eyewuoma and the entire Warri Kingdom celebrate the new Ologbotsere.

It is worthy of note that the good people of Warri Kingdom staged a protest against the nomination and installation of Mr. Ayiri Emami as Ologbotsere by Ogiamé Ikenwoli in 2017. Chief Rita Lori-Ogbebor was also averse to the conferment of the title of Ologbotesre on Emami even against the wishes of the people of Warri Kingdom.
