Real Reasons Olu Of Warri Oba Tsola Emiko Stripped Ayiri Emami Of His Ologboshere Title..

On Tuesday, 5 October 2021 in the Warri Kingdom, the Olu of Warri, Oba Tsola Emiko, Ogiame Atuwashe III, wielded his royal axe and it landed on the neck of Emami Ayiri who was stripped of his Ologbotsere (Primi Minister) title.

An extension of this judgement was that the Olu’s Palace invited the Ologbotsere family and instructed the members “never to address Ayiri as Ologbotsere anymore.” In order not to create a vacuum, Pa. Higson Ajofotan Oporokun, the Olori-Ebi of the Ologbotsere family was empowered to superintend over all activities of members henceforth.

Before then, the Ologbosere had been on suspension and many believed that it was a matter of time before the Olu would wield his royal scimitar against the kingdom’s prime minister.

Ayiri’s sins were two. 

First, he reportedly tore into shreds the nomination paper (of Emiko) presented to him by the kingmakers. This was considered a great affront to the kingmakers and Emiko himself who kept his anger to himself.

Secondly, Ayiri, to prove that he was not mad when he tore the nomination paper, made a beeline for the court to challenge the Thursday 27 May 2021 press conference announcement of the date of installation of Emiko as the next Olu.

 That announcement was made by the Iyatsere of Warri Kingdom and acting Chairman of the Olu’s Advisory Council, Chief Johnson Amatserunleghe. The Iyatsere told journalists that the formal proclamation of Emiko as the successor to the throne was made at Ode-Itsekiri on 5 April 2021, the same day the passage of his predecessor, Ogiame Ikenwoli, was announced. According to Iyatsere, Emiko’s emergence came “after a rigorous process, which included a painstaking search within and among the descendants of the last three Olus as required by tradition, custom and extant laws.”

Ayiri, the Ologbosere, would have none of that and He headed to a Warri High Court, seeking legal interpretation of the amended 1979 Olu of Warri Chieftaincy Edict which says that the Olu must have Benin and Warri blood flowing in him. Emiko’s mother is Yoruba: Olori Gladys Emiko (wife of OluAtuwatse II, Emiko’s father).

Ayiri sought the court’s order of an interlocutory injunction to “restrain the defendants either by themselves, agents, privies and/or whomsoever from crowning any person as the Olu of Warri Kingdom, pending the hearing and determination of the suit.

He wanted “an order restraining the defendants either by themselves, agents, privies and (or) by whomsoever from using anybody, particularly the third defendant (Iyatsere) or the Uwangue or any other traditional chief of Warri Kingdom to crown any person as the Olu of Warri Kingdom against the provision of the Traditional Rulers and Chiefs Edict of 1979, pending the hearing and determination of this suit”.

He also sought the court to “upturn the purported suspension of Ologbotsere as the Chairman, Olu Advisory Council and Traditional Council of Chiefs by the Ginuwa I Ruling House.”

  1. Ok, so his dad that married a Yoruba woman to birth him was mad, abi?

  2. Emami Ayiri's destination; the royalties Chevron and other oil and gas companies pay to the kingdom. He's suspended and should stay suspended.

    1. Exactly.
      It's all about the money!

  3. Na wah oh, so much power tussle. People who have tasted power never want to relinquish it, instead they use all they have to amass more power.
    Sorry oh Ayiri, your reign is over.

  4. Ancestors dey call Ayiri name.

  5. This one na nollywood movie, they all will be alright last last

  6. Ayiri just wanted to maintain his loyalty to late Olu Ikenwoli's family and by so doing, shot himself badly.
    Ayiri has been a warrior and they should have just made him, head of the Deve fighter group and not a royal chief.
    He made his money from Deve gains, in the days of the war.
    The last Olu made a big mistake and he was warned.
    Ayiri,l have known him from his teen days, is very stubborn but kind hearted, he thought he could do royalty with gragra.
    Jevi no be so my brother.
    And l like him.

  7. I kuku no understand so i no go put mouth...

  8. Truth is that many of you commenting here have not the faintest notion. The Edict clearly states that the Olu must be a man whose parents are both of Warri or Edo extraction. That was why Emiko was removed the FIRST time. Hosa's money did what it what supposed to do. Ivie is now happy. This is bullshit.
