Warri Succession Crisis: Oba Of Benin Wades In, Meets Ologbotsere by Ctorch: 7:40am On Apr 17
There were indications on on Friday that the Oba of Benin, His Royal Majesty, Oba Ewuare II, has waded into the succession crisis that is rocking Warri Kingdom in Delta State.

The Nation authoritatively gathered that the Benin monarch met with one of the key players in the crisis, the Ologbotsere, Chief Ayiri Emami.

A source at the Oba of Benin palace told our reporter that Emami arrived at the palace at 3pm on Thursday and was immediately ushered into the presence of the Oba where a meeting that lasted about three hours with the monarch took place.

“The visit of Chief Emami to Benin on Friday was at the instance of the Omo N’Oba, who is very disturbed by the happenings in the Warri Kingdom,” our source said.

Although the details of the Wednesday’s meeting were not immediately known, it was gathered that Emami left the palace at about 6pm.

Chief Emami, who was contacted on the phone yesterday morning, confirmed the meeting but declined comment on what transpired.

“Yes, it is true that I met with our royal father, HRM the Oba of Benin. Whatever happened at the palace is personal,” he said before hanging up.

But The Nation gathered that the visit was not unconnected with the happenings in Warri Kingdom, where the Ologbotsere is embroiled in a fight with the Ginuwa Ruling House.

It will be recalled that the Ginuwa Ruling House, led by the Olori-Ebi, Prince Emmanuel Okotie-Eboh, had suspended the Ologbotsere, following disagreement over the emergence of Prince Tsola Emiko as the Olu-designate.

The Ojoye-Isan, the apex body of traditional titleholders in the kingdom, led by the Ologbotsere, had disqualified Prince Tsola on the strength of Article 4 of the law guiding the stool, which bars princes, except those born by Bini or Itsekiri mothers, from the throne.

The emergence of the Olu-designate without the Ologbotsere has led to a crisis, with the state government refusing to acknowledge the Omoba because of “issues around his emergence”.

Bini and Warri kingdoms share very close ties dating back to the 15th Century when a Benin prince founded the kingdom and became its first Olu Ginuwa in 1480, and it is hope that the peace move of the Oba could help bring a quick resolution of the matter.

Similarly, the Itsekiri Leaders of Thought (ILOT) has also being meeting with the stakeholders, including the Ruling Family and Ologbotsere Emami with whom the group held a very lengthy meeting on Tuesday.

Various sources said Itsekiri leaders at the meeting held at the home of Chief Isaac Jemide, the Otsodi of Warri, called for cessation of the ‘media war’ to pave way for dialogue and reconciliation.

“The ILOT is working to ensure that the persons involved refrain from unnecessary newspaper and other media engagements that can worsen the already bad situation,” our source at the meeting said.

Meanwhile, sources said the Ologbotsere is under intense pressure to drop his opposition to the emergence of Prince Tsola Emiko as the Olu-designate in order to pave the way for a peaceful and seamless coronation.

“There has been a lot of pressure on him to cease hostility and flow with the wish of the people. His visit to the Oba of Benin is therefore a part of the plan to ensure that he buries the hatchet to allow a peaceful transition and coronation.”

I will never support evil and as such the article 4 is a useless one.....

Itshekiri are by extension Yorubas, So it makes no sense, I mean no sense how the son of a Yoruba woman won't become king.

The 1979 edict is a daylight robbery and shouldn't stand.

The Benin kingdom itself is a yoruboid kingdom ( Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor an Itshekiri man affirmed this)...

Prince Tsola should be crowned the Olu of Warri.

You cannot deny the real owners of the kingdom by extension their right to also rule their land.

The Article 4 should be burnt to ashes....It has outlived it's usefulness and reason it was created.

If some lies, revisionist are not nipped to the mud, they might end up extending the local government they want to control in their expansionist agenda upto Nine..

Itsekiris and Yorubas are inseparable... We both have ifa, ogun and umalokun. Benins have some too but got it from us.

Besides, Itsekiris don't understand BINI Language...

Come in Itsekiri is WA... What is it in yours?
Cloth in Itsekiri is ASHO... what is it in yours?
Family is EBI while people is ARA... What is it in Bini?
Food is Oje, Soup is Obe, Fish is Eja, Water is Omi, Oil is Ekpo, Medicine/20/War/Talisman is Ogun, Dance is Jo.... I can go on forever.

Thank ORITSE for English and pidgin that Oyibos brought, Itsekiris would have been like Fish out of water in Benin city.... while they would blend in perfectly anywhere in Coastal Yorubaland.... Nigeria is the only place where some people will think they have the right to 'claim' others who don't even understand their language as if those ppl are a conquered or servile race, and yet everyone is busy complaining about Fulanis while doing the very same things and worse in their backyards..... No wonder the whole country is upside down.

what do you know about the Warri Kingdom?

The name "OGIAME" that every Olu of Warri is called is not a yoruba name- It is a Bini name - do you know that?

Abeg stop typing nonsense,benin is not connected to yoruba.We have our history unlike the one u claimed one person came down from heaven, kindly ask ur oni why he visited the benin kingdom after and before coronation.We don't drag but we know the truth.
