Delta Monarch, Olu of Warri, Summoned by Police over Alleged Offenses

The Delta State Command of the Nigeria Police Force has extended an invitation to the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse III, in response to a petition reportedly lodged against the monarch. The petition alleges various offenses, including attempted murder and assault. The police invitation, titled “Police Investigation Letter,” specifically mentions the case of attempted murder, assault occasioning harm, malicious damage, and conduct likely to cause a breach of peace.

Although the content of the petition is undisclosed, the police have requested the Olu’s cooperation in their investigation, as outlined in the invitation letter signed by the Assistant Commissioner of Police.

Meanwhile, tensions have escalated in Okere community in the Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State following an attack on supporters of a traditional leader, Ayirimi Emami. The attack, allegedly perpetrated by armed thugs suspected to be working for a local traditional ruler, targeted individuals advocating for the preservation of Itsekiri customs and traditions.

Victims of the attack, including community leaders David Iwere and Philip Awani, reported heavy gunfire and property damage. The incident has heightened apprehension among residents and raised concerns about lawlessness in the area.

In response to the attack, community leaders have voiced their support for Ayirimi Emami and condemned the violence, calling on the Inspector General of Police to address the situation. However, when contacted, the spokesperson for the state police command, SP Edafe Bright, claimed to be unaware of the reported shooting.

Regarding the invitation extended to the Olu of Warri, Bright emphasized the police’s duty to investigate any petitions received, regardless of the individuals involved, while stating his lack of specific information about the incident in question.
