Warri Royal Crown Disappears


*Two Princes Fingered, Declared Wanted


The over 400 year-old royal crown belonging to the Olu of Warri, has once again, been reported to have grown wings and disappeared from its hold within the palace. As was the first case, sources reveal that the missing crown may have been pilfered by insiders with two brothers of the heir apparent and Olu designate, Omoba Tsola Emiko, named as the rogues this time around.
Consequent upon the disappearance, the Nigerian Police Force, Interpol Section, Force Criminal Investigation Department, Zone 5 Headquarters, Benin City, has since taken over investigations with a view to unraveling how it got missing. Already, it has declared two Princes, Oyowoli Emiko and Omatduli Emiko, wanted in connection with the missing Royal Itsekiri Crown.
The duo, according to the police, broke into the private holden apartment of the Olu of Warri and heisted the crown. A warrant of arrest has since been issued against them by a Benin City, Edo state federal high court.
While Prince Oyowoli is described as a 5.2ft tall, 30 year-old student, his younger brother, Omatsuli, also a student, is said to be 27 years old and standing at 5.6ft. Both are being accused of breaking into the palace and stealing the said Royal Crown.
Sequel to the disappearance of the crown, the police transmitted a letter of invitation to the Warri traditional Prime Minister, Chief Ayiri Emami, after which he was quizzed over the missing crown and other contentious issues. The police also interrogated another palace chief, Macgrey Richmond, over what it described as actions that could result in breach of peace.
“I was invited based on the incident in Warri and it happens to be the invasion of the Olu’s palace. I told them I knew nothing about that because I was not in town when that incident happened.
It is about that laid-down procedure, which is one of the reasons I am here and I have told the police. The police have questioned me on that issue, what led to the Invasion. I have answered that and other issues I can’t divulge.
I did not sign any undertaking, all they asked was who invaded the palace and that certain things were missing in the palace, they wanted to know the whereabouts of those things and I told them what I knew”, Emami told journalists after the session with the police.
Following the transition of the immediate past Olu of Warri, Ogiame Ikenwoli, in December 2020, unknown persons invaded the palace and removed the 400-year-old crown, symbol of the Itsekiri monarchy. The ensuing disagreement over who succeeds him degenerated into a succession squabble from which heir apparent, Prince Tsola Emiko, was eventually chosen as Olu-elect.
