Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse III, has disrobed one of the chiefs (name withheld) in the ongoing Chieftaincy title revalidation exercise in his Warri kingdom.

With the development, the affected man ceases to be a chief in the Itsekiri nation.

It was gathered that the chief had come to Ode- Itsekiri, the ancestral home of Itsekiri nation, Warri south local government area, for the revalidation exercise when the monarch declined to decorate him with the traditional bead that makes him a chief, thus denying him the Chieftaincy status in the kingdom

It would be recalled that the monarch about two weeks ago dissolved the Warri council of Chiefs and commenced readmission into the Council with the Iyatsere Chief Johnson Amatserunleghe emerging the most Senior Chief and Chairman of the Warri Council of Chiefs.

The readmission into the Council of Chiefs had been going on at Ode Itsekiri, the ancestral home of Itsekiri nation in the last two weeks.

Those who were readmitted yesterday at Ode Itsekiri include Chief Yaya Pessu,  Chief Brown Mene,  Chief G. T. Grant, and  Chief Felix Esisi.

“The exercise came to a close yesterday but it was said that some chiefs who could not appear on their scheduled date will be attended to when they turn up as some had called to give reasons why they would be absent,” a source said.
