The Nigerian Police Force has declared the two sons of the late Olu of Warri, Ogiame Ikenwoli Godfrey Emiko, in connection with the missing Royal Crown of the Itsekiri Kingdom‎.

According to the police, Prince Onyowoli Emiko and Prince Omatsuli Emiko allegedly broke into the private apartment of the Olu of Warri, where they stole the royal crown.

It was gathered that Onyowoli is said to be wanted “for the offence of breaking into the secret apartment of the HRM Olu of Warri and stealing the Royal Crown”. He is described to be “a student, Itsekiri by tribe, Aged 30 years, 5.2ft of height”, among other physical identities.

Similarly, his younger brother, 27-year old Oamtsuli Emiko, 5.6ft in height and also a student, is wanted for the same of offence of breaking and stealing.

The two brothers were declared missing by the Edo State Police Command.

The transition of the Olu led to a succession tussle in the kingdom, until Prince Tsola Emiko, son of Olu Atuwatse II, was eventually chosen as the Olu-elect. Though unconfirmed, many say the royal crown was stolen to avoid the coronation of Prince Tsola Emiko as the the Olu.


The police have also sent a letter of invitation to the suspended Ologbosere of Warri, Chief Ayiri Emami, for questioning over the kingship crisis in the Warri kingdom.
