Olu of WarriThe Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has condoled with the government and people of Delta State over the death of the Olu of Warri, His Majesty, Godwin Edomi, Ogiame Atuwatse II.

The monarch reportedly passed away in Lagos on Friday night after a brief illness.

The speaker, in a condolence message issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Mr Turaki Hassan, on Monday, said the country had lost one of its revered traditional rulers.

“The late monarch was a father for all and consummate lawyer whose 28 year reign brought peace and tranquility amongst his people.

“I am deeply touched by the news of the demise of the Olu of Warri. I pray God gives his family, his subjects and the people of Delta State the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss”, it stated.

The statement, which said the late monarch lived an exemplary life worthy of emulation, urged the people of Warri to honor him by living in peace and harmony.

“The late Olu’s demise was a big loss not just to the Itsekiri nation, but Nigeria at large.

“As people of faith, we know that he has gone to rest as all mortals must die”, the statement stated.
