Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), the Olufusi of Warri Kingdom, on Tuesday, says legal tussle will not only diminish the Olu crown but will also weaken the strength of the Itsekiri nation.
BIGPENNGR reports that the legal luminary stated this following report that some arrowheads to the royal battle are warming up for legal tussle and a contender to the throne had gone to court over the Olu stool battle.
He, also spoke to reiterate his earlier call that the Olu’s stool issue should be resolved with the Ologbotsere.
He appealed to the gladiators in the ongoing crisis arising from the announcement of the new Olu of Warri to resolve the issue amicably and refrain from taking legal actions against one another.
Sagay, Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), said that those loyal to the Olu-elect, Prince Tsola Emiko should do all they can to get the support of the Ologbotsere of Warri kingdom, Chief Ayirimi Emami, according to report in Daily Independent.
He said “They should endeavour to resolve the issues with the Ologbotsere cooperating. We must avoid any legal tussle or going to court because that diminishes the authority of the crown and by the same token, the very strength and existence of the Itsekiri people who are a very old nation, established since 1480. They should resolve the matter and not diminish that by going to court”.
