PHOTOS: Ayiri Emami performs water rituals after removal by Olu of Warri

Ayiri Emami, a billionaire businessman, paid homage to the gods at a river in the state yesterday, September 4, just days after the new Olu of Warri displaced him as Prime Minister of Warri kingdom.


During the Olu’s revalidation of chiefs on September 2, Ayiri, who was opposed to Tsola Emiko’s coronation as the 21st Olu of Warri, was displaced as the kingdom’s Prime Minister.

Ayiri brought some of his supporters to the river today to pay tribute to the gods, who are known as Umale Okun, or “Gods of the Water.”
