Anaigwu also said he was not aware of the controversies in Itsekiriland over the passage of the royal father.

He said: “Each community in Delta State has laid down rules/tradition and ruling houses; so Itsekiri will not be different.

“The Delta State Government has not been informed that the Olu of Warri has passed away. For us, we are not aware that Olu of Warri has died.
