The new Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse III, has reversed a curse placed on Nigeria by his grandfather, Ogiame Erejuwa II, following his coronation on Saturday.

Just before delivering a powerful speech, the monarch worshipped the Almighty God with soulful music.

“As the spiritual, cultural, political, and traditional ruler of this land, I, Ogiame Atuwatse III, the 21st Olu of Warri, the first son of Olu Atuwatse II, the grandson of and direct descendant of Olu Erediuwa II who was offended on this throne, hereby, reverse the curse placed over this land.

“In its (the curse’s) place, I release forgiveness and healing to the Federal Government of Nigeria whose might was used to propagate that offence, and I decree unprecedented and an uncommon peace, prosperity, progress, development upon this land,” Atuwatse III said.

Born as Wilson Gbesimi Emiko, the new Olu’s grandfather was the paramount leader of the Itsekiri and was Olu of Warri from 1951 to 1964, and from 1966 to 1986.

Although he did not talk about what really transpired, Atuwatse III explained that his grandfather was furious when he visited late Akenzua II who was Oba of Benin between 1933 and 1978 to recount his ordeal.
