Multiple sources in Delta State has confirmed the death of the Olu of Warri, Ikenwoli Godfrey Emiko.
It was learnt that the monarch passed on at the Lily Hospital, Warri.
Details of the death of the monarch are still sketchy, but our sources say his death might be a result of COVID-19 complications as he might have contracted the virus from the Army GOC who died from it recently.
He was said to have met with the GOC not long ago and the strain suspected to have killed the monarch is the same dangerous strain that claimed the life of the publisher of Leadership Newspaper, Sam Nda-Isaih.
Jungle Journalist Media Limited gathered that an official announcement is expected to be made soon by the Ologbosere of Warri, Chief Emami Ayiri, who, as the traditional Prime Minister of the town, is empowered to break the news of the monarch’s death.
