The Olu Of Warri, Ikenwoli Godfrey Emiko, has passed on barely a week after his fifth coronation anniversary.
Reports say the monarch allegedly died of COVID19 complications on Monday.
He was said to have met with the late Major General John Irefin, who died earlier this month from COVID-19 complications too.
The late monarch was born on March 19, 1955 to Olu Erejuwa II who reigned between 1951 and 1986. Ikenwoli, the 20th Olu of Warri, ascended the throne on December 12, 2015.
