The community said this in a letter to His Majesty, Ogiame Ikenwoli, Olu of  Warri, dated June 24 and signed by its Chairman, Elder  Omasan Edukugho and Secretary, Elder Buge Edukugho.

Omadino Council of Elders said the decision to suspend the two elders  was reached at an extra ordinary meeting of the council held on June  22, 2018.

They said the decision to suspend one of the elders was, amongst others, over  his alleged failed attempt to secede Omadino community from Warri Kingdom in a sponsored rebellious publication of April 6, 2016  without the consent and approval of the Council of Elders that brought  “great embarrassment, not only to the community but also to the Itsekiri nation in  general”.

They also alleged that the elder, against the directive of the council,  blantantly refused to play his traditional ceremonial role of  welcoming the Olu of Warri during his visit to the community on September 25, 2016.

The Council of Elders therefore urged His Majesty, Ogiame Ikenwoli,  the Olu of Warri to intervene and save the situation in the community.
