According to reports from Sahara news, the death of the king brought so much tension as many palace workers besieged the adjoining shops selling strong alcoholic drinks to buy from them as they believed it would cure them of COVID-19 should they have contracted it from the monarch.
The palace chiefs can neither confirm or denied this.
“Olu of Warri is dead but the palace chiefs are trying to keep the information hidden from the public till they are sure the time is right,” the source added.
Aged 65 years, Ogiame Ikenwoli, ascended the royal stool of Warri Kingdom on 12th December 12, 2015.
