The Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse III have paid glowing tributes to the late Amanyanabo of Kalabari Kingdom, Prof. TJT Princewill, Amachree XI, saying his life was one of service and deserving of all honour, even in death.

The Monarch gave the assurances, when he received the delegation led by Prince Tonye T.J.T Princewill.

Speaking when he received the delegation, the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse III described the passing of the King of Kalabari kingdom, King Prof. TJT Princewill as a great loss that has left behind a huge gap and very big shoes to fill.

He said although he was not close to the King before his transition, he was quite proud of the very good things he had heard and promised to send a high-powered delegation to give the Kalabari King a befitting farewell.

Speaking earlier, the Chairman of the Burial Committee and only child of the late monarch, Prince Tonye T.J.T Princewill, briefed the King on all the funeral rites.

Prince Princewill said the delegation was at the Olu’s office in Abuja to personally and formally invite him as a mark of respect and that even though he knew that he was not permitted to attend because of cultural restrictions, “the presence of the Itsekiri ethnic nationality was a strong signal”.

Others on the delegation were Pastor Tonye Cole, Sir Opunabo Inko Tariah and Mrs. Chinwe Ezeanya.
