The attention of the Okochiri Kingdom has been drawn to a video clip post on Facebook and YouTube by a faceless mischevious group claiming that the intervention of HRM King Ateke Michael Tom, JP, Sekuro l, Niger Delta, Amayanabo of Okochiri kingdom, is the only solution to securing their freedom and sustenance of peace.
The Kingdom views linking our Monarch’s name with the video clips as cheap BLACKMAIL and a calculated attempt sponsored by the same forces who undertook a similar exercise just to tarnish the hard earned image of our traditional ruler as the tempo of political activities increase.
We want to reaffirm that our Mornach has in the past ten years spent his hard earned resources, energy and God given wisdom for the promotion of peace, empowerment of youths, women group’s and socio-cultural organization in the Niger Delta.
Our monarch believes that the era of using arms or force in achieving any legitimate cause is over and insists that only dialogue can bring about desires results.
To this end, the Okochiri Kingdom calls on the security agencies to fish out these miscreants and their sponsors, warning all detractors that we will resist every effort to discredit, defame and malign his character.
