Let’s give a brief info about the Kalabari Kingdom.
The Kalabari Kingdom, also called Elem Kalabari (New Shipping Port) is the independent traditional Kingdom State of the Kalabari people, an Ijaw ethnic group, in the Niger River Delta. It is recognised as a traditional state in what is now Rivers State, Nigeria.
The Kingdom was founded by the Great Amachree I, forefather of the Amachree Dynasty, which is now headed by the Princewill family.
The Kingdom is ruled and controlled by King Amachree XI (Professor Theophilus Princewill CFR), along with his Council of Chiefs, most of whom, are royal princes. Together, they make up the traditional Kalabari government, similar to a royal court.
Over 50 Chiefs from the Kalabari Council paid a condolence visited the residence of High Chief (Dr.) Olu Benson Lulu-Briggs, OON, DCF, DSSRS, Iniikeiroari V of Kalabari Kingdom, Paramount Head of Oruwari Briggs House of Abonnema.
The Chiefs were received by Dr. Mrs. Seinye Lulu-Brigss, the wife of High Chief (Dr.) O. B. Lulu-Briggs.
