    We have not forgotten how he used Amori to form a splinter group in an attempt to disintegrate UPU, that enabled him instal Felix Ibru.
    What is his next agenda with the Urhobos? Is he continuing where Uduaghan left his attempt to debase Urhobo Nation?
    Who is indeed an Urhobo man/woman and who is James Ibori? He empowered some Urhobos then? what led to the fall of Warri and the IOCs leaving?
    So many unanswered question.
