At the time of publication, neither the market nor any of the shops nearby, nor the first bank that is right next to it, had begun operations.

Around 9:30 am, the monarch entered the palace through a jubilant waiting crowd.

He thanked the state commissioner of police for providing security while reiterating his commitment to advancing peace and the kingdom’s overall well-being in his speech.

The crowd was told to remove every piece of furniture from the palace by the excited monarch, who promised to replace them all.

The clergymen he brought destroyed items that were thought to be charmingly scattered throughout the palace.

In the palace, women and children were seen carrying mattresses, air conditioners, chairs, and other valuables. Two young men wore caps that they claimed to be crowns they had discovered inside the palace.

A few women who appeared to be members of a rival group attempted to protest the monarch in the meantime, but they were prevented from getting too close to the palace.

Later, the monarch departed in his car, followed and preceded by a few police patrol cars.

As may be remembered, a faction in the kingdom drove the monarch out of the palace in December 2018 and installed Chief William Onokpite as king. However, he was not recognized by the Delta state government.

After the monarch had departed, battle-ready police officers remained at a number of intersections throughout the town.
