Google Officially Rename Parts of Warri to WADO City As Urhobo Sons And Daughters Push Harder 

The move for the renaming of Warri to WADO City has taken a new twist as Google Officially Renamed  Many Parts of Warri to WADO City.
Following the recent argument between the Itsekiri and Urhobo people of Delta State over who owns the city of Warri and the recent crown of their (Itsekiri) King HRM. Utieyinoritsetsola Emiko–Ogiame Atuwatse lll, the Urhobo Sons and daughters have on their part, changed the name of their territories in Warri to Wado City.It was discovered that Google LLC has officially renamed all Urhobo Cities Under Warri to WADO CITY in their maps.

Our Ladies School, Effurun, Warri now Our Ladies School, Effurun, Wado City.

Robinson Shopping Plaza, Effurun, Warri renamed to Robinson Shopping Plaza, Effurun, Wado City.

Ejes Gist News confirmed with residents in Udu, Agbasa, and other areas of the city that it is the result of a conflict over ‘who owns the city,’ which has been raging for several years between the two major ethnic groups.Below are some of their social media post and photos:

While a name may sound innocuous, it represents an individual’s identity. It not only identifies a person, a place, or an object; it also resonates with the bearer. In our climate, each name carries a distinct vibration that is spiritually potent.

Countries all over the world have changed their names to reflect their historical origins and to demonstrate their identity.


Upper Volta… Burkina Faso

Dahomey….. Benin Republic

Gold Coast….. Ghana

Now let’s come home…

Iluelogbo …. Oweh Logbo


Otibio…… Urerigho.

These names are with us today.

People are known to even change their names to reflect their current status… Onajite becomes Enajite, ….. Ediri becomes Ufuoma

Eghenkefe becoming Aghwaritefe…

So when people are no longer comfortable with WARRI and now advocate for a change, it is a well thought out process for change is the only permanent thing.


WADO as a city will remove the ambiguity and give the owners THEIR TRUE IDENTITY.”



“Did you know that the new name for our territories, Wado City, formerly known as Warri, is gaining tremendous popularity since the majority of Urhobos are so intrigued by it?

When some Nigerians proposed declaring Lagos State a no-land man’s in the past, Awolowo rallied Yorubas and declared that Lagos would be declared a no-land man’s over his dead body because Lagos gives the Yoruba race relevance.

However, the same Awolowo left his Yoruba homeland of approximately 1000 kilometres to rename the Olu of Itsekiri, the Throne of his first cousins, to the Olu of Warri after the White man who founded the city in Urhobo land refused to name their Olu as the Olu of Warri because Urhobo owns the land known as Warri.


Awolowo could not stand up to Lagos being declared a no man’s land to commit similar crimes in other territories.

Awolowo didn’t want to lose his identity, but he desired that others do. We must rename Warri, as Wado City has established itself.

We are capable of accomplishing this. We don’t even require a government or political leaders. With a billboard in the heart of Warri, it is accomplished, and every other anomaly in our territories falls into place easily.


We’re already there.

Wado City, our City formerly known as Warri is a reality.

#wado #wadocity #Urhobo”






  1. This is a welcome development, the itsekiri territory remains warri, the Urhobo’s territory is called WADO CITY. This will stop the argument of who truly own warri. With this peace can reign in Delta state. Up Wado city.

  2. Google did not rename anything. Google allows free editing of addresses and geographical locations. It is the wado city movement pushers who went and put it online

  3. Peace at last… I own, u own warri should be no more, cus I have branded my part WADO CITY, pls rejoice with me ND I with u.

    Delta State will now experience peace, cus WaDo CiTy is of peace path.
    WaDo CiTy to the world

  4. I so love the name it returns the urhobos identity which Obafemi Awolowo and his Itsekiris cousins stole from the urhobos nation because as long as this young urhobo generation is concerned not 1inch or 1cm of urhobo nation land will stolen by any ethnic group whatever be it Itsekiri,Bini,Yoruba,Igbo and/or Hausa this young generation is different from the past generations we don’t take nonsense and Obafemi Awolowo is nothing but a hypocrite who advocate for democracy but use his political power and influence to punish the URHOBOS for voting for Nnamdi Azikiwe a true Democrat and patriotic leader who wanted the best for the whole of Nigeria just like Peter Obi.
