ome masquerades were sighted campaigning for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu during a traditional carnival in Warri, Delta state.
The traditional carnival is known as Anwakere Festival, popularly referred to as the Okere juju festival amongst residents of Warri.
The masquerades in their numbers lined out in colourful costumes made with fabrics of the APC’s 2023 presidential and gubernatorial hopefuls, Tinubu and Senator Ovie Omo-Agege respectively.
It was gathered that APC leader, Chief Ayiri Emami, who is an indigene of the Okere community, facilitated the costuming of the masquerades.
The 2022 edition of the annual Anwakere Festival (aka Okere Juju), which is the 525th edition, rounded off on Saturday, August 13, 2022.
