I have not met  HRM King Ateke Tom who is the  traditional ruler and the first Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom- on one on one bases but I have always celebrated him

In the maiden edition of the international magazine brand called Richlist we used his story as deep philanthropist as part cover

King Ateke Tom who was the former leader of the Niger Delta Vigilante, an ethnic Ijaw militia in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria , was on August 2007, following days of gun fights between various militia groups and security forces in Port Harcourt, wrote to the Governor of Rivers State Celestine Omehia, requesting amnesty in response to an offer of clemency and rehabilitation the government had offered to militia who surrendered...it was a historic landmark record

He is 60 today and I felt a token tribute on him will go a long way

* Ateke ...man of his people

Here is a king loved by his people and a King who loves his people
