Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu’s Will Presented at Last: And the Lion’s Share Goes to…

The last might not have been heard of the controversy trailing the death of Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu. Members of the Ojukwu family will definitely be bracing for another round of battle as the will of the late Ikemba Nnewi, was on Friday presented to the family with his widow, Bianca, getting the lion’s share.

The presentation of the will by the Chief Registrar of the Enugu High Court, Mr Dennis Ekoh, was witnessed by Bianca, Mr Val Nwosu, Ojukwu’s first cousin, and Mr Mike Ejemba. In the will, the late Ojukwu identified one Tenny Haman as one of his children.

Ojukwu’s children, as listed are: Tenny Haman, Chukwuemeka Jnr, Mmegha, Okigbo, Ebele, Chineme, Afam and Nwachukwu.

Meanwhile, the Ikemba gave the Casabianca Lodge at No. 7, Forest Crescent, GRA, Enugu, two properties at Jabi and Kuje in the FCT as well as all his money and personal effects to his widow. He also said that Bianca should replace him as the trustee in the family company, Ojukwu Transport Ltd, while also giving her two plots of land in his village at Nnewi. He, however, added that if she re-married, the land should be taken away from her.

The first son, Emeka Jnr., got the family house at Nnewi, while the newly mentioned daughter, Tenny Haman, got the Jubilee Hotel located in Zaria, Kaduna State. The Biafran warlord also shared other landed property in the village among all his children. Ojukwu listed the trustees and executors of the will to include Bianca, Emeka Jnr and Mr James Chukwuneme.

However, reacting to the will, Bianca, who is Nigeria’s Ambassador to Spain, expressed satisfaction with its contents. According to her, “It was a fair will. This time round, he did not disappoint us,’’ she said. The ambassador, however, expressed shock at the disclosure of a new daughter in the family, whom she said had never been mentioned by her husband. None of the children was present at the presentation of the will.
