As expected, the will of late Biafran warlord, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, recently read to members of the family has continued to generate a lot of controversies. Barely 48 hours after the reading of the long-awaited Will left by the late Igbo leader, his disinherited first son, Sylvester, has said he is worth more than the assets mentioned in his father’s Will. But Sylvester, who said he is worth over N3 billion, doubted the authenticity of the Will, describing it as a concoction.

According to Sylvester “Even if it is true, I am worth over N3 billion, which is more than the assets mentioned in my father’s Will,” he said. Speaking with Sunday Sun on phone, he expressed surprise over the content of the Will, saying he did not believe it was indeed drafted by his father. His words: “I am surprised, and I doubt that the Will was drafted by my father. It was a concoction.

Saying the Will seemed to have been drafted in a hurry by people desperate to achieve an aim, he said “But, if it is the true Will of my father, I have no problem with that. After all, this is not the first time a first son is disinherited from his father’s Will.” He said being disinherited from one’s father’s Will does not stop one from being his child. “If it is truly that of my father, being disinherited from his Will does not stop me from being Ojukwu’s first son.”

A legal practioner, Sylvester said that through a DNA test a person could lose his paternity if it is proved that he is not the rightful child of his father. It would be recalled that Sylvester had dragged the Ojukwu family to court for preventing him from performing ‘dust to dust’ rites at his father’s burial. In the controversial Will, the late Ikemba apportioned the lion’s share of his estate to his wife, Bianca, and appointed her, the late Igwe of Oraukwu, Emeka Ojukwu and James Chukwuneme as trustees and executors of the documents.
