Ojukwu’s will to read today


The Will left by the late Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu will be read today in the Enugu High Court, Daily Sun can reveal. Ojukwu died on November 26 last year in a London hospital. The registrar of the Enugu High Court had during the week directed the Ojukwu family members to come to the court today for the reading of the Will.

According to some legal experts proficient in the writing of Wills, Ojukwu’s Will was expected to put to rest the number of children the Ikemba Nnewi had, as the Will was expected to allocate resources to them. The reading of the Will, the experts also said was expected to settle some of the problems that cropped up in the Ojukwu family, particularly that of who is his original first son. After the death of the Ezeigbo Gburugburu, Debe Sylvester Ojukwu and Emeka Ojukwu Jnr had risen up to claim to be his first son: “So, it is hoped that when the Will is read today, the late Igbo leader may have laid down some clues on how to resolve this issue.”

It is also hoped that Ojukwu might deem it necessary to state who replaced him in the Ojukwu Transport Company where he served as one of the directors before he died, they guessed. Besides these two critical areas, the experts said Ojukwu’s eight children would also know the property and other assets bequeathed to them by their father. But as Ojukwu was known not to have amassed wealth when he was alive, the children may not have much to share, more so when Ojukwu returned some of the landed property donated to him back to their original owners.
