COURT DECLARES BIANCA OJUKWU AS RIGHTFUL BENEFICIARY OF THE LATE IGBO LEADER’S ESTATE

A High Court sitting in Enugu State has ruled in favour of Bianca, widow of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu as rightful beneficiary of the late Igbo leader’s estate.

The judgment was delivered in a suit instituted by Chief Debe Odumegwu Ojukwu.

Debe had approached the court seeking to be declared the first son of the late Dim Ojukwu.

The plaintiff had also sought an order restraining the defendant, Mrs Bianca Odumegwu-Ojukwu from interfering with the administration of the estate of the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.

He also claimed entitlement to letters of administration of the late Odumegwu-Ojukwu’s estate.

The Biafra leader, Odumegwu Ojukwu died on November 26, 2011.

His wife, Bianca, who is the first defendant, as well as Mr James Ezike, the second defendant, had been named within his will, as trustees and executors of his estate.

This matter was brought before the court in 2013 challenging the validity of the late Ojukwu’s will by the plaintiff, Chief Debe Odumegwu-Ojukwu who though claiming to be the first son of the deceased, the late Ojukwu did not mention or acknowledge in his will as his son.
