‘ I, DIM CHUKWUEMEKA ODUMEGWU-OJUKWU… give all my moneys…to my wife Mrs. Bianca Odinaka Olivia Odumegwu-Ojukwu…’



The late Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, willed all his money to his wife, Mrs. Bianca Odinaka Olivia Odumegwu-Ojukwu, according to the bromide of his will exclusively obtained by Sunday Vanguard.

The 16-point will, prepared by the firm of Sir Emeka Onyemelukwe & Associates, is entitled, ‘Codicil, Varying, Revoking and Adding to my Will’, and dated, 16 December, 2009. The document was signed by the former Biafran warlord as the testator and two witnesses: Engr Mse Ezenuba and Sebastian Ray Afadi. It was the first codicil to the late Ikemba’s will dated 9 July 2005. Paragraph 10 of the codicil states how Ojukwu envisaged that peace will reign among his brothers.



He also explained why one of his properties, Nnewi House, in Lagos should not be sold.

Ojukwu was only doing the sensible thing by this will. Bianca's children are still young and she needs funds to give them what the older children have already enjoyed from their dad.

He gave the older children quality education, contacts and a name that opens doors. The female children who I suspect are not as well off as the others got properties. The step brothers were sorted, and what he inherited from his mother he passed on to his maternal relatives.In all fairness, those screaming and tearing their clothes over the will are quite inconsiderate.

The world has changed. Gone are the days when the eldest son inherits all their father's wealth and leave their sibling to come begging for help any time it is required.

This should be a constant reminder to all materialists everywhere... Vanity plus vanity equals vanity... There is no need to kill someone to own a car, a house or whatever you think is important in your life..All that you have today belongs to someone who didn't even know whatever you did to acquire it... And before about 3 generations, they are gone... Be wise, life is temporal. Do not take more than your fill...live and lets live...

May the force be with you on your journey..
