Help!! My Father's Brother Wants To Inherit Some Of His Properties by Alexas58: 6:09am On Nov 19, 2017
Please am in need of advices here

My dad has a younger brother whom he trained to the university before he died, being his only brother!
My dads father died when he finished secondary school and my dad was the only one that the family could look up to. So he did some jobs, got some money and trained his younger brother to the university level..

My uncle graduated 10 years ago and nothing to show of it.. My father tried giving him a work to do in a bank, he refused the work and started having problems with my father.

Fast forward now my dad is late, has left behind some kids which are in the university and others are still attending school.

Instead of my uncle to put hands with my mum and burry my father, he is busy dragging my mum to the village that they should share some of my father's property with him, saying that my dad never did anything for him, meanwhile my dad trained him to the University which he never did to any of his children before he died.

Please..my need for posting this is to know if there is any place or anywhere that says that my Uncle must inherit a part of my late father's property, because its part of this property we the children are going to use and establish ourselves and my dad gave a wish that nobody should sell any of his lands while on the sick bed!

Please which legal backing and traditional backing can we use to prevent my uncle from going near that land!..because that land is worth hundreds of millions of naira now!!
Thanks


Please I need solutions too..because we are suspecting him of killing my father because of all his actions!...

Thanks

This happens when you give your extended family too much Lee way.

Start succession proceedings in court. Its an application for you and your father's children and wife to inherit from him.

Don't include your extended family in the proceedings. Just his children and wife. Be bold and ready to fight because those people can leave you in the streets if you smile with them.

There's a good lawyer whom I used to know whilst gallivanting in Port Harcourt, I think he's from Rumuigbo, so he'd be in a better chance to help.

He's a very understanding lawyer try contacting him on Facebook Njimowhor Okocha if you're lucky and convincing he may take you on pro bono.

Best of luck.

There are some standard forms you fill with details of his assets, dependants and liabilities (debts, loans etc)

It also conations a form whereby you and your mother or just her apply to be the administrator of his property which means to take care of it for a few months and facilitate it's subdivision among his children and wife. It only takes months. Not sure of Nigeria coz am not there.

Its a process you can start yourself with help from court registry. Its best you get a lawyer to start the process because the paperwork can be confusing.

Since your dad died intestate apply to the courts to inherit his properties.... Since your mom is legally married to him all is very simple. Start early. She should stop going to those family meetings... Or else she is close to her death.

Meanwhile she should not quarrel with the family members... But diplomatically disengage from them.

Your uncle is still family.

Your mom shouldn't be stingy, she should give him some properties. That's exactly what your late dad will have done for his brother.
After all, you said he isn't doing so well now.

She should give him some.
Just like your dad died to leave them, he will too.
Life is vanity upon vanity.

I'd also advice you guys strive hard for yourselves and don't count so much on your dad's properties. He worked for them, work for yours too.
They are just a bonus and not the principal.

Be informed that your late father brother will be given land to build if he has requested, but that land must be your grandfathers property.

He can't be given anything from your late fathers property but he is entitled to get something from your grandfathers property which is his own father. No be your papa alone waka come

I'm guessing your grandfather died without sharing his property? As such your father took over his properties being that your uncle was young then?

After your uncle came of age, your dad should have given him a portion of their father's property. .. which I guess he didn't do.. and he died young according to you hence unprepared.

Your uncle is right in wanting his possession. . even if you go to court you wouldn't win.. how can you guys say he wouldn't get even a portion of land from what your dad took over from their father? or did your grandfather share the property before he died?

And stop all these your dad sent him to school and all. ..and so?

Imagine your elder brother taking over everything your dad has and leaving nothing for you.

Your family better reasons well and does things accordingly, land war is usually bloody.

administration of estates law protects your mum and the children. furthermore Ukeje vs Ukeje allows a woman to inherit. must I add the constitutional provision about no discrimination based on sex or manner of birth?
the property involved was it in your fathers name? did it belong to him outrightly or inherited family property?
if it was inherited family property, Native law will determine the sharing formula and yes your uncle has a portion. PS this depends on the customs of your tribe
however if it was acquired by daddy during his lifetime, then your uncle is just being greedy.
to protect yourself, get probate forms and fill. do not institute a case against the administration yet as it might lead to govt managing it.
go round all the properties and mark this property is not for sale.

Sorry this is happening to you, it also happened to us too and we were left with nothing, and life is funny because all of them right now are nowhere at this moment, they are all living in penury some died a frustrating death not like we wished for it, and things are way better for my mother. I don't know what advice to give you, just ensure you work hard and be ambitious, imagine someone who was married to obasanjo friend and spending cash like mad years later calling to beg you for money after their family did what they did to you. Take care bro

If u can take legal actions, fine.

I will advise tho, a man's wealth consisted not of the things he possesses.

Your life is more impt than millions of naira. If u said u suspect ur father was murdered diabolically, then why do u want to fight.

That u are the first son doesn't mean u will put ur head on the chopping block. I don't even know how old u are.

Why will ur dad, while on d sick bed be worrying about selling of land. Now he has left it behind. Sorry for ur loss, I knw it's painful. I am just trying to show u there is nothing in this earth. Don't be driven by material wealth, be driven by the wisdom of God.

I am almost certain u are Igbo, nwannem, listen to me, jiri ya nwayo. U have unborn children, don't die in a fight that claimed your father's life. To what end.

If ur uncle says the land shld be sold and money shared, his life will still not amount to anything years from now so the most impt thing is your wellbeing, that of your mother and siblings.

Stubbornness is not bravery. Use wisdom.
