Bianca gets lion’s share of Ojukwu’s estate

•Unknown daughter tops list of children

From PETRUS Obi, Enugu

Controversy followed the late Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, yesterday, as his much-talked about Will was read in Enugu yesterday, where he named an unknown woman as one of his children. Other shockers were the non-mention of Sylvester Ojukwu, who had dragged the Ojukwu family to court for preventing him from performing the ‘dust-to dust’ rites at the late Ojukwu’s burial, in his Will as well as the willing of only one property, in Umudim, Nnewi, to Emeka Ojukwu Jr.

In the Will, read by the Chief Registrar, Enugu Judiciary and probate registrar, Mr. Dennis Ekoh, Ojukwu apportioned the lion’s share of his estate to his wife, Bianca. He also appointed Bianca, the late Igwe of Oraukwu, Emeka Ojukwu and James Chukwuneme as trustees and executors of the documents. The Will stated that only the eight listed people should be regarded as Ojukwu’s children.

They are: Teni Harman, Emeka Ojukwu, Mmegha, Okigbo, Ebele, Chineme, Afam and Nwachukwu. Bianca, who arrived the Enugu High Court premises in a black Prado Jeep at 8:30a.m, could not hide her surprise when the strange name of Teni was mentioned among Ojukwu’s children, as she started whispering with family members, who were in the registrar’s office with her. She was all smiles later, as the will awarded her Ojukwu’s Enugu mansion ‘Casabianca,’ located at No 7 Forest Crescent, GRA, Enugu, which also was named after her. Also, the controversial position of the late Ikemba, in the Ojukwu Transport Limited, was transferred to her and kids.

According to the Will, “Bianca and her children should take over my place at my transport…She may also wish to appoint somebody to represent her at the board….” Bianca also got two property located at Plot 20 Jabi, Abuja, with Certificate of Occupancy number 4405 as well as another property located at Kuje, Abuja. Ojukwu also willed all personal effects, money and cars to Bianca and her children. He also allotted to Bianca two hectares of land at Umuezeani, Umudim Nnewi, if she doesn’t remarry. Ojukwu’s strange daughter, Teni, was allotted Jubilee Hotels, Zaria.

However, when the codicil was read, it was observed that the hotel had been sold, thus she would receive the proceed from the sale. Ojukwu further willed a hectare of land each to all his daughters. He willed a landed property at the traffic light area, in Nnewi, to Afam and directed that his Nnewi property should “remain a binding legacy to us for generations to come.” He willed all his interest at 56 Onwudiwe Street, Enugu as well as his interest in his mother’s plot at Thinkers Corner, Enugu to his nephews, Tom and Robert Bigga.

The late Ikemba directed that every other remaining property, apart from those mentioned in the Will, should be managed by his trustees, who will have the right to dispose of them, to offset any debt in his name, including debts that may have arisen from his burial. None of Ojukwu’s children was present at the registrar’s office when the Will was read yesterday. Family members were however, urged to apply for copies of the Will as well as the codicil, which was prepared by Barr. Emeka Onyemelukwe on December 16, 2009.

When reporters sought his comments on the content of the Will, Bianca declined comments in some and just said a little in others. When asked for comments about Teni, whose name was listed as one of Ojukwu’s children, Bianca refused to answer questions from newsmen. On her nomination to replace her husband in the Ojukwu Transport Company, she simply said: “God is able.

  1. Ojukwu why giving every tin 2 Bianca inluding all ur money? Wot happens 2 Emeka is he not ur first son? In igbo land wen a man’s died its his first son dat will inherit his fathers main share & d rest will b shared among his siblings. Wot did ds woman did 2 u IKEMBA. (ONYE NWANYI NA AFULU OJA, JI UKWU YA AWUNA BEE MUO) DS is not good, its sacrilegious

  2. It has has been the case when any father has stubborn male children. He has been at logger heads with his male children , so I am not surprise at Ojukwu,s sharing of his wills. His first male children chose to rub shoulders with the man when he was alive, so it was a rightful decission taken by Eze Ndi Igbo gburugburu, let it serve as a deterrent to other erring male children in Africa that it,s not all that uhuru when tradition allotted lion shares to their parents properties after death. Western culture has proved otherwise to us all. OBJ no doubt will still take similar decission, let it not be a surprised package to any Nigeria when his will occur, this is natural to any father that has stubborn male children, the man will allocate majority of his property to his female children and that of Stella,s linage. I advised every child to be loyal to his father instead of being rebellious.

  3. @Owerri i align with your comments because some male Children used to support their mothers when the Father marries another Wife, Those Ojukwu senior Boys must have frustrated him during his life time which warranted him to make up his mind to treat them this way.
    Bianca should try and unite all the Children in order to allow peace to reign in the family

  4. To some he remained Controvertial Ikemba in life, and more controvertial in death.

    I was expecting something for Biafra and Uwazuruike.

    Can we see the truth in the saying , “Much property, much trouble” ????

  5. How can Ojukwu do such a thing without even remembering the less priveladge, MASSOB, the entire Igbo nation and even his biological first son. I think Chief Gani’s will should be a guide to those who are interested in writting will but to me the African Tradition is better.

    • Usman or watever your name is wat are you trying to imply or insinuate by Ojukwu didnt remember Biafra or MASSOB in his Will?.Wat will you this cow and almajiris people acheive by always trying to instigate and sow see of discord among the Igbos and Biafra affairs?how did it now concern Igbos(Biafra)and MASSOB about the late Odumegwu Ojukwu Will wen its meant for his families only.Infact i even regret replying this comment to a brainless and cow boy like you Usman

  6. When you dont respect your father what do you expect. If not for Gov peter Obi who will believe that he ojukwu has a male child. A very big lesson to learn

  7. Ojukwu know his family and how to handle it , he is not an ordinary man , he is always a man of wisdom so let be according to his command may God give them spirit of understanding.

  8. Very interesting.But to me it seems as if Gbenga Obasanjo is in trouble if his father Olusegun Obasanjo decides to learn a lesson from what Odumegwu Ojukwu has done.Bianca must have been praying for all these properties before the death of her husband.This is also a big lesson for the male children among the children of a wealthy man.

  9. Cy and Usman wat are you two guys trying to insinuate by that comments of yours.Some of us in Anambra state and Igbo land knows how lebellion,probamatic and stuborn his big sons were to late Odumegwu Ojukwu till his dead,they couldnt even take care of him but Bianca was always by his and shared his boarding and pains and thats how a wise woman suppose to do if she want to get something from him and especially wen its a polygamous family.Igbo adage says that the reason why dog follows the big belle man is that if he didnt purge he might as well vomite so Iyom Bianca knows the attics and tactis and she utilises it very well and i am a witness to the unadulterated love Iyom Bianca showered on our late leader and sage Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu while his big sons abandoned him till death only for them tn come back to fight for his properties

    • OJUKWU IS VERY WISE AND HE KNOW WHY HE DD WHAT HE DID,BESIDE SOME THAT CALL HIM FATHER WHEN HE HAVE DIE,DOME DON’t EVEN DO ANYTHING WHEN HE WAS SICK ,WHAT OF THEY ONE THEY CALL DEBE,THAT FUCK ALL SMALL GIRLS IN LAGOS,I KNOW HE MAY HAVE PROMISE SOME OF HS GIRL FIENDS SOME PART,I LIKE WHAT OJUKWU DD,

  11. Eze ndi Igbo gburugburu, rest in peace. Thank you for compensating Bianca for all the antagonism she received from those older male children. NDEEEWOOO.

  12. People like Usman and Cy dont deserve to comment in this forum becouse its obvious they lack the potential.I know that some people must polticise this wonderfull Will late Odumegwu Ojukwu wrote and am not suprise if more will surface so let us mind the way we comments and meddling in people’s affairs especially wen people like Usman who suppose to be in the street of Kano by now with a plate and cup in his hand begging in the name of Almajiri now comment an issue that does not fit him.Who Dash Monkey Banana,Hahahahaha

  13. BUT SOME THAT THINK THOSE HIS GUYS WILL GET SOMETHING ,SHOULD GO AND SEAT DAWN,..THOSE OJUKWU. BOY REFUSED TO TELL THEIR MOTHERS NOT TO GO, THEM SHOULD STAY AND FOCK THE MAN TILL DEATH ,…BUT THEY CARRY THEIR. FUFU TO ANOTHER MAN,…SO BIANICA DID THAT TILL DEATH SO WHAT DO YOU WANT THE. AN TO DO,Hahahaha me I dey laugh..oooh,What of the DR WERE HE IS NOW

  14. There was a statement in this platform yesterday by one of the commentators when the issue of Ojukwu’s Will to be read came up. He simply said ‘the igbos will be disappointed by Ojukwu when the Will is read’. What has come of it now? If we must tell ourselves the truth, many igbos are disappointed at this Will. This is least expected of a statesman like Ikemba. Why must close to 60% of his assets be Willed to Bianca? What becomes of other children who have got little or nothing. Behold nothing goes to anyone outside the family, no even the orphanage. This is share greed my people. We have nothing to learn from this so called WILL. Odiromma Ikemba…

  15. Efo dont mind that fool calls himself esquire let him keep talking shit.Esquire wat did you know about late Odumegwu Ojukwu,his Will and his families?i said it earlier that no matter good you will see some people who will criticise you.Some of us are criticising late Odumegwu Ojukwu for wise decision you took by even Willing his properties to his families then wat about late Nnamdia Azikiwe who Willed his own to outsiders,motherless baby and left nothing not even pin to his own children and till today who ever hear and know about any of late Zik numerious son or have we forgoting so fast that late Zik married so many wives with uncountable sons and daughters but nobody hear their name in Igbo land but just becouse our great Iroko late Ojukwu Wills most of his properties to his beloved wife Iyom Bianca and her children and even to Emeka Ojukwu jnr,his own daughter and his nephiews some busy body people wount mind their business.Maybe the likes of Usman and Esquire want late Odumegwu Ojukwu to Wills his properties to Igbos(Biafra)and MASSOB before late Ojukwu becomes a great man and i bait you if he make such mistakes this same people and some other unpatriotic and sentimental people will still castigate him

  16.

  17. Go & work hard, eat your bread, be in one mind with one another. What do you wanna tell the children? Pack all the silver & gold, thief all the crude oil, naked you’ve come & naked you are going, it maybe hell where you’ll found your self or Heaven.

  18. Real men dont’ wait to inherit or wait for their fathers WILL to favour them after he must ve died..Ojukwu gave them gud education and a gud competitive stand to take off in life,what re they waiting for again?..i rather make my own wealth than wait for my fathers WILL to favour me..But if i may ask,what re they sharing?ojukwu did not amass wealth and the family in question is a POLYGAMOUS population family..those rude boys of his shld go and learn how to earn money that does not come from inheritance cos there is nothing to share..WARREN BUFFET the 3rd richest man in the world said that d greatest asset he gave his children is training them in school and the family home he will left for them..he worths more than $44billion dollars and ve only about four kids but he told the world that 90percent of his liquid assets is going to MILINDA BILL GATE FOUNDATION.. A CHARITY ORGANIZATION..he said that unearned inherited wealth has a way of making children to be psycologically,emotionally,physiologically and mentally impotent that his children shld not hope to inherit large pie of his wealth but shld learn how to earn money inorder to learn the act of discipline and delayed gratification that helps in building generational wealth..all this brats that is waiting for their parents to die inorder to be on top or inherit their WILL or WEALTH shld ve a rethink cos there is nothing that sweets like the MONEY and WEALTH you amass on yur own.

  19. Ojokwu himself was stubborn during his days so it might not be as a result of stubbornness that he declined to offer anything to some male children. Perhaps they have done thing that broke his heart while living. Apart from the Will, who knows, he might have even cursed them before he died. These children should try and appease their father even on grave so that the rest of their days will be in peace, otherwise I foresee a situation calamity will befall them.

    Those who received largesse, like Bianca, should give freely(Bible says..freely I receive, freely I give) we did not come to earth with anything and must leave with nothing.

  20. @Emeka..you re pleading that Bianca shld help them with part of the wealth?has LEPROSY eaten their hands that they shld not work?that is what happen to kids that put their trust and future in their fathers wealth..Earned wealth is my best bet than inherited one.

  21. Ikemba has spoken and no one has the right to question him. This is a lesson for those children who rub shoulders with their fathers. Bianca should be magnanimous enough to organise and unite the entire ojukwu family and make herself a real mother to all, irrespetive of biological or non biological.

  22. 4 three year the so called Ojukwu was in loga head wth his own father whom he is now willing his wealth. If his son was stuborn to him it is part of his(OJUKWU’S) legacy

  23. Question; who is Sylvester Ojukwu? what and why hanging around the Ojukwus he must have seen the writing on the wall when his father was alive? No surprises at outcome because grown children are likely to be disrespectful to their father’s young wives for their own mother was neglected rubbished probably thrown out contention that made them resentful of everything about the young wives and their father.

  24. Considering the age of Bianca’s Children one will not blame
    People’s General 4 doing what he did.the older children are even older than Bianca.all of them had a sound eduction.by now the suppose to have their own properties they will will to their Children or charity not depending on their fathers.@ 30years Ojukwu have become a force to reckon with.@ over
    50years the elder children are still looking 4ward to their father’s properties.they should emulate Cos Maduka, Coscharis their fellow kins men who didn’t inherit any thing from his parents.yet he succeeded.success is not all about accumulation of wealth rather how the wealth
    impacted on other people’s life.Bianca being a daughter of a rich man and yet she made it good in her life b4 marriage.she should as well teach her own children not to depend on their father’s will rather they should work hard to build their own wealth.
    where i see problem is those children who are already fathers not mentioned or recognized as being sons of Ojukwu.may be DN test will solve the problem.normally in Igbo land the ancestral land in one’s place of birth is shared among the male child which confirms their attachment and recognition to the family ties.
    In all when people give their life to Jesus christ and become born again materialism becomes secondary.
    God who made the Israelite to become rich in the expense of the ungodly nations around them will prosper that person who gave his life to Christ with or without any will.
    May God bless U all,pls stop insulting people on this forum.respect every opinion no matter the tribe the person comes from.we all were created by the almighty
    God.

  25. Y didnt ojukwu remember raph uwazuruke on his wil? I thought he pretend he’s second in command in biafra..”bianca were did u get dat ur charm? Just lend me some.,nw u r happy.

  26. Ojukwu may have received something from his father,then he ought to have given something to his first son no matter what. My advice to Bianca is to find a modest way to unite the Ikemba family for posterity and common sense which indeed is not common

  27. Bianca is willing to Remarry as Ojukwu mentioned in his will,Please i am available, Do not mind that Uwazuruike of a MAN, I knows his plan….But besides all these, why should all these be published in the pages of newspapers all over the world, what a shame????????
