Ojukwu’s hotel turned to warehouse

From ABDULGAFAR ALABELEWE, Kaduna

Another shocker has emerged on the controversial Will of the late Biafran leader, Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, as investigation revealed that the property allotted to the surprise daughter of the Ikemba was sold long before his death. Sunday Sun investigation revealed that the Jubilee Hotel located at Sabon Gari, Zaria, willed to the said surprise daughter of Chief Ojukwu, now belongs to a prominent Zaria businessman, who uses the property as foodstuff warehouse.

When our reporter visited the defunct Jubilee Hotel, part of it, which had collapsed, was fenced with roofing sheets, while the other part, which was a popular drinking joint, is now used as warehouse. However, sources close to the property told Sunday Sun that the property had ceased to be Jubilee Hotel since the 1987 Zaria crisis when the hotel was burnt, except the bar which was still in operation until about four years ago when a businessman bought the property and converted it to a warehouse.

According to our sources, “you see, this part you are seeing was burnt during the 1987 crisis in Zaria. Since then, the building has remained unattended to. But, that other side there, where they use as store now, was used as beer parlour until somebody bought the whole property.” Sunday Sun also gathered that the late Ojukwu also inherited the property from his mother, who managed the business until her death. However, the whereabouts of Tenny Haman, the surprise daughter of the late Ikemba, is not known to the people who live and do business around the defunct Jubilee Hotel.

They told Sunday Sun that they only read in newspapers that Ojukwu’s Will revealed a surprise daughter to inherit the hotel. According to the sources, “all we know is that the property had been sold about four to five years ago, even before Ojukwu died and we are sure the widow of the late Ojukwu, Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu, knows about the sale of the property. “We have never heard about his daughter named in the Will, we just read on the pages of the newspapers that a strange daughter of Ojukwu from an Hausa-Fulani mother, has been given Jubilee Hotel in Zaria.

But, it is possible that such a daughter exists, because Ojukwu seemed to have strong relationship with the North, despite his strong agitation for an Igbo nation. Before he died he said his family should allow the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, to see his corpse before they bury him, and I think the Emir did. So, it is possible that the daughter does exist,” one of the sources said. However, the said owner of the property, Alhaji Umar Farouk, was not around, but his younger brother who manages his business refused to talk to the press about the property, even as he said his brother bought the place more than four years ago.

Another source close to owner of the defunct Jubilee Hotel, Alhaji Farouk, told Sunday Sun that it was a representative of Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu that negotiated on her behalf and sold the property to Alhaji Farouk. According to him, “we have been following the arguments on newspapers, but nobody has come to claim the property. All documents concerning the property are intact. So, there is a solid proof that the property was sold to Alhaji Umar Farouk,” the source stated. It would be recalled that the Will of the late Biafran General was presented to the family with his widow, Bianca, getting the lion’s share and Ojukwu’s surprise love-child, Tenny Haman, unveiled and provided for in the Will.

In the Will read by Chief Registrar of Enugu High Court, Mr. Dennis Ekoh, Ojukwu listed his children as Tenny Haman (love child), Chukwuemeka Jr, Mmegha, Okigbo, Ebele, Chineme, Afam and Nwachukwu. The Will gave the Casabianca Lodge at No. 7, Forest Crescent, GRA, Enugu, two properties at Jabi and Kuje, in the FCT, as well as all his money and personal effects to his widow. It also read that Bianca should replace Ojukwu as trustee in the family company, Ojukwu Transport Ltd., while also giving her two plots of land in his village at Nnewi, adding that if she re-marries, the land should be taken away from her.

The first son, Emeka Jr., got the family house at Nnewi, while the new daughter, Tenny Haman, got the Jubilee Hotel located in Zaria, Kaduna State. The late Biafran leader also shared other landed property in the village among all his children, even as he listed the trustees and executors of the Will to include Bianca, Emeka Jr, and Mr. James Chukwuneme.

    • The Sun, The Sun, The Sun. How many times did I call you? Three times. Leave Dim Ikemba Ojukwu alone to rest in peace. He has served his people & the world well to deserve his rest.

  2. The truth is begining to come out. For sure bianca forged the will. I have said it before Bianca is a very greedy person, she must go to jail for forgry. Yeye woman.

  3. Again this is stale news. It was reported weeks ago that the hotel was sold and that proceeds from the sale of the said hotel should be given to Tenny Hamman. This shows clearly that the will was written long before Emeka Ojukwu passed away. Sunnews thanks for nothing!

  5. Hahahahaha,its obvious this is the hand work of the Bianca adversary and opposition just to tarnish her image.Some of us have read the interview of mr Okwuosa and there is no argument over it that the young lawyer sees it all during and after the life of late Emeka Ojukwu so we all know that some dubious people will make an attempt to counter it.So mr Jon if you dont want to get yourself into trouble for an issue that doesnt concern you i suggest you keep off from the late Odumegwu Ojukwu issue.My question to anybody that is following this write up is if actually Biance did wat they accused her of in this write up or that she joined in writing the Will then she shouldnt be careless to live the name of Teni as the person that inherited the Jubillee Hotel because Bianca we know wount be stupid enough to make such a cheap mistake by making sure that Teni name is not even mentioned as the person inherited the Hotel,so we should mind the way we comment so as not to put ourself into trouble that doesnt concern us.So Jon and some people that might like to follow the bandwagon should please take note

  7. @stine chykee, why warning and threatening jon? people have right to express their minds and feelings. Getting him into trouble is not your business. make your comment, side any party of the family of your choice and leave jon alone……..+2348057323826

    I am beginning to dislike this Bianca of a woman ,who does she think she is, simply because she is a woman does not give her the right to tear Ezeigbo family apart.Nnewi people in general and Ojukwus kings men in particular should rise up and place this stupid woman where she belongs to.

  9. Can anything good comes out of Nigeria? So much trouble in the state of Lagos, Oduduwa & the Northern States of Nigeria. These are the words of my master,keep away from issues concerning the States of Biafra.

  10. pls who ever is manipulating dis will should be careful cuz the truth must come out one day.they should also rethink cuz ojukwu will nt be happi abt this controversy concerning his effort 2 make dem one family.

  11. I have said it and am saying it again, Bianca doctored the will, that will was not from Ojukwu. This lady, is a dangerous woman.

  13. Am only concerned with d issue of Debe & not how d properties were shared,after all he said he is richer than ojukwu & I like that.his case is very sensitive.for me whether he gets any thing is immaterial,what is important is did ojukwu fathered him or not.d will did not address this issue well & its really disturbing.who ever authored the will have been more explicit.for me,it would have been better if ojukwu had acknowledged d fact that he fathered d guy or said otherwise in a plain language.as things stands now d guy is neither here nor there.I pity him!

  14. THERE ARE PAPER-SELLING-HAPPENINGS IN NORTH, EAST, SOUTH AND WESTERN NIGERIA… THE SUN JOURNARLISTS SHOULD LEAVE THE OJUKWU’S ALONE……. GO SEARH FOR BETTER HEADLINES WHICH CAN MARKET YOUR PAPER EVEN MORE THAN YOU THINK.. BIANCA, DEBE AND EMEKA WILL DO…. LET THE OJUKWU’S SOLVE THERE FAMILY WAHALA… WHAT IF OJUKWU NO DIE, UNA 4 NO GET BETTER GIST?

  15. The will reading recognised that the hotel has bee sold and that the proceed will be given to Temi, so why all these from you truoble makers,why not leave the Ojukwus alone?

  17. Bianca, we know you as our daughter, and as such we trusted you. remember that lion begot snake. Please dont mind this half baked juonalists who are tring in one way or the other to pull your leg so that you can talk. the more you keep calm the stupidier they become. Udo dili gi eze nne.
