Sir Azuka Okwuosa: Why Ojukwu disowned son



After the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu’s Will was read in an Enugu High Court last week, his son, Emeka Ojukwu Jr, claimed that the Will was not genuine, arguing that the lawyer said to have prepared the Will, Chief Emeka Onyemelukwe, was not his father’s lawyer.

After Onyemelukwe replied Emeka Ojukwu Jr, last Monday and insisted the Will remains sacrosanct, a close associate and confidant of the late Ikemba, Hon (Sir) Azuka Okwuosa, has urged the Ojukwu family to sheathe their swords and stop washing their dirty linen in public.

Okwuosa, who began to associate with Ojukwu after he returned from exile in 1982, said the late Igbo leader once told him that Chief Onyemelukwe was indeed preparing his Will.

He revealed the encounter Debe Sylvester Ojukwu had with the late Ezeigbo Gburugburu that probably led to the exclusion of his name in Ojukwu’s Will despite efforts by Bianca, while Ojukwu was still alive, to integrate him into the family.

Okwuosa, who ran for Anambra senatorial seat in 2007 under the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) platform, also said Ojukwu told him about his “strange” daughter, Teni Haman, adding that the Ikemba did not marry her mother officially.

Looking at his long relationship with Ojukwu, he said the Biafran leader would not be happy over the controversy trailing his Will, and advised the family to resolve their grievances amicably to protect the family’s image. Excerpts…


My relationship with the late Ikemba

I have been very close to the late Dim Chukwuemeka  Odumegwu-Ojukwu since 1982 when he came back from exile. I have been a top confidant to him, I associated with him, I shared the same passion with him, the same ideals; as a matter of fact, it was his ideological conviction that endeared me to him. Because of that he accepted me as part and parcel of his family and I saw that as a rare privilege. I was with him throughout his turbulent period when he came back from exile for almost 10 and when the property of the dynasty of Ojukwu was confiscated. I was there with him up to the point the properties were restored by the late former head of state, Gen. Sani Abacha. I was with him throughout the period of recovery, and at Queen’s Drive, when he went there and they tried to eject him, I was with him. I was with him through thick and thin until he went to court through his lawyer, the late Chief Rotomi Williams, where he was able to get justice from the court in Lagos and subsequently the rest of the properties were released. Fortunately, I was so close to him to the extent that he actually gave me the baptism of fire in the murky waters of Nigeria’s politics. He was instrumental of my being chairman of the old Nnewi North Local Government Area from 1994 to 1996 when I left office. Subsequently, in 1999, I was Commissioner for Works and Transport in Anambra State, I left in 2001; in 2003 during the formative stage of APGA, he called me specifically to join hands with him for a new rediscovery of the Igbo agenda, and I resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and joined him because of my ideological conviction for what he really represented for our people. And ever since I have been very faithful and close to him, and I still do even now that he is no more; this ideals still endure to me, these are the only way I believe he can be remembered and immortalized.

Controversy trailing Ojukwu’s Will

I see the Will as the personal wish of the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, because most of what the Will contains, I wasn’t there the day it was read and I am not supposed to be, but I know that most of the things in the Will are not strange to me, because these are things he had discussed with his close confidants over the years. He was a man that would ask you a question to know your thought formation, though he was a man that knew what he wanted to do and was not a man that could be easily influenced on the spur of the moment; he would look at issues and decide on them. To me, I see the Will as his last wish and I believe that actually the resultant effects of actions and reactions that trailed the Will are actually what are worrisome to me, because I know that up till now we are still mourning the great Ikemba, and materialism should not be the bedrock of people very close to him. To me, joining issues on the pages of newspapers is rather very unfortunate. I know every member of that family and I have respect for all of them, starting from the wife, Ambassador Bianca Odumegwu-Ojukwu; I know Emeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu Jr, who was also very close to be a friend because of my relationship with his father; the younger brother, Okigbo, the sister, Mimi, Ebele and the children of Bianca – Chinemerem, Afam, and Nwachukwu and the rest of them. To me, I believe these are very responsible characters by every parameter of judgment. So, that is actually what baffles me with the level of tirade we are seeing on the pages of newspapers. But I must really commend Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu because I have never seen anywhere she spoke about this Will; she has remained silent and focused. So, I am also appealing to the rest of the family to emulate that sense of honour; people are bound to disagree, but when you disagree, you don’t disagree on the pages of newspapers, this is purely a family issue that can always be resolved in a family way. I have also been privileged to see a man who willed all his assets and belongings to his dog, that is his own wish, and he is entitled to it. So, I believe Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu is entitled to whatever is contained in his Will. The only way we can honour him, the only way we can immortalize him, and the only way we can rever those convictions and ideological beliefs he stood for that are enduring as a legacy to the Igbo nation and entire Nigeria is not to do anything that will diminish his status, anything that will diminish what he stood for our people. I believe this issue is very simple; if there is any point of disagreement, there are two options: either they come together as a family and look at it; I don’t think that option has been explored, so, why not explore that option? On the alternative, if one thinks these issues cannot be resolved in an amicable way, there are other proper ways it can be addressed; if it is inevitable, one can quietly go to court and challenge it. These two options have not been explored, so why start throwing diatribes on the pages of newspapers? It is as if the bedrock of what Ikemba actually represented is about materialism to some people, which is actually what I am quarrelling with, because anything that will diminish the image, character and what Ikemba stood for, people like me will stand firm to make sure we oppose such retrogressive ideas and actions.

Ikemba’s number of children and Sylvester Ojukwu

I was privileged to have personally discussed this issue with the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, precisely when the properties were released to the family through Ikemba. Sylvester Debe went to the JAMB Office, as it is called, one of the father’s properties in Ikoyi, and occupied it. Ikemba called me and said, come let’s go and see what is happening there; when we got there we saw Debe with two suitcases in one corner of the building and Ikemba asked him, “What are you doing here?” He asked him this question three times and he did not talk, and Ikemba told him, “If you say I am your father, prove yourself” and he didn’t answer that question, too. And he told him that the best way to prove himself was not to occupy the property, because that property was actually where Ikemba’s father lived and by extension it was like an Obi of the father and by extension Obi to Ikemba. And Ikemba told him, “If you call yourself my son, you cannot occupy my Obi while I’m still alive.” Subsequently, I also remember when some community people from Umudim, Nnewi, came to Ikemba barely two weeks after that visit to the JAMB Office; they told him that they came to tell him that he had to accept Sylvester as his son. I remember what Ikemba asked them in Igbo parlance: “Is it the community that tells somebody that this is your son, or is it somebody that will tell the community that this is my son?” At that point, you can understand that Ikemba was somebody that was always philosophical when it came to certain things. But actually, I have no doubt in my mind, Ikemba never said that Debe is not his son, but all I know is that he never accepted him while he was alive. But, to me, I share Debe’s passion, because I know that Debe is one of the most responsible characters I have ever seen in and around that family. I have been visiting Ikemba periodically, so when I was counting the children I noticed that he was conspicuously omitted in the Will. So, who am I to challenge the wish of the great Ikemba? But the only thing I can say is that if… I don’t know if we will even have an opinion about that, because if we do, I know that somebody like Bianca had made case for Debe before to be incorporated into the family, but Ikemba had his own ideals that were sacrosanct to him, he knew his reasons and nobody should challenge it. I don’t want to go further than this; so, to that extent, he was not included in the Will, but I know that when he lost his mother, Bianca went for that burial about 10 years ago at Udi, Enugu State. Bianca and Debe are very close; she went to that burial and came back, even with little resentment from Ikemba, she still attended the burial and Debe always visits the house, he is a likeable character, and likeable personality; but the most important thing now is not whether somebody’s name is in the Will or not, the issue is that the Will is out and it is out, and there are proper ways to go about these things.

Ikemba told me of Teni Haman

He mentioned the issue on three occasions to me in a lighter mood; so, it didn’t come to me as a surprise when I saw it in the Will. And anybody who was really close to Ikemba; even when I read Emeka Jr’s interview he also acknowledged the fact that his father told him about that lady, so it is not strange to me. He told me she is actually his daughter he had many years ago, but he didn’t tell me when. I don’t think he was married to the mother, but the only thing is that when you have a child you know that this is your child and you have passion for the child, then you have the right to choose either to accommodate that child in your Will or not; so to me, I believe Ikemba had spoken and who am I to say otherwise?

Bianca getting lion’s share of Ojukwu’s assets in the Will

To start with, I have been privileged to go through the content of that Will; I have a different notion completely. I wouldn’t say Bianca had a larger chunk per se; if you look at it superficially, you might say yes, but actually when you look at it deeply… if you look at that Will, you will discover that the only commercial property of the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu on Sokoto Street in Onitsha was given to Emeka Jr, it was even given to him before Ikemba died. So, seeing the other ones in the Will I was not surprised, and the house on Forest Crescent, GRA, Enugu, you know Ikemba was not a materialistic character and he didn’t really have much, but you could see he was living in a rented house at Independence Layout and yet, that was the man who was military governor of the Eastern Region, a man who was head of state of a sovereign nation for almost three years and he never had a single property in any of the state capitals in the South East. And you will also realize that he was instrumental, and through his legacy, APGA was able to win elections in Anambra State and recently in Imo State. I challenge anybody to tell me otherwise. Ikemba had no single property in Awka till his death, not even in Owerri. So, after living in a rented house in Independence Layout, he eventually, through concerted efforts between him and his wife, Bianca, were able to build the house on Forest Crescent. And ever since they have been living there. And he had strong passion for Bianca from the onset, he loved her so much and she was the woman who stayed with him up to his trying moments, and during his sickness. So, if you look at the inscription on the gate of that house, it is CasaBianca; it wasn’t by accident, I know Ikemba in his rhetoric; if you look at his vehicles, you will see Ezeigbo 1 or Ndigbo or Ikemba; so, one had expected that that property on Forest Street would have been named Obi Igbo or something like that, but he chose to name it CasaBianca. That will tell you he had already made up his mind while he was alive that the property belongs to Bianca, just like the one he gave to Emeka Jr at Sokoto Street in Onitsha. Then, the one he willed to the daughter in Zaria, the other ones were actually the properties of the larger Ojukwu family, the estate of his father, Sir Louis Philip Ojukwu. Actually, you know they never shared anything in their family. So, after the release of their property, they have over 90 properties scattered all over the nooks and crannies of this country, and Ikemba was controlling about six. He was conscious of the fact that the properties were a collective interest concerning the larger family, they made concerted efforts for these properties to be shared in their life time, maybe he knew this will not be actualized in his life time, so if you look at that Will, he said he advocated for these properties to be shared and in sharing the properties that 29 Queen’s Drive otherwise known as Vilaska Lodge, Ikoyi, they have a special passion for the place because it was where he made history, where he started his struggle towards recovering his father’s patrimony. So, he said he would appreciate if that place is considered as part of what he would get, among others that would be given to him, and that whatever that would be given to him, he wanted the wife to manage it on behalf of his other children, and should be shared equally among the children of the first wife and Bianca’s children. So, to that extent, you cannot say that Bianca had the lion’s share; that she had a managerial scope doesn’t mean those properties are allocated to you; a man has the right to say I want this person to manage this thing to a particular time, only him knew the reason. The other house at Nnewi was given to Emeka Jr, so I don’t understand the issue of large chunk being given to Bianca, though that is not the subject for now, but even if somebody wishes otherwise, my advice is to resolve it amicably or go to court in the interest of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu; for what he stands for, his name should not be messed up because of personal interest over material things.

Why some members of the family are complaining

This is a big question because I wouldn’t know why, but the only thing I can say is that it is just human imagination and expectation. I might wish my dad would give me 50 per cent of his estate if he dies, and if at the end of the day he gives me 10 per cent, I may start complaining, but my complaint would be inconsequential because that was my dad’s wish. So, maybe expectations, to a reasonable extent, might be the basis for these agitations we are seeing today, which, to me, are really unnecessary. There are two issues now; there is this contention from what I read in the newspapers that the Will was falsified or was not genuine, but I do know actually that if you look at the trustees and executors of that Will, these are people who were very close and top confidants of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu. One is late, the Igwe Emeka Ogbunide, the late Igwe of Oraukwu, an architect by profession and a very close confidant of Ikemba; I know of Mark Ezemba, who was Ikemba’s best man during his wedding in 1994 or 1995 or so, at Abuja, the reception took place at Nicon Hilton, I was privileged to be one of the page boys as a local government chairman. So, Mark Ezemba was there with him and ever since he has remained a close confidant of Ikemba. Then James Ezike who is also one of the closest allies of Ikemba, a lawyer of long-standing, he handled Ikemba’s election petition at the Election Petitions Tribunal in 2003 during his presidential campaign bid; he is one of the trustees and executors of that Will; so, to my mind, these are people who are impeccable, who are very close and people who have nothing to gain by going against the Will of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu. I can vouch for them and anybody who knows Ikemba knows that these are the closest people to him. And, of course, the lawyer, Barrister Emeka Onyemelukwe, since Ikemba came down to Enugu, he has been part and parcel of the retinue of friends who have been going to Ikemba. After seeing him on several occasions, I was privileged to have asked Ikemba what the man’s mission was and Ikemba told me in confidence that this man was actually helping him to put his Will together. So, I was surprised when I started reading on the pages of newspapers that he was never the lawyer that wrote the Will. I say this thing for the sake of posterity, I say this because truth is always sacrosanct, I don’t care, people can disagree, but the truth must be told, people like me cannot fold our hands and pretend as if everything is normal, I owe that to posterity, to speak the truth. If the content of the Will is not palatable to anybody, let’s not take to press war, it doesn’t augur well for the image of the Ojukwu family, it doesn’t even augur well for those who are making such press utterances. It is very unfortunate and I know that whatever place the great Ikemba is now in his grave, he will not feel good about this recent development.

  4. Olaseni Sobande on

    The problem is that the Igbo are always over-rating themselves and Achebe acknowledges that much in his latest book. They are simply empty barrels that make the loudest noise which is the reason why nobody can tolerate them. They haven’t learnt that there is strength in humility and there is a massive difference between being brash and being strong. They will soon learn that the silence and seeming timidity of the Yorubas is strategic. Awolowo didn’t make much noise before making Ojukwu scampered for safety with his tail between his legs during Biafra war and the Yorubas will silently deal with them again. They just make it so difficult for people to befriend them. Sometimes I wish I can buy the Igbos for what they are worth and sell them for what they (Igbo) think they are worth…..what a great profit I will make.

      • does that make you the son of a virgin better than others?, i am not sure who you are talking to.but if it is me,i ll say that i am that i am. i am

    • Sobande, What has the Ibo’s overating themselves got to do with the issue being discussed. You are very myopic, & you have phobia for Ibo. What is the Yoruba’s afraid of.. If your father was give £20 pounds in 1970 to start life afresh when he had 20million, what would he have achieved? We know that your people are lazy intelectualy and cannot afford to compete with the Ibo’s in a level playing ground. You should learn to stick to issues being discussed at all times because there nothing the Yoruba’s have that the Ibo’s dont have more

    • No .No, No. You do not insult a race because some few are arrogant. Please stop ethnic bashing. If you have genuine comment to make about an individual, do it and stop at that.

    • This is a family issue. Do not start this urgly conversation. But when I thought about it, I’m sure that this comment is not from a Yoruba person, but from an Igbo man in order to start an ethnic bashing conversation. Let Ojukwu and his family duke it it out. I don’t give a hoot.

    • Uzoh from lagos on

      Olesande! you brain is as dull as a condenmed muoluwe! If you have sense you will not open that your rutten and coward mouth to abuse a tribe that owned 40% of landed property of the South west State of Nigeria. Was it by magic they aquired those property? You do not challege the God’s annoited people of the south eastern Nigeria. They are gifted by nature. They are not cowards as you can see in the efe nmanu/ewedu people. They are not stealing from Federal government by pen, self struggle, determination is the simbol of the Igbos. Be warn idiot!

    • @ olaseni, You have demonstrated your foolishness and stupidity.Your sence of reasoning is porous.I can bet that you are either a drop out or a complete ilitreate,Look at your comment, does it have any bearing on the subject matter.People who dont have parents should not expose their foolishness on this forum.You are attacking a whole tribe.You will die while that tribe will excel.Jealousy will only kill you.I bet you even the house you live will be bought by these people and you become a tenant to them.You cant beat them.You know it.You dont have to show that you didnt go to school on this forum.This is for people who know the value of education.Please keep off.

    • @Olaseni Sobande-I wish you had known your father,that’s your greatest undoing in life,back stabbers always pay big.

    • Mr Sobande,I really honour you as a true born Yoruba with that quality we are well known for (Astuteness and Wisdom). I could only hope they would learn from your idea and knowledge and get their selves on the right path to greatness through Humility rather than aggression and overzealousness.

    • You can take a dive in bar beach if you can tolerate us.Who care about your tolerance.You know within your heart of hearts what is paining you is your hiddious complex resulting from your lack of that which an average Igbo has got, that natural endowment which stands him tall and shoulders above genetic haters like you.We are matching forward as no amount of your hates can dim the love God has lavished in us.Like Our Jewish brothers,we are who we are and not even united nation votes could undo what Jehova has done.And it pleases him the way we are and that is what counts for us and not your hates and interlarance.

  5. Onye Chief you have said it all if i may say, But Kindly call those big heads in Ikemba’s house to order and respect themselves, Anambrarians are too materialistic with money e.t.c and this is such an example now and side effects..Besides if they are brave,educated and enlightened enough,they will see reason’s because they are not hungry

  6. I pray that God ll intervain in this matter so that peace ll reign. People should learn to pay a price for peace. If i am Ojukwu’s son, i should follow his legacy, because just like Jesus, he humbled and denied himself the comfort of this world and God lifted him up and gave him name above other names and you know what happens when this name is mentioned.

  7. Phi 2:1 If [there be] therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,Phi 2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, [being] of one accord, of one mind.Phi 2:3 [Let] nothing [be done] through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.Phi 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.Phi 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:Phi 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:Phi 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:Phi 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.Phi 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:Phi 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

  8. This kind of war over properties is not peculiar to Ojukwu’s family or the Igbo’s generally..Late MKO Abiola’s case was even far worse..His concubines were innumerable and typical of Yorubas the Abiola family even used juju to fight themselves..No bribe is perfect..Yes Igbos make too much noise with very little matured tactical strategies in achieving what they want..They are too over-zealous and desperate for money to the extent of wiping their whole family out by all means for money .Yorubas are bloody traitors,this has benefited them,no doubt..They are so fetish and tribalistic that they have very shallow and myopic judgement for other tribes..They are not the most educated presently anyway,neither are they the smartest..Hausas continue to be clouded in political tussle for power and religious bigotry..They are opportunists and d most backward in human endeavours,home and abroad aside few political robbers amongst them…………SO WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT………………………

  9. Thank you so much mr Okwuosa for exposing the without minding who it might hurt and i hope that some people who were calling Iyom Bianca names can now retrace their step and even apologise to her in this forum because truth have been hit like a nail on the headAs for you Olaseni Sobande let me reserve my comment were you are because as far as we Igbos(Biafar Jews)we are the gaint of Africa and you Yorubas will forever be beneat and and worship us.We Igbos are radder in which other tribes in Nigeria uses to climb especially Yoruba and Housa and you Yorubas will die in enviness like your god Awolowo did.I said to myself that by the time i went through people’s comment and if i didnt see any Yoruba man criticising Igbos then this forum will never worth it or will never get interested by the day and i believe that more Yorubas who will criticise this my comment and Igbos as a whole will emerge and am beginning to enjoy the Yoruba lousy mouth even the more,hahahahahaha.Ndi Ofe Mmanu


  10. olaseni…. I wonder whats ur biz in ikemba and his will to warrant causing a race and talking trash. Look at the dirty yoruba tribe with no decency dat you emanate from to talk rubbish. Shut your nonsense and make your point then leave… Than dragging your pathological insanity and ethnic myopicness and hate into every vance u spit. Olodo

  11. Any person with common sense will not have a hard time seeing that the will actually represents the intentions of Dim Emeka Ojukwu. He has the right to say who will take his place on anything that belongs to him. How can Bianca forge a will and put a condition in the “will” which prevents her from getting married and running away with her loot? It doesn’t make sense! If her intention is to take most of what belongs to Ojukwu’s family, why should she tie herself down with the same family after getting all the things that she wants? She is young enough to move on with another person and start a new life for herself. The lady showed love to her old man and her man returned sweet love to her. If a 22year old heart throb went against her father to marry a man whose age was closer to her fathers, loved the man right, had children for him and stayed true to him till the end. DAWG! she deserves whatever the man left for her.

  12. and for your info…. You legend awolowo was a complete looser in the larger committee. Go ask. Its on records that no tribe in nigeria can compete with igbos and that yoruba is ofcourse much more jealous of that than any other tribe. But you guys would perpetually loose out. Check your locality and ask… Who kept you alive? You wil be marvelled to see that is igbos. Omo ngbati like you. C dis onye ofe mmanu o

    • Yamiri, you are onye ofe mmanu o. You are an idiot. What else can you do than sell spare parts. Yoruba can compete and surpass Igbo any time.

    It is unfortunate that people out side my beloved Ikemba’s family have chosen out of love to plause for Ikemba’s wish and also accepted his mistakes as necessary human errors but members of his family have chosen otherwise for selfish reasons .

    Nigeria’s Amalgamation Expires In 2014
    The amalgamation of southern and northern Nigeria by the British was to be experimented for 100 YEARS to know if it’s going to work or not, according to the secret government document the British left after independence.
    Although the document is kept secret, this fact is generally known to the ruling class, most dons of political science and law as well as the government of UK. However, there has been consistent efforts by Nigerian government to keep this knowledge out of public as it may lead to agitation for breaking the country into two i.e. pre-1914 status especially by those in the south.
    The awareness of this document and the closeness of 2014 has been causing panic among the Northern elites; this panic was behind the recent comment by the senate president that Nigeria will not break up.
    It was also behind the warning by NBA president when he said in Benin this week that Nigeria may break-up. Even pres. Jonathan is nervous about this fact; remember that he kept on saying that Nigeria will not break-up. Also, it was the real reason behind the northern governors recent security meeting in Kaduna, according to some sources.
    All these sudden talks about Nigeria breaking or not breaking up by the political leaders including the president show how anxious they are about the implications of the document and the closeness of almighty 2014. On the international scene, the knowledge of this document was behind the prediction by American diplomats that Nigeria will break-up in 2015. The US army is also preparing on how to respond to the possible break up of Nigeria.





    • @I will kills again whoever you called yourself and seems you are a lunatic by disturbition this forum with your so-call Expiration of 2014 amalgamation issue, beside Northerners have rule the country for for more than 30 yrs. They have enjoyed the national cake,likewise Yorubas and south-south part of the country try their best in presidency they have also enjoyed the national cake like northerners. The only people that left behind are your Ibos that will be at lost if nig amalgamation will expire by 2014. You see how foolish you are.

  20. Nigerians seem to have become a band of careless talkers. I have read all the comments here and almost all of it are careless talk. We complain about our politicians but we also seem to be confused. We don’t even know what we are doing. Imagine somebody saying that Nigeria’s unity expires in 2014. I don’t really know where he got his information. I don’t know if any does know. I will like to know the source.

  21. truth is bitter on

    some time some people want cheap popularity in the respect of AZUKA okwuosa am writing this ,he is a saying lie .how old was AZUKA in the year 1982,what is his status in nnewi and who is AZUKA’S father before he claimed what he dont know . AZUKA was nobody in nnewi before he became a local govt chairman ,he is a cheap thief and a politician that he cannot win his any election if conducted by his family,but now he has to support onyemelekwe in another man family business ,we re all from ANAEDO and we know who is who.fir the will i will not write ant thing about it because the property involve none was bought by

  22. Nnewi is full of “Wise Solomons”. Even in the presence or absence of Ikemba, there must be a way to establish justice for all in that family. As long as that young man continues to be excluded from Ikemba´s will, he feels deprived and is poised to fight for his right, the way his late father would definitively have done, with whatever means.
    There is a solution to every problem, if the will is there.
    Nnewi must wake up and carry the glory as well as the liability of being the birth place of Ikemba. They must establish justice in that family, in order to avoid turning Ojukwu´s family to a perpetual battle ground. Even at death our respected worrior is still being eluded by peace.

    • My brother you have spoken very well, I think that the will should be set aside because it lacks love and forgiveness we profess as christians and other ungodly things like a daughter outside marriage, I think that they should be shameful and go inside their house and settle their problems.

  23. Ozobugha B.Udoka on

    Olaseni Sobande or what do you call you stupid self, may dog make love to your epileptic mother, may pig suck from your mothers breast for abusing the Igbo race. Who do you think you are?.the Yoruba race cannot compete with the Igbo race in any ramification we are people who came out of the war with nothing and within a short span of years we have built empires every where we are found which is intimidating to other tribes, so how dare you insult the Igbo race.May you never live to see your children for abusing the Igbo race.

  24. @Olaseni Sobande: hopefully you are speaking from London, where you have No walking permit. Let me ask you, what do you know about Yoruba tradition or calture? Especially you and this slave who’s claimed to be called Chidi, it’s been said that, in the abundant of water the fool is testy, GO TO HELL NIGERIA

  25. What has Emeka jr put up for his own kids, from the sokoto street houses rent money? He better do something now. And stop crying over ezeigbo property b4 is too late.

  26. Solani you must be the most foolish person I ever seen by mixing up family issue and industrious Igbo tribe as a whole especially that evil comment of yours. For the man who spoke you’ve spoke excellently.

  27. Login to google search engine and search for’why are jews so hated’and u will c similarities between igbo and jews.they’re so hated cos they’re unique and they boast bout it,they’re aggressive;they succeed where others fail.they’re more brilliant than any of their immidiate neighbours,they’ubber daring and they are bullish, in contrast their neighbours always believe them inferieur.they are unforgiving when unjustly attacked,they revenge anytime they had chance.they wont stop at anything while pursuing success.their success attracts jealousy and attack on them.they’re rebellious,decentralised and egoist and that’s their bane till the state of isreal was created bring much needed jewish unity.economically they thrive in even hostile condition.they’re called warmongerers.
    The list is unending,but the jewish people use opportunity of freedom in USA to use their unique human resources in diaspora to acheive a more than 4000 years old dream,a united strong state of the world is at their mercy,google,facebook,US govt,france,germany,rushia,hollywood,us media and military etc are controlled by jews and that is u can search for ‘most influential jews’ and marvel at this unique tribe.hitlar saw it comming and attempted a suicide mission but stop at the feet of jewish controlled USA.
    Ndigbo have many to learn here,dont stop no matter how long or dangerous the struggle journey may be.our language is a unifying factor that must be preserved at all cost.teach igbos outside our shores to instill in their children a strong igbo identity and pride cos it’s a great atout.i.e american jewish contribution in isreali modern technologies.if those igbo children born to igbo men by foreigne women does not have a strong igbo feeling they won’t answer to appelles in future.yes,u can’t access modern technologies easily but those children in future will get it to us if they’re feeling igboish.igbo influential leaders must alway approach jewish state of israel cos we have alot in common.

  28. Pls can we all stop insulting ourselves. Igbo’s are a wonderful tribe, Yoruba’s are also wonderful people. These forums are not meant for this level of gutter talks. Pls we should make our points and stop insulting ourselves, our race. Being matured and intelligent is learnt and no one is born with it. Our great Ikemba will always be dear to us even in death. For the yoruba’s Awolowo is also dear to them. As Igbo’s concern should be how to lift the economic and financial status of southeast. Thank you my brothers for expending your energy in defending Igbo nation. Please let’s sheath our sword. The yoruba’s inthe forum should pls concentrate on the issue at hand. Thank you all.

    • @Chris-Thanks for trying to be a peace-maker but take my words,it’s not as simple as that,the Yoruba’s will pay big time at the appropriate time,back stabbers,double agents and saboteurs always pay big time.We would have being out of these amalgamation mess of a country called Nigeria but for this back stabbers.

  29. I think dis controvasil is 2 much. i think bianca should summon his family and resolve this issue. This is a family matter and should not be exposing lik this. As for those who call there self yoruba. u should close ur dirty mouth u dont hav 2 talk when igbos are talkin because u ppl are archeless all u know is 2 play draft and chewin stick every moning lazy ppl.

  30. A man struggling for the dead mans property lacks wisdom. If he who acquired the property can die and leave all who would not? Its all vanity!!


  32. Hello every one my comment is if actually what we say here matters, the will, will be a disaster in the family if allowed to be, please Igbo brothers should rally round Ikemba family to ensure equity, even the lawer who read the will cannot accept such scenario, the Igbos says, ndimou kecha ekpe ndi dundu ekaghairiaya. Thanks.

  33. THANK YOU AZUKA FOR STANDING BY THE TRUTH DESPITE THE POTENTIAL AND ACTUAL DANGERS OF DOING SO. Christ has said it all; “You shall know the truth and only the truth will set you free.” Thank you once more for being an agent of the truth. Remain blessed.

  34. Wonderful speech from a great orator Azuka Okwuosa. A great confidant indeed. ‘onye ka a ga-aju?. Like the same thruth u told us a d caretaker chairman Nnewi North. I dont know dat u still talk in d open.

  35. Ejimkonye okechukwu on

    Sir,thank u for this write up,it is an eye opener.also for hausas and yorubas that were insulting igbos becos one family matter,God will close their mouth forever when the time comes

  36. Gani Fawehinmi SAN, Chief Fatai Atanda Williams SAN and Abiola’s Wills are been contested, if the Wills of the above especially the two eminent jurists who are experts in law are contestested,one should not make mountain out this. Like the elder states man had said, this is grievance from some persons whose expectations were not met, they have right if they proof of any irregularity in the Will but such right cannot enforced on the pages of news papers. Dialogue or where that fails the court should be the appropriate media for the resolution of this impass.

  38. Which Way Nigeria on

    Tribalism is also one of the biggest frustration that Nigerians are facing. People forsakes what they ought to comment and abuse themselves. Very low mentality.

  39. The name OJUKWU is not ordinary name and any issue involving that name will make a front page news.Controversies are very common with top society individuals.

  40. Nduka Felix mobolaji uzuh on

    Wetin concern me for ojukwus properties.? All will love to say to his families, is that in what ever they do. They must not tternish the good image of our good and amiable leader, (general chukwu emeka odimagwu ojukwu) they should remember that he fought for the preservation and unity of ndi-igbo. And for our yoruba brothers who are always showing some form of envy against igbos. For investing in yoruba land in detriment of their own region. If yorubas joined hausas in killing biafrans, for the purpose of preserving nigerias unity. Why then should they now be complaining today. Because if they (ndi-yoruba) had not pulled ndi-igbo, back into nigeria, we couldn’t have had ndi-igbo residing in various parts of the federation today. Igbos have shown the spirit of oneness and togetherness more than any other tribe in this country. And they should have been commended for this unpopular action, instead of being envied. Our yoruba brothers can also go and reside in the east, nobody is stomping them.
