Oct 24, 2013  – Ojukwu’s Family Wants Bianca To Show Proof She Was Legally Married To Him

Some family members of the late Biafran leaders and Ikemba Nnewi, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, has challenged the Nigerian Ambassador to Spain, Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu to show proof that she was legally married to the deceased.

This was the fresh twist introduced into current legal battle rocking the family of the late Ikemba of Nnewi over sharing of his estate.

In a 19-paragraph statement of defence brought by the eight defendants, through their counsel, George Uwechue, they denied that Bianca, who instituted the action on behaif of her two children, ever married to the late Biafran leader.

Listed as defendants in the suit instituted by Afamefuna and Nwachukwu, through their mother, are Ojukwu Transport Limited, Prof. Joseph Ojukwu, Mr. Emmanuel Ojukwu, Lotanna Putalora Ojukwu and Dr. Patrick  Ojukwu. Others include  Mr. Edward Ojukwu, Lota Akajiora Ojukwu and Mrs. Massey Udegbe (doing business under Massey Udegbe and Company).

The claimants, in suit No. LD/1539/2012, prayed the court to declare that they were entitled to the possession and occupation of the property known as No 29 Oyinkan Abayomi Street in Ikoyi, Lagos until the harmonisation of the management and administration of the assets of the first defendant (OTL).

At the resumed hearing of the matter yesterday, the absence of counsel to Bianca and her children forced the court to adjourn the suit till December 10 for adoption of written addresses.

Afamefuna and Nwachukwu had, through their lawyer, Chris Ezugwu, prayed the court to declare as illegal the threat of forceful ejection from 29, Oyinkan Abayomi Street by the defendants. They also urged the court to declare that they were entitled to possess the following property: No. 13, Hawksworth Road, Ikoyi (now known as No. 13, Ojora Road); No. 32A, Commercial Avenue, Yaba, Lagos; No. 30, Gerard Road, Ikoyi, Lagos; No. 30, McPherson Avenue, Ikoyi.

Bianca’s children stated that throughout the period their father was struggling to retrieve the property from the government, the second to seventh defendants “never played any role in the struggle nor contributed financially or otherwise to the realisation of the struggle.”

Besides, the claimant is asking for an order of court restraining the defendants, their agents or privies from interfering with the claimants’ possession and control of the properties.

In their statement of defence, the 1st to 7th defendants, through their lawyer, George Uwechue, averred that the subscribers of the memorandum of association of Ojukwu Transport Limited (1st defendant) at incorporation in 1952 were L. P. Ojukwu and Betram Chukwuemeka Obi, adding that the late Ojukwu and one Prof. Joseph Ojukwu (2nd defendant) were later appointed as directors in 1953.

They stated that Ojukwu thereafter ceased to be a director of the company, prior to the Nigerian civil war and was reappointed as a director on December 16, 2005, while the 3rd and 4th defendants were appointed directors in 1954 and 2005 respectively.

They added that the claimants’ statement of claim contained tissues of lies and distorted facts.

Besides, they stated that Ojukwu moved to Enugu State and had not lived at any of the company’s property as alleged by the claimant.

They averred: “The property belongs to the first defendant (the company). The fact is that the claimants’ mother felt she could hold onto the first defendant’s properties. For over 12 years prior to his death, the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu moved to Enugu and since then had not lived at the first defendant’s property as alleged by the claimants.”

They challenged Bianca’s children to show proof of any such agreement, which their late father had, from the first defendant, for him to control and/or manage the properties of the first defendant.

  1.

  2. what kind of proof they need? who is the mother of those kids in the pics? the igbos are not white men that show marriage proof in certificates. Bianca do not mind all those money mongers.

  3. The question is, y ddnt they ask their father to show dem a proov dat he is legally married to dis woman b4 he passed on? Does it mean dat d man dd not write his will?. Wel if the woman is knowledgeble enough, she should accept whichever property dey wish to give her an her children an move ahead. Cos wen pple plan to reap were dey dd not sow. Dey can also b daibolical…………. ” farmily members self ” meanwhile while d man was sufferin to achive somtin in life. Most of dis pple makin demand now were busy foolin around. Waitin fo d man to die . God wil help us wit lazy farmily members ooooooooooooo.

  4. It is so de-humanising and deplorable what a single or newly widowed woman experiences….. The name callings, insults and irritating un-wanted advances from people(MEN)…. people who dare not even cross the part that you walked on, will begin to open their dirty mouth and talk blasphemy…. a single women is suddenly being ridiculed even by her own fellow women, who ought to know better , who might even find them selves in the same situation the very next second……. E.G… femi fanii kayode and then of cause ojukwu family themselves, who knew their father was married to this lady for so many years and with children….. This then puts into question didn’t the Ikemba himself put things together for bianca and children before he passed on, knowing his igbo custom never favours women… People say she married him for his money, has anyone thought about him marrying her for her youth and beauty and who doesn’t these days, especially for the modern young girls in the world today…E.G NIGERIA. the ikemba satisfied his urge with a fresh young pretty lady, lets not forget that bianca was from avery wealthy home, a daughter of C.C ONOH… so people who weren’t inside the ojukw’s marriage, shouldn’t speak!…. Thank GOD, her children are all grown up now and she has a good working portfolio as an ambassador to spain and actually do a very good job with her office over there….Bianca, please don’t fight anyone, property and wealth is nothing in this world, we are all traders and time borrowers in this world, we all brought nothing in except for our bodies at the time of birth, and when we pass on, we take nothing at all not even the body we came with , it is buried 7ft under, termites comes in to eat it, the rest turns to manure… so all the wealth is left behinde… It is the people who didn’t work for it that takes it all, and they use and sell it without respect or value…..The best thing to do at this time is to hold on and pray to GOD FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS AND GUIDIANCE…. And for people leaving inconsiderate comments please use wisdom and consideration for otheres , especially those not going through an unpleasant experince at this time in their lives…. thank you

  5. Hahahahaha,which proof do they want again.Couple that did their traditional wedding,white wedding and bride price was paid.Which proof again do they want.Ojukwu family,funny set of people.They can contest the will not asking proof of marriage

  6. Ojukwu family have every right to ask bianca to proof if she legitimate married ojukwu.she must proof herself under wise she loose her right.

  7. Edunut or what ever you call your self, you should keep you mouth closed if you do not know what to say.
    what about the children, foolish man.

  8. If the story is true, then the grabbing culture of another bereaved set(close and distant) has resurfaced. Pity!!! Where were the family members when Bianca took the name, enjoyed all the flagging by the Ikemba, and gave him kids. Let these people go and hide their faces in shame and leave the woman alone. If the Ikemba had departed without living behind a dime, he could’ve long been forgotten and one of these same people might have as well been planning to sell the piece of land where he was laid to rest. Tufiakwa!!!

  9. Even the Devil knew that Ojukwu married Bianca. On many occassion was she seen with the late Sage Ojukwu in public places. This is a power play when inheritance is being contested. Bianca was never a pauper when she agreed to marry Ojukwu. Apart from being a former beauty queen, she was the daughter of a former Governor, C C Onoh, in the old Anambra State. Ojukwu benefitted more in Bianca than she to Ojukwu.

  10. Really,for those fighting this woman don’t forget that the tears of widow is a loaded gun and never goes unanswer.where were you guys when lkemba was alife to ask him that.I thought that fighting widows over their husband property only exist in movie.you better not start what you can’t finish with your head still attach to you.

  11. It’s unfortunate what a young Igbo widow goes through in the hands of her late husband’s so-called family members. The demand of these men is so ridiculous and embarrassing. I think they are making a jest of themselves cos there’re overwhelming evidences of Bianca’s marriage to Ikemba. Even more embarrassing is the fact that a woman is among those persecuting her. And for those narrow-minded fellows who insinuate that Bianca married Ojukwu bcos of money, u’v only gone further to expose ur ignorance about the family background of the queen of queens, intelligent and equally from a wealthy home, whose father, the late Chief C.C. Onoh was a former governor of old Anambra state. May God see her through? Amen!

  12. Thunder fire dat bastard who said right from the beginning Bianca married ojukwu for his money. Ojukwu get money? He is just an average man. When you hear the inheritance you sef go know say him just dey struggle, so shut ur big mouth up. Ojukwus family pple or his older kids are just being greedy. Maybe dem wan inherit Bianca as their wife but she no even gree dats y dem vex. Bianca is doing well she has her own little cash former governors daughter for that matter. My friend if you don’t know wat to say Go kick Stone.
