Ojukwu’s new daughter shocks Bianca
The late Ikemba of Nnewi, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, willed his estate and monies to his wife, Bianca, on the condition that she remains unmarried.
The presentation by the Chief Registrar of the Enugu High Court, Dennis Ekoh, was witnessed by Bianca; Val Nwosu, Ojukwu’s first cousin; and Mike Ejemba.
In the will, the late Mr. Ojukwu identified one Tenny Haman as one of his children.
He listed his eight children as Tenny Haman, Chukwuemeka Jnr, Mmegha, Okigbo, Ebele, Chineme, Afam and Nwachukwu.
The Ikemba 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.
He also said that Bianca should replace him as the trustee in the family company, Ojukwu Transport Ltd, while also giving her two plots of land in his village at Nnewi.
He, however, added that if she re-married, the land should be taken away from her.
The first son, Chukwuemeka Jnr., got the family house at Nnewi, while the newly mentioned daughter, Tenny Haman, got the Jubilee Hotel located in Zaria, Kaduna State.
The Biafran warlord also shared other landed property in the village among all his children.
Mr. Ojukwu listed the trustees and executors of the will to include Bianca, Emeka Jnr and James Chukwuneme.
Reacting to the will, Bianca, who is Nigeria’s Ambassador to Spain, expressed satisfaction with its contents.
“It was a fair will. This time round, he did not disappoint us,’’ she said.
The ambassador, however, expressed shock at the disclosure of a new daughter in the family, whom she said had never been mentioned by her husband.
None of the children was present at the presentation of the will.
