The first son of Biafran Warlord, late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumekwu Ojukwu, is dead.
Chief Debe Sylvester Ojukwu died at a private hospital in Lagos state on Friday, November 2, 2018.
Chief Debe had been engaged in a face-off with his father’s last wife, Bianca Ojukwu, over properties left by the Ikemba Nnewi.
According to Punch Newspaper, Bianca Ojukwu has said it is not up to her to make announcements in the Ojukwu family as it was against the tradition of the people of Nnewi to do such.
“According to our tradition, it is not my role to make such announcements. We have elders in the family, who have such duties and functions. It’s not part of my duties”, she said.
Family source said that they are yet to issue a statement on the development.
