The embattled widow of the late Biafran warlord, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Bianca Ojukwu has asked a Lagos State High Court, sitting at Igbosere to reject an application filed by her husband’s second child, seeking to be joined as defendant in the suit she filed against the family over property.
Bianca, an ex-beauty queen and former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain, had on behalf of her two under-aged children, Afamefuna and Nwachukwu (claimants) dragged Ojukwu Transport Limited, OTL and seven others before the court over an alleged move by the Ojukwu family to eject her sons from the company’s properties situated in Lagos.
The company, OTL, and its property belong to the grandfather of the claimants, late Sir Louis Odumegwu Ojukwu.
Ojukwu’s second child, Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu Jr was not among the eight defendants dragged before the court by Bianca but in his application seeking to be joined as defendant in the suit, he prayed the court to join him on the grounds that he is a director of the first defendant company, OTL and by virtue of his position has responsibility to look after the interest of the other children of his late father.
He averred that the claimants in the suit are the last two of the eight children of his late father and they are represented by their mother who was the last of the six wives of his late father.
Emeka, urged the court to join him as defendant in the best interest of justice, stating that any decision in respect of the claims of Bianca’s two children in the suit so far as it relates to his father’s interest in OTL will affect him as the current head of the late Dim Chukwuemeka OJukwu’s family.
