Sharing entitlements splits Ojukwu family


Late Ojukwu

Aggrieved family members of the late billionaire, Sir Louis Ojukwu have filed a suit before Justice Dennis Mmaduechesi of the Awka High Court in Anambra State over the sharing of the late businessman’s properties.

The plaintiffs are Aloysious Ikemefuna Ojukwu and Jude Chukwuma Ojukwu.

Joined as defendants in the suit are Dr. Ike Ojukwu, Lotenna Ojukwu and Dr. Joseph Ojukwu.


The defendants had urged the court to dismiss the suit, arguing that the plaintiffs are not the sons of Ojukwu.

The complainants were alleging that they have been cheated in their entitlements and thus, bitter over the sharing of the properties of the late businessman who died in 1966.

They are therefore seeking an order of the court compelling the defendants to account for the management of the late Sir Louis Ojukwu’s property over the years.

In addition, they prayed the court to order the release of their father’s will.

The plaintiffs claimed that they are entitled to 25 per cent of the share in the compound of their late father at No. 73, Owerri Road, Umudim, Nnewi and a 25 per cent share of their father’s company, Ojukwu Transport Company.

The case has been adjourned to March 12, 2018 for pre-trial conference.
