The Olurogun Michael Ibru legacy

Brilliant. Successful. Generous. These three words can be used to describe the late Olorogun Michael Christopher Onajirhevbe Ibru, the Otota (Prime Minister) of Agbarha-Otor Kingdom.

The late Ibru, 86, died in the early hours of September 6, 2016 in Maryland, in the United States of America, barely five weeks after the demise of one of his younger brothers, Felix Ibru, the first civilian governor of Delta State.

But in death, the man fondly referred to as a ‘humble fisherman’ lives in the minds of not only his successful Ibru clan, but also in the minds of the people whose lives he touched through his philanthropy, model entrepreneurship and friendship.

In the video below, the exemplary life of the foremost son of Agbarha-Otor Kingdom is relived through the words of his family, former associates and employees.
