Emeka Ojukwu, first son of the late Biafra warlord, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu has revealed who killed his father.
In an interview with The Telegraph, Emeka alleged that Bianca Ojukwu, wife of the late warlord, locked him up and denied his family members access to him when he had stroke.
“Bianca has been saying and I do not want to associate myself with her. This is a woman who wants to create an impression that she loved Ezeigbo (Odumegwu Ojukwu), but while Ezeigbo was sick, she chose not to take care of him and rather pleased herself.
“When Ezeigbo had a stroke, he was being ‘treated’ at home. He was neither given a CAT scan, MRI nor subjected to any of the standard procedures applicable to a stroke victim. She insisted on having him treated in his bedroom by her doctor, against the wishes of the family, for two weeks! At some point, family members were stopped at the gate from inquiring about Ezeigbo’s condition.
“On several occasions, I had to force myself in to see him. So all this grandstanding that Bianca is putting up is just to create a false impression about her relationship with my father and unsuspecting members of the public are buying into it.”
“All the evidences are available and well documented. First of all, the air ambulance provided only had room for one family member and it was decided that she should go with him in the ambulance. You are right. Certain changes were made in terms of treatment centres. Lynden Hill Clinic was the third place he was moved to.
“We were dismayed by the decision, because you have to understand that throughout his treatment, he required 24-hour nursing care, and that particular centre was illequipped to handle a patient in his condition, even with 24 -hour nursing.
“That was why he was transferred, yet again, to the Royal Berkshire when his health, predictably, deteriorated. Several members of my father’s immediate and extended family, including myself, made a concerted effort to have him moved to a neurological rehabilitation centre, where he would receive the sort of treatment he needed.
“But again, Bianca blocked our efforts, and on the 25th of November 2011, a date I will never forget, without reference to the family, she had him discharged from the Royal Berkshire and transferred to yet another ill-equipped nursing home, this time in London, where he died a few hours later.”
