Lulu-Briggs Burial Saga: “I didn’t refuse to release his body” – Late Billionaire’s Wife, Seinye

The Family of late Billionaire businessman, Chief Lulu-Briggs is currently embroiled in a Saga over the burial of the late businessman. His first Son, Dumo Lulu-Briggs has repeatedly accused his father’s second wife, Seinye of refusing to release his body for Burial.

However, in a statement made available to Politics Nigeria, Signed by her media aide, Oraye Franklin, Mrs Lulu-Briggs narrates her side of the story adding that Dumo’s statements were ‘False’. Read the full statement below;

“The demand made by Dumo Lulu-Briggs, the second son of High Chief Dr. O. B. Lulu-briggs on his stepmother to release the body of his father for burial is misplaced. Dumo knows that rather than his stepmother, it is the Ghanaian Police and Mortuary that have custody of his father’s body.”

“He also knows, especially as a lawyer, that he is duty-bound to give the written unconditional undertakings as ordered by the court. That is the court-imposed precondition before the release of the body. His claim that he had instructed his lawyers to do so on his behalf is immaterial. To this day, both he and his lawyers have not fulfilled the court imposed preconditions for the release of his father’s body and are, therefore, deliberately snubbing and undermining the order of a court of competent jurisdiction.”

“As a matter of fact, the main issue has never been about the release of his father’s body for burial but about access to and control of his father’s assets. This is because while he publicly claims to be desirous of obtaining his father’s body, through emissaries he privately seeks to negotiate control of his father’s assets with his stepmother demanding that until all beneficiaries agree to set aside the Last Will and Testament of High Chief O. B. Lulu-Briggs there would be no burial.”

“The truth is that the body of High Chief O. B. Lulu-Briggs has always been ready for burial. Dumo knows this and he knows that blocking the release of the report of an autopsy he instigated, participated in, and which was duly conducted by a neutral body, the Ghanaian Military and monitored by both the Nigerian and Ghanaian Police, amounts to deliberately delaying the burial of his father.”

“This has always been his intention. He has no right to block the release of the autopsy report of one that was duly carried out and certified so by the Ghanaian military and police as well as his own representative pathologists. His appeal at the Supreme Court against the release of the autopsy report amounts to blocking it and it is for no other reason than the fact that it exonerates his stepmother whom he accuses of murdering his father. That allegation is contained in his several petitions in Nigeria and Ghana.”

“Evidently, the release of the body of High Chief O. B. Lulu-Briggs for burial personally lies in the hands of Dumo Lulu-Briggs. The claim that he does not have access to the body of his father is false. He had access to the body before the autopsy was done and visited the mortuary more than once to see the body. He also PERSONALLY signed the documents depositing the body of his father at the mortuary after the autopsy and has never been or ever will be stopped from accessing the body.”

“On the very day the judgment was given, Dumo and his co-travellers were at the mortuary in the guise of fulfilling the order of the court mandating him to have his stepmother represented and involved during both the burial preparations and actual burial of her husband. He did this to mislead the mortuary and undermine the judgement of the court. Strangely he also offered to indemnify the mortuary of any liabilities that may arise from his attempt at unlawfully obtaining the body of her husband.”

“Dr Mrs Seinye O. B. Lulu-Briggs maintains that Dumo must comply with the court-imposed preconditions and allow the autopsy report be released. She insists that if the burial of her husband is truly his son’s interest as he, Dumo, claims, then he should fulfil the court imposed pre-conditions on him and allow the release of the report of the autopsy that was duly conducted. Other false claims made during the live interview monitored on Rhythm 93.7 FM’s ViewPoint will be addressed in due course.”
