Court Grants Dumo Lulu Briggs’ Prayer over late father inquest
The war in the family of late Rivers state born billionaire businessman, High Chief Olu Benson Lulu Briggs, is far from being over as Kaneshie district court in Ghana has granted an application filed by Dumo Lulu Brigg for an inquest into the death of his father who was the founder and chairman of Moni Pulo Limited, an oil exploration and production company.
In a ruling dated September 6 and seen by TheCable, E.K Barnes-Botchway, a magistrate, ordered that an inquest be conducted on the deceased
It also ordered the Ghana police to make all processes and documents in its custody available.
“Upon reading the affidavit of Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs of Nigeria, the applicant herein filed on the 5th day of September , 2019 in support of motion ex-parte for an order of inquest,” the court held.
“And upon hearing Andrew Khartey led by Maame Tutua Temeng and holding the brief of Nana Agyei Baffour Awuah’s brief herein in person; It is hereby ordered that:
“An inquest should be conducted on the death of the deceased, Chief Olu Benson Lulu-Briggs because I ordered for an autopsy to be undertaken on the deceased following an application for post-mortem by the Ghana Police Service (C.I.D Headquarters).
“The report is yet to be submitted since July 2019. With this additional information to the one that forms the basis of the police application, I have reasonable cause to believe that the deceased did not die a natural death and I, therefore, deem an inquest necessary and accordingly order for one to be done.
“The Ghana Police Service (C.I.D) is ordered to make available to this court all processes and documents in their custody including the autopsy report.”
The death of Lulu-Briggs on December 27, 2018, in Accra had created controversy among his family members.
Seinye, his widow, who had travelled with him, was accused of having a hand in his death.
The Nigeria police, in partnership with the Ghana police, had launched an investigation into his death following a petition by Dumo, second eldest son of the deceased, to the inspector-general of police accusing Seinye, his stepmother, of killing his father.
He had requested an autopsy to determine the death of his father but findings had concluded that the deceased did not die a violent death as alleged.
Dumo, however, faulted the process in an interview with TheCable. He rejected the report, saying Seinye, the widow, still has a lot of questions to answer.
In her defence, the widow, in a statement sent to TheCable, had also denied any foul play .
Subsequently, lawyers to the three son of the late billionaire had written a protest to the director-general, criminal investigation department of the Ghana police service, demanding another autopsy in accordance with the order of the high court in Accra on July 18, 2019.
They had said the autopsy conducted was contrary to the court order which had mandated a military doctor to do the post mortem after an agreement reached by the family.

Resident doctors threaten to embark on indefinite strike on Thursday, April 1
There was palpable fear after Members of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) threatens to embark on an indefinite strike on Thursday, April 1.
The body disclosed (NARD) that the strike will be coming on the heels of the expiration of the 60-day ultimatum given to the Federal Government on January 25 for the payment of arrears of salaries of house officers across the country and the review of hazard allowance, among other demands. According to members of the association, since the pandemic began in 2020, it has lost 17 doctors, whose families and loved ones are yet to benefit from the Death in Service Insurance Scheme.
According to a statement released in Abuja by the President of NARD, Dr Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, after NARD’s extra-ordinary National Executive Council (NEC) meeting on Sunday, March 28, reads in part
“The NEC observed that her earlier ultimatum given to the Federal Government during the January 2021 NEC meeting in Owerri will expire by 12 midnight on the 31st of March 2021 with no significant achievement.
The NEC reiterated her full support for the Central Placement of House Officers. Nevertheless, they decried the agony our members have been made to pass through for three months now without salaries despite uninterrupted service delivery to the nation.
This is due to the inefficiency of the Registrar of MDCN in handling the processes of central placement of House Officers as approved by the Federal Executive Council since 2017.
The NEC bemoaned the suffering of some of our members in GIFMIS platform who have not been paid salaries for four months now due to delay in biometric capturing by IPPIS department.
They lamented the inhumane treatment being meted on our members in some State Tertiary Institutions like ABSUTH being owed twenty months salaries, IMSUTH five months salaries and UNIMEDTH three months salaries.
The NEC also observed that despite the three-month window given to the Federal Government to review the hazard allowance of health workers, the hazard allowance has remained a paltry sum of five thousand naira monthly.
The NEC noted that despite the efforts of NARD, the erroneously paid 2020 Medical Residency Training Fund (MRTF) to non-resident Doctors is yet to be addressed. Also, the 2019, some of 2020 and 2021 MRIF are yet to be paid.”
