Olorogun Felix Ibru’s Children Fight Dirty

Published

on

The late Olorogun Felix Ibru, the first democratically elected Governor of Delta State, had worked hard to give his family a lasting wealth and legacy.

But the wealth bequeathed to the children, www.crystal.com.ng gathered, is said to be tearing them apart.

How? The children of the deceased, Oyovwevotu Felix Ibru and Amrotorigbeya Elaine Ibru, are said to have instituted a court case against other siblings over the running of their father’s company,  Ibru Prefabs Limited, before the Federal High Court, Ikoyi Lagos.

The petitioners, it was gathered, are alleging that one of their siblings, Dr. Aidido Paul Ibru , is running the estate of their late father in a manner which is unfairly prejudicial and discriminatory to their interest.

According to a source, “Dr. Aidido Paul Ibru, on his own, assumed the administration, control and management of the Estate left by their late their deceased father without obtaining the consent or authority of the Court, and the other siblings.

“Consequently, on May 10, 2017, a matter with  Suit No. LD/25P/2017 between the petitioners,  Mrs. Onojoma Yvette Oniwinde, Dr. Aidido Paul Ibru, Ms. Sheri Sonia Ibru, Mr. Olotu Ibru and  the Probate Registrar of High Court of Lagos State, at the Lagos State High Court, claiming that the court  should order  that Dr. Aidido  as executor of the Estate of the late Olorugun Felix Ibru is obliged to file account supported by relevant receipts and vouchers showing his dealings with the Estate since the death of the late Ologun Ibru on the 12th day of March, 2016 up till this moment and such account to be lodged with the Probate Registrar of the court for scrutiny within three  months from the date of judgement.

  “ They are also seeking an order disgorging/restituting all profits or gains accrued over the assets of Estate of the late senator; an order of perpetual injunction restraining Dr. Aidido  either by himself, privies, agents or representatives howsoever described from interfering or intermeddling with any asset, including real properties  in the Estate of the late Olorugun Felix Ibru; an order of perpetual injunction restraining  him  whether acting by himself, agents or privies, whomsoever, howsoever, from taking possession or in any way disturbing the peaceful enjoyment by Mr. Matilda Ibru of the premises known as 35, Remi Fani-kayode Street, Ikeja GRA, Lagos; an order that account be taken of all assets in the Estate of the deceased and an interest on the sum awarded  at 21% per annum until final liquidation of the judgement sum.”

 He also  alleged further that, following the death of  their  father, who was the only shareholder of the Company, Dr. Aidido, who has no shares and is not a director of the Company, has purported and continued to purport to exercise control over the affairs of the Company without regard to the  their interest, and those of the other heirs to the estate of the late politician.

 The source added that Dr. Aidido was also accused of operating the various accounts of the Company in spite of several oral and written warnings to him that he should stop doing so until Letters of Administration are obtained in respect of the estate.

It was further alleged that he has been applying the funds of the Company in respect of his personal needs.

However, another source disclosed that though Dr. Aidido had not filed any response to the suit filed before the Federal High Court, he stated , in a counter-affidavit to a suit before the Lagos High Court, that as the first son of his father, he would not destroy the laudable legacy built and left by his father.

The source said the friction started almost immediately their father passed on and they had to determine his final resting place. 

 ‘’ They decided not to attend the funeral and burial of their father on his property at Agharha -Otor. The action is seen as abominations and taboo and flagrant disobedience to the custom, tradition and culture of the Urhobo people, of which their father was a proud one.

“So they  cannot be beneficiaries of the estate of the late father  given their wilful refusal to bury him and pay him last respect.

 “They were not side-lined but rather have been informed that before any discussion about late Olorogun Felix Ibru estate can take place, the matter about reproaching their father  by refusing to bury him must be resolved.”

He said Aidido’s running the affairs of his late father’s company had involved other siblings, who either involved in the burial of their father or had since come around to accepting that their refusal to bury him was abominable /reproachable act against Olorogun Felix Ibru .

“He has been focused on ensuring that any debt owed by the estate is paid, that burial plans are executed proficiently, the mausoleum site developed, applying for letter of administration and estate road map actualised” he added.

Resident doctors threaten to embark on indefinite strike on Thursday, April 1

Published

on

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.”
