CAN DUMO PLEASE DENY THESE FACTS?
It is interesting to see how the unwholesome and needless diatribe by acolytes of Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs, especially one Ijuye Dagogo presumably on Dumo’s instruction, struggle to defend his refusal to lay his father, High Chief O. B. Lulu-Briggs, to rest and rather choosing to pass the buck to his stepmother, Dr. (Mrs.) Seinye O. B. Lulu-Briggs .
His feigned public pretext of ignorance of the circumstances surrounding his father’s demise is defeated and overshadowed by his private negotiation of preconditions for burying his father. It is something his acolytes will readily deny on his behalf. However documentary and electronic evidence would speak for themselves at the appropriate time.
The claim that Dumo is interested in the burial of his father or desires to unearth the phantom mysterious circumstances under which his ailing father passed, a man who endured Parkinson’s for 2 decades, is utter balderdash. If those were the issues, he would have made them known before fixing the first date of his father’s interment.
The reason he gave for cancelling that burial was that he was vying for the plump job of Governor of Rivers State in the 2019 General Elections. Having bitterly lost that contest as has always been the case for all succeeding electoral seasons since 2003, the recourse to a suspicion of the conspiratory murder of his father, High Chief (Dr.) O. B. Lulu-Briggs by his stepmother, the only person under whose care he had been nursed for years without fail until his quiet passing, appears to be the fall-back scheme.
Can Dumo please deny that he did not send any terms of settlements to his stepmother as preconditions for his father’s interment?
Can Dumo please deny that he did not purchase a casket with which to convey his father’s remains for burial? How does one who claims to have no access to the earthly remains of his father purchase and deposit a casket for the conveyance of his remains for burial?
Can Dumo please deny that he was not informed directly by his stepmother the very day his father passed on and that he did not arrive Accra, Ghana, the very next day 28th of December 2018?
Can Dumo please deny that he was not the very person who informed respected Nigerian leaders of the passing of his father after conferring with his stepmother and accessing his father’s remains?
Can Dumo please deny that he didn’t have access to his father’s remains and didn’t fix a burial date that he subsequently postponed?
Can Dumo please deny that he did not demand from his stepmother 50% of her value in Monipulo Limited and also rejected her acceptance based on her insistence that it must be for both him and his siblings being all his father’s children?
Can Dumo please deny that he never claimed to demand for her matrimonial residence until the interjection of respected mediators?
Can Dumo please deny, as his spokesman Ijuye Dagogo also mentioned, that his involvement of Pastor David Ibiyeomie, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Governor Nyesom Wike and some other elders in negotiating with his stepmother was to set aside his father’s will to which all but one washed their hands off?
Can Dumo who now wants to ascertain the circumstances of his father’s death, deny that not a word was uttered by him when his father was attacked at Abonnema shortly before his demise? Did Dumo as much as issue a statement or cause a police report to be entered on his behalf on the issue? Can he deny that he knew his father was shot at and made no comment about it?
Can Dumo please be prevailed upon to deny these well documented matters?
Does Dumo really want a response from his stepmother? Can he live with the consequence of the public spectacle of the scandalous details? Does he appreciate the ramifications it can have on him and those associated with him? Should Ijuye Dagogo not properly confer with his Principal before putting his pen to paper again, given that the next responses from us would be scathingly detailed, evidentially robust and logically coherent with our position from the very beginning. Is it not now truly in their very hands to remedy issues or effectively and perpetually mar themselves?
It must be reiterated that Dr. (Mrs.) Seinye Lulu-Briggs remains ready to ensure her beloved husband is interred at any date of her Chief Accuser’s choosing. But she would not consent to the abrogation of his will to achieve that purpose no matter how damning a war is waged against her or vexatiously thick the conspiracy against her becomes. The last wishes and Will of her husband will be respected.
