It is unhappy that at a momentous period as this in world historical past when all the globe is endangered by the raging COVID-19 pandemic, Dumo Lulu-Briggs, the embattled Chairman of Platform Petroleum Limited is fixated on issuing deceptive Press Statements in opposition to his widowed Stepmother simply to serve his perverted function of undermining the Last Will and Testament of a father whose identify he enjoys however whose legacy he’s bent on destroying.
As inconveniencing as it’s, and on the danger of becoming a member of Dumo down this route, it is very important expose the litany of falsehood contained in his latest assertion dated 25th March, 2020.
It is vital to say that Dumo was peddling falsehood when he stated:
1.“Dr. Mrs Seinye O. B. Lulu-Briggs instituted a plethora of lawsuits to stop her husband’s burial.” The reality is that it was Dumo who first went to court docket each in Nigeria and in Ghana instituting a complete of 15 lawsuits ranging from April 2019 in Omoku, a number of in Port Harcourt, a number of in Accra and most lately in Abuja in opposition to his stepmother. All she has performed to this point is to defend herself in opposition to Dumo’s lawsuits.
2.That “Pastor David Ibiyeomie is biased because he attended the same secondary school with Dumo.” Dr. Mrs. Seinye O. B. Lulu-Briggs has by no means stated Pastor David Ibiyeomie is biased. She acknowledges looking for his intervention in actualizing the burial of her husband following Dumo’s extended shiftiness. She maintains that it was proper earlier than Pastor David Ibiyeomie that Dumo threatened to accuse her of killing her husband if she didn’t give him what he thought-about as his father’s legacy property. A menace he carried out inside just some days of the assembly. She has by no means stated something about secondary faculty as a result of she has no concept what secondary faculty Pastor Ibiyeomie attended.
3.That “Seinye Lulu-Briggs challenged the position of the Amayanabo of Kalabari because he did not support her.” This is pure fallacy. Dr. Mrs. Seinye O. B. Lulu-Briggs has made no touch upon the stated letter by the Amayanabo. If something, it was Dumo who compromised the intervention of the Amayanabo of Kalabari by strolling out on the Committee convened by the Amayanabo, which was to see to the burial of the late High Chief. Dumo repeated the identical technique in opposition to the Committee convened by the Amayanabo of Abonnema on the intervention of His Excellency, the Rivers State Governor by making certain his representatives by no means appeared earlier than it after greater than 4 consecutive invites to them. Both Committees can readily affirm this reality.
4.That “Governor Wike said she insulted him…” This declare, as misunderstood because it was, was nonetheless apologized for. Her response on the identical day the assertion was made was that she was greatly surprised by it as a result of the final assembly with the Governor in the midst of his gracious intervention ended with out rancour and with a decision that every social gathering ought to ship settlement proposals to the Governor via the Attorney General of Rivers State. Dumo’s Settlement Proposal acquired by the Widow via the Rivers State Attorney General on the instruction of His Excellency, the Governor was a direct try and nullify his father’s Last Will and Testament.
5.The remainder of the piece is dotted with mere inconsequential fallacies and are at greatest diversionary. We would somewhat keep centered on what issues.
Dumo’s inciting, deceptive, manifestly false and diversionary reply didn’t tackle any of the problems raised by the Widow’s question of Dumo’s marketed Coroner’s Ruling. The points she raised had been that:
i. The Registry of the court docket stated no inquest was carried out. Yet the court docket gave a ruling on an inquest that was by no means carried out.
ii. The sole reliance of the singular assertion by Ilaye Philemon, whose twisted assertion was the one foundation for the ruling with out the cross-examination of any professional witness or the consideration of statements by the First Responders, the Kotoka Airport Clinic Paramedics who acquired the High Chief and attended to him whereas alive in Accra Ghana.
iii. The assertion of the Doctor on the Airport Clinic who recorded his time of dying in Ghana, that of the Pathologists who carried out his post-mortem and declared that he died of pure causes or these of the opposite passengers together with the Pilot and Crew of the VistaJet flight who confirmed that the High Chief arrived Ghana alive had been additionally not thought-about.
iv. Statements by the High Chief’s son Datein Lulu-Briggs and his pastor, Apostle Zilly Aggrey, who had been additionally on board that flight, weren’t thought-about.
v. Ilaye Philemon was Dumo’s worker and Chief Bouncer at his defunct Illusions Night Club. It is instructive to notice that Dumo didn’t deny that.
We would assume that Dumo’s important focus can be to plan and bury his father particularly after he has illegally obtained his physique and has held it at an unknown location for over Four weeks, away from the remainder of the High Chief’s household.
Finally, might his feverish plot to take over his father’s property, as he had tried to and failed in the course of the good outdated man’s lifetime, not increase the alarm for a radical probe of his non-public assembly along with his father a day earlier than he died, on condition that he Dumo has constantly hammered on the necessity for additional toxicology to seek out traces of poisons in his father’s physique even after the post-mortem that he instigated was conclusive on his reason for dying? Did he put something there that he’s in search of? Why is he adamant on setting apart his father’s Will?
