After his death, the children from his first wife took an injunction from a court in Ohafia local government in Abia state to order his burial after a petition was filed by the late business mogul’s daughters from his second wife saying they were not carried along in the burial plans and the sharing of his estate and therefor the burial should be stopped. The court session held on July 11th 2013 in Ohafia. The judge in the case said the burial should go on as planned on July 12th in Abiriba, Abia, saying it is unheard of in Igboland that a dead man’s property would be shared while his body was still in the mortuary and instructed that the late business mogul be buried immediately.
