… “MY HUSBAND DIED OF NATURAL CAUSE”
In our effort of accurate balancing of news reports without taking sides we bring to you the reaction of the surviving wife of late Billionaire Oil mogul O. B Lulu-Briggs as she is currently in a high spirit to bring to an end the lingering issues concerning the allegations that her late billionaire husband did not die as a result of natural cause but the autopsy has vindicated her and she is elated right now. Below is her statement:
“Today, Tuesday February 11, 2020 in Accra, Ghana the report of the autopsy which was carried out on my beloved husband High Chief (Dr.) O. B. Lulu-Briggs’ body at 37 Military Hospital in Accra, Ghana on July 19, 2019 was made public.
As expected the autopsy report concluded that he died from natural causes.
There was no foulplay. Indeed, this confirms the preliminary findings which I made a statement about at the time.
I give glory, thanks, honor and praise to God Almighty, in whom my family and I trust fully, that my innocence has been confirmed.
My husband was such a wonderful God-fearing and loving man. He was by God’s grace an accomplished and distinguished elder statesman, business mogul and philanthropist. I loved, adored and cared for him all the years we lived together as one. And I miss him dearly. We all do.
It is public knowledge that soon after he passed into glory, our family came under a vitriolic attack by our three older sons, Senibo, Dumo and Sofiri. It is my fervent prayer that the resulting false, shameful, satanic lies and rumors regarding the manner of our patriarch’s passing, including the preposterous allegation that I killed him, can now be laid to rest once and for all.
I want to thank all those family, friends and well-wishers who stood by us through what has been a most harrowing and painful experience. Now more than ever before, I understand the trauma that widows experience in our communities when they lose their husbands and are extremely vulnerable. As a Christian, I have forgiven all those who have maligned me and my family.
Since my husband peacefully transited to glory my top priority has been to ensure that he is accorded the dignified Christian burial he wanted. There is no justifiable reason why we should not have granted his wish by now.
He was a good man; he lived a long illustrious life in love and service to humanity.
I call on all members of our family, our Abonnema community, the Kalabari Kingdom and our friends to come together and let us bury my husband, our legendary leader, father and friend, High Chief (Dr.) O. B. Lulu-Briggs. It’s the very least that we can do to honor and pay due respects to his memory as we thank God for the privilege of having known him.”
For now the home of the O. B Lulu-Briggs in Abonnema is to be set agog with preparations concerning his proper burial according to Christian rites which he penciled down in his WILL.
