legal bottlenecks that have kept our father and paramount head of the Oruwari Briggs War Canoe Houses, late High Chief O.B Lulu-Briggs unburied.

Yesterday, I had the honor of meeting my people; chiefs and elders of the Oruwari Briggs group of houses. And I briefed the family and the press about the state of things and the nature of the legal bottlenecks that have kept our father and paramount head of the Oruwari Briggs War Canoe Houses, late High Chief O.B Lulu-Briggs unburied.

We wanted the press to cover the meeting so that it will be known that we have followed the recent directives by the Inspector General of Police. We have taken no action after a discussion we had with the IG but the recent action of our stepmother is a direct contravention of the express instruction of the Inspector General of Police. We therefore intend to make a formal complain to the IG.

The state of affairs today is that the family still do not have the mortal remains of our dearly beloved father despite the recent intervention by the IG. We cannot bury simply because we do not have the mortal remains, and instead of following through with the instruction to withdraw all legal actions, more are still being filed by our stepmother. I have no action in Ghana on any matter apart from responses to actions instituted by her.

The entire family is clearly pained by this ugly situation of unnecessary delays. We are however unanimously committed to taking the right steps and making the right decisions until we find closure. I urge everyone; my family members, Kalabari people and all loved ones within and outside Rivers State to remain calm while we continue to follow all lawful lead and hope that it ends in praise.

I heartily felicitate with High Chief, Navy Captain (Rtd) A.B. Ajumogobia, who, in that meeting, was officially declared as the Acting Head of the Oruwari Briggs House, by the Oruwari Briggs Chiefs.

To God be the glory!
