Details have emerged about how Chief Debe Sylvester Odumegwu-Ojukwu, first son of the late Head of State of the defunct Republic of Biafra, Chief Emeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, died.
News Express was among the first to report the death of the 62 years old lawyer and retired police officer
Reporting on the circumstances surrounding his death, Daily Sun wrote this morning: “Debe Ojukwu, who was hale and hearty on Friday, suddenly had a rise in his sugar level after his DNA test result to determine if he actually was the son of Ojukwu came out and was positive.
“According to a family source, he was rushed to a hospital in a bid to check the sugar level rise, which refused to improve until he gave up the ghost in the morning of yesterday.”
However, another account by Vanguard quoted an unnamed member of the Ojukwu family as saying that Debe “slumped, and lost consciousness last Thursday.”
“The late Ojukwu,” according to the report, “did not regain consciousness until he was pronounced dead on Friday at a private hospital where he was taken to, in Lagos.
“A condolence register has been opened by the family at the Lekki Phase 1 home of the deceased who was the President-General of Umudim Nnewi Union in Lagos.”
