Seinye Lulu-Briggs, the wife of the late billionaire, O.B. Lulu-Briggs, has slammed her step-son, Dumo for presenting father in a font that depicts blood, witchcraft and savagery.
Seinye in a statement on Monday distanced the family from such “unwholesome, macabre and juvenile misrepresentation of the respectable person of High Chief Dr O. B. Lulu-Briggs”.
She added that the family views the Obsequies Announcement in bad taste as it is utterly disrespectful to the memory of their patriarch.
Read her statement in full;
The attention of the family of High Chief Dr. O. B. Lulu-Briggs, OON, DCF, DSSRS has been drawn to a publication on Page 46 of the Guardian of 8th March 2021, ostensibly made on their behalf by Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs announcing the obsequies of their patriarch, High Chief Dr. O. B. Lulu-Briggs with the most prominent font depicting blood, witchcraft and savagery.
The family distances itself from such unwholesome, macabre and juvenile misrepresentation of the respectable person of High Chief Dr. O. B. Lulu-Briggs.
The family views the grotesque publication as one in bad taste and utterly disrespectful to the memory and life of an honourable man like the late High Chief Dr. O. B. Lulu-Briggs, who was globally distinguished for his statesmanship, industry, generosity and evangelism through the O.B. Lulu-Briggs Campaign for Christ.
The family apologises to all friends and associates of High Chief Dr. O. B. Lulu-Briggs from across Nigeria and around the world who feel offended. Many have called in to express their disgust and justified contempt at the noxious publication. The family assures them that such an offensive publication could never have emanated from family members who cherish the legacies of their beloved patriarch and are committed to promoting same. It is the belief of the family that the publication is reflective of the thinking and character of the sponsor and nothing more.
The O. B. Lulu-Briggs family assures the general public that the priceless memory, life and legacies of their patriarch, High Chief Dr. O. B. Lulu-Briggs, will never be diminished by these momentary, vile and callous showmanship and should therefore discountenance the said publication.
