Family Fight Over Inheritance Gets Messy as Daughter Sues Step-Mother to Court (Photo)

    A daughter has sued her stepmother to court alleging that the stepmum is not legally married to her father and so does not have any right to inherit her late fathers estate.

    Mrs Nnenna Enweliku (The daughter) had written a petition against her mother to the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone Two, on January 27, 2014, alleging that her stepmother was not legally married to her father and that the marriage certificate she presented for the purpose of getting letter of administration for the estate of their late father, Lord Dike Udensi Ifegwu, was forged.

    The police investigated and found nothing tangible to the effect.

    Dissatisfied with the outcome of that investigation by Zone Two Police Command, she wrote a second petition to Deputy Inspector General of Police, Criminal Investigation Department, Abuja, detailing the manner and nature of the forgery.

    The mother (Lady Joyce Udensi-Ifegwu, Former chairman of defunct Citizens International Bank Limited) filed a counter suit at the federal high court, Lagos, seeking to halt a possible second attempt at investigation and arraignment by the police on the same matter.
