The death of Lulu-Briggs on December 27, 2018, in Accra, Ghana, had created controversy among his family members.

Seinye, his widow, who had travelled with him, was accused of having a hand in his death but she denied the allegations.

Plans were put in place for his burial but his remains were not released as his widow and family members engaged in a legal battle.

The court finally ordered that his corpse should be released.

In a statement on Wednesday, Dumo confirmed that his father’s body has been released.

“Consequently, the mortuary has released the mortal remains of High Chief Dr O. B. Lulu-Briggs to the family led by Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs, as ordered by the High Court on December, 23, 2019 and upheld by the Supreme Court of Ghana on February, 11, 2020,” the statement read.

Dumo also asked the public to ignore the report that he moved the remains of his father to an unknown location.

Uche Woke, Dumo’s media aide, said Seinye and her spokesman have once again done what they are “known for- lying to deceive the public and shifting attention from the true state of things’.

“Indeed, nothing meaningful or Godly should ever be expected from a mind that is badly corrupt. We are not surprised that Seinye’s hireling and overfed pawn, Oraye St. Franklin, came up with such ludicrous gibberish suggesting that Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs moved the corpse of his father against court order to an unknown destination,” Woke said.

“What the man and his pay-mistress have attempted to achieve is the same thing they are known for; rush to the media without shame and recklessly lie in the public space to deceive members of the public and shift attention from the true state of things as it concerns the mortal remains of High Chief (Dr.) O. B. Lulu-Briggs.

“Recall that after the Ghana Supreme court dismissed Seinye’s Certiorari application and stay of execution on 11th February 2020, she filed a new application on the same day; a development that made it impossible for Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs and the family to take custody of their father’s remains.”

Woke said the Ghana high court in a ruling on Tuesday, rejected Seinye’s fresh application asking the court to further restrain the mortuary and the Ghanaian police from releasing the body of her late husband to the family led by Dumo.

“This means that Seinye has once more lost at the court,” he said.
