The Late Ambassador Chief Deinde Fernandez

Right now it seems the center can no longer hold in the family of late African Business Diplomat cum Ambassador Plenipotentiary, Chief Anthonio Oladeinde Fernandez who died on September 1st, 2015 as an online war between one of his daughters, Abimbola born by his estranged wife Sandra Price aka Aduke and his last wife, Halima is brewing out of proportion.
Revelations spilling out from the comfort and luxury of the late chief’s family over his estate shows that, the fabulously wealthy oil and diamond magnate may have died an unhappy man and even in his grave, he might be nursing fears as to how his family will maintain his esteem and estate after death.

The war which started as a personality clash between Abimbola his 5th daughter who described herself as Heiress to the Deinde Fernandez’s empire and his last wife, Halima started weeks after the Chief’s burial in Brussels, Belgium last October as Halima is alleged to have claimed that Abimbola is not a legitimate daughter of the late African billionaire and even went to the extent of describing her late mum, Aduke as a “whore”. Of course, Abimbola has equally thrown some tirades back in the direction of her step mum, Halima claiming that she is not legally married to her father and therefore has no right to the benefits from his estate.

Abimbola equally claimed that Halima and her “gang” (Whatever she meant by that) conspired to bury her dad in Belgium against his wish to be buried in Lagos-Nigeria. She claimed that her step mother didn’t deem it fit to invite her and some of her siblings to the Brussels funeral but for providence which permitted them to witness their father’s funeral. She also claimed that Halima made some demeaning statements about her and her late mother during the church service in Brussels. For instance, Abimbola alleged that Halima said something like “And I know you are up there with the only woman whom you really loved, Barbara Joyce” (Fernandez’s late American wife before Aduke) an act which Abimbola considered as a purposeful dig by Halima to denigrate the memory of her late mum. Abimbola’s mum the late Aduke Fernandez was the woman who sued the Chief with the biggest and most expensive alimony case in Scotland in year 2003 which was later settled out of court due to lack of legal material evidence. The chief didn’t forgive her until she passed away in year 2013 after a cancer affliction.

However, in a new revelation gathered by this blog, the late Onije-Onimu of Egba land must have died a heart broken man.  The new allegation is that some of his children were after his money and not his welfare during his last days on earth. The source hinted that the late Baron of Dudley tried very hard to reach out to his children and put his house in order in his dying days but none of them honored his invitation. Looking at it from the prism of Abimbola’s fight with Halima, it could not be ascertained if the decision to abandon their father in his dying moment was as a result of the bitter feud between them and their step mother Halima.
Although another source who is probably sympathetic to the Kano State-Northern Nigeria born Halima said she spent the better part of her entire marriage life with the African Chief trying to mend fences between the man and his estranged kids so she could secure peace for herself as well. “But with the recent break out of hostilities within the family, it is very obvious that the love of money is beclouding all senses of reasoning” echoed  the family source who is very disturbed with the turn out of events just four months after the demise of the billionaire diplomat.

Is Abimbola a Lesbian?
Another court of sources close to the late billionaire’s family are alleging that there was a feud between Abimbola and her late rich dad over her choice of sex mate during his life time. The sources who backed their allegation with series of tweets purportedly exchanged between Abimbola and one of her friends over the matter of her deep relationship with a female lover and her father’s frown against the odious relationship alleged that the chief in his life time was in strong denial of his daughter’s alleged weird love life. They equally alleged that Abimbola broke her dad’s heart because she was allegedly daring to marry a woman friend; a proposal her dad vehemently opposed in his life time and this according to our source made her become so cruel to her dad and was never friendly with him till he passed away.
Of course, this blog is not confirming to our readers that the highly respected Heiress to the late Deinde Fernandez’s empire is a lesbian. But the allegation and series of tweets published with this report are the only bankable evidence to ascertain the allegation.
In some other tweets, Halima was alleged to have described Abimbola as a “bastard” but Abimbola who is an emerging singer and violin player has severally denied Halima’s allegation with counter tweets which are sometimes down right insultive. She has also  been seen on several blogs in compassionate postures with her late dad, Deinde Fernandez.  Her new battle, however, will be the need to wash her image off the lesbianism allegation which seems to be daring her integrity in the new face off with step mum.

It is equally said that Halima has sent in a friendly proposal to Abimbola severally during her father’s life time but the heiress rejected it choosing to be on a war path with her step mum, who she saw as usurping the role and position of her late mum, Aduke.  Halima ended up not succeeding with Abimbola’s friendship proposal, a situation that might have lead to the present regime of war. On who did what with the late Chief during his dying moment, a source said, Halima did a lot to support her late husband.  “It was Halima who stood with Chief all through his dying days while the children stayed away. While Abimbola may lie that she didn’t attend Dad’s funeral, pictures tell a different story. Even though most of his children kept away from their father’s sick bed, they all came down to Brussels (Belgium) to honor dad’s funeral with Halima allegedly picking transportation and hotel bills for two of his sons and few family members. She allegedly gave them clothes from their father’s wardrobe and pocket money all through the funeral as well as arranging the funeral event which was moderate but quite expensive.
Halima was said to have personally sent her chauffer to pick Abimbola from the airport to see her father’s body at the mortuary. An aide to Mrs. Halima Fernandez, who also joined the chauffer to pick up Abimbola, alleged that Abimbola’s conduct was quite appalling to him to say the least. However, Abimbola in a recent tweet denied this new allegation, claiming that they were not chauffeured in any of her father’s limousine and Rolls Royce cars but in a ‘common bus’ from the airport to the mortuary and down to church.

The event which had high profile Nigerian celebrities like former Nigerian Vice Presidential candidate and founder of Later Rain Assembly, Lagos, Pastor Tunde Bakare, Ovation International Magazine Publisher Bashorun Dele Momodu, Dr. Ozolua Giwa Amu with a host of other top notch Nigerians had the presence of late Chief Fernandez’s first child Chief Mrs. Teju Philips in attendance.
Teju Philips a former commissioner for Special Duties under the tenure of Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Lagos State and who is said to once upon a time have a misunderstanding with Dad, was equally there to give her father a last minute honor.
A pained family source and sympathizer to the embattled Halima Fernandez said “it is foolishness on the part of any family member to at this point try to rubbish the late man’s wife after all the love and support she showered on the man” “That is because the woman fought hard to bring the family together, even at the high cost of her relationship to the late Chief. The late Chief Fernandez was said to be very angry with his children and the way they turned out at a point in his dying days.

Another close source, Mr. Chimazuru Oblong Nnamdi who allegedly read the funeral oration at the burial, said he was saddened that Abimbola had decided to battle her stepmother on the social media. He revealed that he actually tried to set the record straight and advise Abimbola on what is expected of her.
Using his twitter handle @grandiluminati, he revealed how he was invited to have dinner and a drink of  fine Guatemalan Rum with the late Chief Fernandez one evening in Brussels, months before his death, during the course of dinner and the privileged encounter, Chief Fernandez was said to have called his first daughter Chief (Mrs.) Teju Philips and one of the Lagos traditional chiefs and that he vividly remembered the conversation between Chief and  his phone guests, because Chief Fernandez had her (Teju Philips) on speaker and what he said to her towards the end was a bit strange. He told Teju that if and whenever he dies, if any of his children disturbs and troubles his wife (Halima) he would hunt them down from the grave.
He said Teju Philips had assured the old man that she will never go against his wish or allow any one to do same. Surprisingly, Chief Fernandez died few months later.
All attempts to get Mrs. Halima Fernandez’s reaction have not been successful. This blog gathered that the entire Olumegbon family of Lagos has reached out to Mrs. Fernandez  on the matter but were told that she will talk to them very soon in Lagos when she comes for her sixth month prayers. That by then, she will submit to them audio and written documents from the late Chief in front of the family elders. Until then, she is restrained from commenting now.
