OUR FATHER WAS A HERO, AN EPITOME OF TRUTH – Erigbuem Family

By Sunday Memeh

Family members and friends of Chief Ignatius Igabor Erigbuem, the Keonyerinieze of Owa Kingdom, have described their late father as a hero, an epitome of truth and true definition of a titan.

Speaking with Ika Weekly Newspaper Reporter during an interview, the fourth daughter of late Chief Ignatius Igabor Erigbuem, Ms. Gloria Erigbuem described her late as a hero, a mentor, philanthropist, a friend, a father to all and true definition of a titan.

She further stated that her father was a known businessman, a great farmer, an industrialist and an exporter of all kinds of essential goods and services.

She noted that he is survived by his wife, Dame Faith Erigbuem, 9 Children, Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren and other family members.

She also disclosed that her father joined his ancestors on Wednesday, June 7 2023 and he will be buried between 26 to 29 of October, 2023, at his family compound in Owa-Alero Community in Ika North-East Local Government Area of Delta State.

Also speaking, the second grandson of late Chief Erigbuem, Mr. Bryant Erigbuem while explaining his little experience with his grandfather said, ” I have read tales about great men in history and I have been fortunate to encounter a few great men as well but none of them come close to my grandfather.

My grandfather was the greatest man the world may never know enough about, but those that we are lucky enough to know can attest to the truth of this statement.

To me, he was not only my grandfather, but my father, my moral compass, my closest friend and the greatest teacher I ever had.

His greatest legacy lies in the community and family he brought to life by virtue of his eminence.

There are not enough words to express the magnitude of my grandfather, except that if by the end of my life I am able to achieve just a fraction of what he accomplished, then, I would rest, knowing that I have lived a blessed life because he embodied God’s greatest gift and lesson to us which is Love,” he concluded.
