Ekene dili Chukwu NIG. LTD
Ekene Dili Chukwu is a Nigerian transport and logistics group headquartered in Onitsha. Once the largest interstate bus operator, after the death of its founder, infighting among heirs followed and bus operations gradually went into decline.
The firm was founded by Augustine Ilodibe, an auto spare parts dealer who launched it after procuring a lorry in the mid-1950s to carry passengers and goods. The company emerged after the Nigerian Civil War to become a prominent bus operator within East Central State. It later acquired dealership of Mercedes-Benz trucks and the proprietor also diversified into other auto and non-auto sectors. The firm was a dominant bus operator in Nigeria in the 1980s and 1990s, with operations in all geo-political regions of the country.
