Chinedu Ubachukwu has emerged winner of the 11th edition of Gulder Ultimate Search.
He beat the two other finalists Cosy Joe & Afolabi Emmanuel to the ultimate prize by being the only person to complete the final task of retrieving the General’s War Helmet.
This victory came after the 24-year-old graduate of Petroleum & Gas at University of Port Harcourt successfully navigated his way through the forest and managed to row his canoe across the heavy currents of Aguleri River.
The other two warriors failed in their bids to get to the mysterious destination across the waters.
With this achievement, the native of Anambra State will exchange the treasure for a whopping N10million and a brand new SUV.
As soon as Chinedu located & retrieved the General’s War Helmet, anchorman Chidi Mokeme inducted him into the exclusive Order of Heroes as the 11th “Ultimate Man”.
The other finalists will get cash prizes for the positions they finished in.
