Our heart goes to the family and friends of the Okoro’s who recently lost two irreplaceable gems in the tragic death of Houston-based Don & Nkem Okoro while visiting Nigeria to join other family members to lay to rest Don Okoro’s brother who recently passed away and also enjoy the festive season in Nigeria. However, the late Okoro’s plans were soon destroyed by men of the underworld who took away the lives of this beautiful and amiable couple.
According to a close friend of the family, 2 weeks before this tragic incident, Don was still in shock and was telling his friend that he could not believe that his younger brother ‘Emmanuel’ was gone. This tragic incident was reported to have been a result of armed robbery and further reports by a close source said the late couple were ambushed and not even given a chance to live. The Driver was reported to have survived the attack and was taken to the hospital thereafter, but upon receiving initial medical treatment, he absconded from the hospital and was reported to be on the run, possibly fearing for his life.
With a heavy heart, we are using this medium to send our condolence to the family and friends of the Okoro’s and the children they left behind.
