Captain Hosa Okunbo, has died age 63
Okunbo, a skilled pilot and philanthropist, died Friday night (Saturday), a year after doctors said he would live only nine months. He was 63 years old at the time.
Captain Hosa Okunbo wife, Nosa, and children survive him after he traveled to London for treatment a year ago.
There were rumors in October of last year that he was in a coma and that his condition was caused by the outcome of the Edo State governorship election.
“Hosa Okunbo says there is a time to be born and a time to die.”
The business mogul shot down the allegations, saying it was inhuman to link his condition to the outcome of the recent Edo governorship race.
“My attention has been directed to a rash of social media posts concerning my health and the inhumane manner in which it is being staged to appear as though it is a result of the outcome of the September 19 Edo State governorship election, in which I publicly backed Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu,” he added.
“It is obviously immoral for someone to take pleasure in the fact that I am ill. I’ve never asserted that I’m a superhuman. I don’t dispute that I’m not feeling well.
“I’m out of the nation for my medicals, which were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic-related lockdown.
