Popular Benin billionaire chief and business magnate, Captain Idahosa (Hosa) Okunbo, is dead.
Okunbo, father in-law to the soon-to-be coronated 21st Olu of Warri, Prince Tsola Emiko, died abroad.
He was 63 years old.
The deceased was said to battling cancer for years leading to his hospitalization in London when he died on Saturday night.
Captain Okunbo, a trained commercial pilot, had chains of businesses spanning agro-allied, petroleum, telecommunications, power, real estate, banking industries and other sectors.
Several sources who confirmed the incident said the deceased had been abroad since Governor Godwin Obaseki won his re-election in 2020.
