Tragedy broke in the prominent Okunbo household this morning as Billionaire business mogul, Captain Hosa Okunbo, passed away, in London, after an enduring struggle with Cancer.
The Edo-based aristocrat, also known as Captain Hosa, was aged 63.
The deceased is also the father-in-law to the Olu Of Warri, Tsola Emiko.
The late Hosa, whose health had remarkably improved following treatments in London and German hospitals, was planning to return to Nigeria next week to attend the coronation of the new Olu of Warri, Tsola Emiko, who is married to his daughter, Ivie.
“He had his new Lagos home decorated and even bought a new Rolls Royce for the new king,” sources close to the family said.
