Houston Based Couple tragic death in Nigeria

It was meant to be a grieving and pleasure trip; one to honor family members with their presence. It was also an opportunity to share love with kinsmen at Christmas time. Tragically, the lives of Houston Texas based couple; Mr. and Mrs. Don and Nkem Okoro alongside their 2 year old niece; Zizi where cut short by an encounter with armed robbers along the Benin – Onitsha highway while on their way to participate and officiate  at the burial of  Don’s only younger brother, Emmanuel who died very recently.

Zizi

The late couple also lost their daughter; Jennifer to cancer a few years ago. This brings to bear the state of insecurity in Nigeria and the constant fear in the minds of Diasporas who have full intentions of returning to their countries but have no confidence in the security apparatus. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Mr. and Mrs. Okoro and the five children they leave behind
