Edo billionaire, Capt. Hosa Okunbo is hale and hearty, his family has said in dismissal of speculations on his demise. The assertion came as an update in Capt. Hosa’s health
The business mogul with his hands in hospitality, shipping, agriculture, among others reportedly took ill last year following the Edo State governorship election. Capt. Okunbo was a strong opponent of Governor Godwin Obaseki in the 2020 election. He had backed Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the election.
The businessman took ill after the election but his associates were quick to delink his illness from the election.
Following fresh concerns on his state of health the family in a statement issued by Tinyan Okunbo rebuffed the claims of a downturn in the health of the businessman.
Capt. Hosa’s Health
Giving an update on Capt. Hosa’s health, the statement read: “Our attention has been drawn to the malicious and malevolent rumour making the rounds that our son, brother, father, grandfather and benefactor has gone to be with Lord.
“We hereby rebuke this rumour that originated from the pit of hell, and hereby state unequivocally, that Capt Idahosa Wells Okunbo is well, hale and hearty.
“Our brother, son and father will surely live beyond the rumour and God will judge those who delight in peddling fatal wishes on the innocent.
“We take solace in the fact that similar rumours in the past have been said of great men who had always proved the evil intentions of these wicked hearts wrong, and invariably lived beyond their expectations.
“For instance, Nigerians have not forgotten the case of Nnamdi Azikwe from whose case, we now draw inspiration that our brother, son, grandfather and benefactor will live to the fullness of his age and beyond in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. He is already testifying to The glory of God in his life and only God and God alone will take the glory in Jesus mighty name Amen and Amen.”
