Breaking : US Based Nigerian Doctor Shoots Wife, Commits Suicide

 

A US based Nigerian medical doctor has shot his wife and thereafter turned the gun on himself.

The incident happened in Texas , Saturday morning .

The couple whose wife is a nurse are blessed with three children. 

No one could tell the reason for his action but this is how USA based veteran journalist Azuka Jebose reported the incident 



"*Morning Texas Tragedy*

At sunrise this cold Saturday, Dr. Ben Okigbo, a medical doctor in Houston, pulled up a handgun and fatally shot his wife. His wife was a nurse too. A few seconds later he turned the gun on himself. These hours their three children are dealing with the tragedy of losing their parents at home. We will never know why Dr. Okigbo, decided to kill his wife and commit suicide thereafter.

It’s my understanding that Dr. Okigbo was originally from *Idumuje Unor* while his wife was from *Akwukwu Igbo*, both towns are in Delta State of Nigeria. This is a developing story. *Stay With Me*

    1. May there soul rest in peace. The investigating team should carry out a DNA test first without the knowledge of the kids....

  2. Dr. Okigbo probably found out he wasn't the biological father of the kids.

  3. It's sad news. May their souls rest in peace. Amen. We appeal to Texan authorities, and churches to help the children they left behind. That will be greatly appreciated.

  4. I could be speaking from an African understanding, re there no mistakes with DNA tests? Am not talking abt weather the man found out the kids weren't his or not,just 4d records,its possible that couldn't hv been d reason he snuffed out his wife n himself.

  9. Sometimes arrogance between couple might be the cause of this tragedy, this is synonymous with Nigerians in Texas

  11. No matter what their problems are death is not a solution. May heal the children of the trauma and stigma.

  16. It's indeed tragic! What could have gone wrong? My heart goes out these traumatized children orphaned by their dad's action.

  17. It is better to seek counsel for a turbulent relationship than committing suicide. Divorce is even a better option. May God help the children get along with the trauma and stigma.
