Dec 21, 2014 – Picture: Houston Texas-Based Nigerian Couple Killed By Armed Robbers On Benin Onitsha While In Nigeria For Vacation

Houston-Based Husband And Wife Killed By Armed Robbers During Vacation In Nigeria

If Mrs Don and Mr Nkem Okoro had foresaw what will happen to them in Nigeria they wouldn’t have left their base in Houston Texas.

Pictured above are two Nigerians (couple) who spent their entire life in Texas. The couple died in a ghastly road accident caused by robbers on the popular Benin-Onitsha expressway while they were travelling to their village for the burial ceremony of Don’s mother.

According to family sources, the couple arrived Nigeria few days ago and were on their way to a burial when armed robbers attacked them on the aforementioned expressway but in a bid to escape from the dare devils, their driver took off leaving one of the robbers injured.

The other one was said to have rained bullets on the back Tyre of the Toyota Highlander SUV conveying them to the burial service when the car somersaulted severally killing everyone inside the car including a 3 year old girl..

Don and Nkem Okoro are survived by their five children who stayed back in Texas.

The entire Nigerian community in Houston are grieving over their untimely death.

They claimed the disaster could have been prevented if Nigerian Federal Government was security conscious.

The couple have not travelled to Nigeria since late 2003. This is their first visit in eleven years.

This is pathetic! May God console their children and family members.

    That is one of the reason why people abroad dont want to visit home, because no security and no good roads, while Nigerian leaders are there sharing money and Senators jumping the fence,, haba too poor

    This is pathetic,what then will happen to the children of the deceased ?They will have to grow up without their parents.I know a lot of people that have not travelled back to Nigeria in a long time for the fear of their lives.Its really sad that life is worth next to nothing in Nigeria that I call my fatherland .

    I can’t wait for Buhari to assume the leadership position. I’m Positive that all these senseless killing will stop. We need a leader in Nigeria today who will work tirelessly with law makers to amend the law that will send these Gentlemen on the Road to their expected grave beyond. Jonathan and his cronies are busy sharing money instead of working toward the welfare of their fellow citizens. Some of my adversaries may criticize me for putting blame on Jonathan yes! the buck stop on his desk as the commander in chief. This guy was elected as a leader to protect the life and property but instead enjoying his life with his friends. Under Jonathan watch Nigeria has become the most lawless nation in the World,there are lot of killings and nothing has been changed to halt this incessant killing . We don’t need a President who will just sit down at Aso Rock while the Country is going down the drain.This Country has to be restored back to its normalcy that is why Jonathan must go in few months time.

    Shame on GEJ and all his associates donating towards his re-election,in a country where the security personnel are not well equipped to face the security challenge in our highways,no good roads,the police are not well paid.
    In this same country some bad element that want kick-back from this most corrupt Government,donated billions of Naira just to have this corrupt Government back in power?.
    This is the right time for a change.

    news like this is so sadly rampant, this is why nigerians abroad are so scared to visit home, either you are attacked, or when you get back to your base in abroad, your life turns for the bad, spiritual attack here and there
