The death of Mazi Moses Okoye, the father of Jude, Paul And Peter Okoye , was so sudden that those who saw him few hours before he died in their Omole home in Ikeja are still in shock.
According to Encomium, just before the septugenarian’s tragic death, he was clad in only singlet and boxers, watching cable television (Africa Magic) with some visitors until about 10 pm 2 days ago (Monday, November 24, 2014) when he retired to his bedroom where he suddenly collapsed.
He was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital, but he unfortunately gave up before doctors attended to him.
The Jos (Plateau state)-based Pa Okoye, who left Jos for Lagos some two weeks ago for a knee surgery, normally had respiratory (breathing) issues, which many believe might have led to his death.
He had an appointment with his doctor yesterday (Tuesday, November 25, 2014) over his recent knee surgery. Before his death, he had sat upon a thriving “pure water” and bakery business in Jos. And only two years ago, Pa Okoye lost his wife, Josephine to cancer.
