Billionaire businessman, Captain Hosa Okunbo, has died at the age of 63.

Okunbo who is popular for being a philanthropist died after a failed battle with pancreatic cancer.

The professional pilot and chairman of Ocean Marine Solutions Limited (OMSL), died in a private hospital in London in the late hours of Saturday, August 7, 12 months after doctors said he had nine months to live.

Recall that he relocated to London for treatment a year ago.

Okunbo had earlier been reported to be in a coma in October 2020. Then, the rumour mill had it that his illness was due to the outcome of the last Edo State governorship election.

However, deceased dismissed the insinuations, noting that it was inhuman to link his illness to the result of the just-concluded Edo governorship election.

He said: “My attention has been drawn to a rash of social media posts concerning my health and the inhuman manner in which it is being orchestrated to look as if it was as a result of the outcome of the September 19 Edo State governorship election, in which I publicly supported Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

“It is evidently ungodly for people to gloat over the fact that I am not feeling well. I have never claimed to be a superhuman. I do not deny the fact that I am not well.

“I am outside the country for my medicals, which were delayed because of the lockdown occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“After a series of tests, my doctors confirmed that I have some health issues. It is, therefore, ill-advised and inhuman for those who are not comfortable with the position I took in the Edo election to joyfully circulate in the social media that I have health issues and that I have slid into a coma.

“Well, I leave them all to God.

“I am over 60 years. I thank God who gave me the gift of life, an opportunity to live a good life, the grace to build a legacy of achievements, and most importantly, a good name, which is better than silver and gold.

“I hold dearly to heart the words of the scriptures that there is a time to be born; and a time to die.”

The late Okunbo was born on January 7, 1958. He attended Government Primary School, Benin City, Edo State; Federal Government College, Warri, Delta State; Nigerian Civil Aviation Training Centre, Zaria, Kaduna State, and ACME School of Aeronautics, Fort Worth, Texas, USA.

Okunbo is survived by his widow, Nosa, and children.
