Ancestral home of Captain Hosa condemns rumour of his death

The Odionwere, Elder-In-Council and the people of Orhua, the ancestral home of the Benin multi-billionaire and philanthropist, Idahosa Wells Okunbo, popularly known as Captain Hosa, has condemned the recent rumour if his death.

The leaders of the agrarian village in Uhunmwode Local  Government Area of Edo State, have condemned the false rumour said it was evil for anyone to have claimed that their son was dead, “whereas he was hale, hearty and alive in overseas, where he travelled to.”

Orhua community, in a press statement endorsed by the Odionwere (leadership by the oldest man), Pa Asiboja frowned at the false news, declaring it, as a “deadly evil and most unthinkable thing to have been instigated by men and women, who were created by God…”

The community, one of the oldest Bini communities, also described as false, a media comment by one Osazuwa Ugiangbe, that the “Ancestors of Orhua are angry with Captain Hosa because he did not use the money he spent on a certain evil venture to develop Orhua.”

The statement wondered how Ugiangbe, who is not from the village and some others which consist of the Irhue Clan, would always join detractors to mock the community.

Describing Captain Hosa as an illustrious son, who had done very well for his Orhua people and in the affairs of men, the Odiinwere asserted that “he is a prophet honoured at home and abroad. Orhua community places great values on the children, particularly their children, hence they could go the length to protect them.”

Pa Asiboja queried how Ugiangbe got to know about the “angry ancestors” maintaining that Captain Hosa had remained a generous and progressive-minded personality, who had benefited his village and is loved by all, adding that the billionaire had always continued in the worthy footsteps of his grandfather, Pa Okunbo Igiewe and this immediate father Rev. Robert Amos Okunbo, who although had both passed on, “are still respected by the people of the village.”

The statement, therefore, called on Captain Hosa, not to be deterred by unjust comments by some people, but to continue to work for the progress of the society and forgive those who wronged him, as he would be rewarded accordingly by God.

While assuring Captain Hosa of the prayers and support of the community, the Odinwere thanked His Royal Majesty, Oba Ewuare II, the Oba of Benin, for his fatherly disposition to Captain Hosa, as he also urged men and women of goodwill to do same.
