The CEO of Lym Consults said that ; ” I am still in deep shock over the sudden demise of a great son of Edo State, an elder brother, a distinguished Nigerian, a major player in the Oil and Gas industry and an accomplished philanthropist, Captain Idahosa Wells Okunbo. The news of his death came to me on Sunday afternoon as a rude shock. He was a major player in the Oil and Gas industry and an employer of labour who has helped greatly to get many Nigerians, especially those from the Oil rich Niger Delta Region out of the labour market. He touched many lives positively”.
“Personally, I will miss him greatly because he was a wonderful team player, a kind hearted man and a man who believed strongly in fairness. I have known him over the years and I must say that his death has created a big vacuum in the Oil and Gas industry where he excelled very well and I had so much respect for him. His death is a big blow”, he said.
While praying God to grant his gentle soul eternal rest in his bossom, Larry Otu added that God should comfort those he left behind the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
