This year has started on a rather terrifying way, as Nigeria continues to record daily deaths due to the deadly coronavirus and other illnesses.

Despite the production of vaccines, the daily record of those who tested positive has continued to rise in an alarming rate.

We have also witness deaths of many prominent Nigerians, who despite their wealth and resources were not able to survive the deadly pandemic which has ravaged our communities.



In this article, we look at four Nigerian billionaires we have lost to the cold hands of death.

First on the list, was the demise of Prince Bolu Akin-Olugbade. The billionaire auto freak died last week as a result of complications arising from Coronavirus. The Aare Onakakanfo of Owu Kingdom until his death had the highest collection of Rolls Royce cars in Nigeria.

Then came the sudden death of Rosemary Adebutu, wife of Nigerian billionaire, Kessington Adebutu. She also died last week after a brief illness.

Another death that shocked the entire hospitality industry was the demise of Shaka Momoh, founder and Chairman of Planet One hotels and events. The art collector and astute businessman also died last week as a result of complications from Coronavirus.

Lastly, was the death of former Nigerian minister of commerce and industry, Jubril Martins-Kuye. The78-year-oldpolitician died on Sunday morning at his hometown, Ago-Iwoye in Ogun State. During his lifetime, he served as a senator during the Third Republic before being appointed by the Olusegun Obasanjo administration as the minister of state for finance where he served till 2003.
