• Tragedy hits billionaire magnate as sibling yields to asthma attack

Even the garden loses its glamour, and the elder tree, its precious shade. The almond branch loses it avian tenants and the desultory sunlight eventually recedes. In the same vein, happiness and life deserts the Ogbara clan of Ago Ikorodu, Lagos as the family mourns the death of their beloved, Barrister Olawale Dawood Ogbara. He passed away on Sunday, September 16, 2016, at his Lagos residence, after suffering an asthma attack. He was aged 58.

Ogbara was the younger brother of Folorunso Afusat Alakija, Nigeria’s richest woman. The deceased was a successful lawyer during his lifetime. Dawood Ogbara was one of the first sons of the late Chief Lamidi Ogbara, the legendary businessman and billionaire from Ikorodu town, Lagos. For Alakija and her siblings, Ogbara’s sudden death amounts to a rude shock. The billionaire businesswoman shares a filial bond with her siblings, especially those from her mother’s side.
