Victor Okafor (EZEGO), -The Story Of Nigeria's King Of Money

Mention Victor Okafor and no one will twitch a muscle. But mention EZEGO, King of Money and you will see the eyes of many Nigerians light up with excitement. He would have been one of Africa’s billionaires.




 He was fair-skinned, spoke softly and warm smiles danced on his chubby cheeks accentuated by a not-too-bushy moustache. He was relatively very young but as at that time, he was very well-known and duly respected in the Nigerian business society.

Here is the story of a man of many sides, Chief Victor Nnamdi Okafor, the Eze Ego (King of Money) I of Ihiala aka Udu Bunch aka The Young Millionaire, the Igbo tycoon who died tragically at a time he was to be celebrating his birthday.



EARLY DAYS, EDUCATION AND GROWING UP


A first son and a native of Uzoakwa, Ihiala in Anambra State, the late Ezego was born on the 25th of December, 1964. Ezego’s story is often touted as one of the classic rags-to-riches stories in Nigeria. He had his primary school education at the Uzoakwa Primary School but he was forced to drop out in the secondary school, Abbot Boys’ Secondary School, Ihiala and eventually took to business.
His childhood was a very traumatic one and at a point, his own father reportedly disowned him when he was nabbed for being a member of a robbery gang that showed Onitsha traders hell on earth .


THE ESCAPE, BUSINESS AND MAKING MONEY


While some of his fellow gangsters were caught and punished, Ezego fled to Umumeni Village where his angry father was said to have driven him out. From there, he went to Umuduru, his mother’s village. However, things were not rosy for him at Umuduru and in 1989, he decided to move to Lagos where he joined a mentor. What happened years after that remain shrouded in mystery but the next time the world would be hearing of Ezego, he was already a multimillionaire, one of the crème de la crème of Lagos.


In Lagos, he set up the Ezego Shopping Complex on Allen Avenue (there was also a branch in Abuja) and also the Ezego Plaza on the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road. From these spots, he operated and controlled one of the biggest electronics store in Nigeria. His other companies were Vic-Winners International Limited, Ezego Nigeria Limited, Ezego Holdings Limited, Vitex Zinc Co. Limited and Ezego Properties Limited.


HIS WEALTH AND PROPERTY

Ezego built houses, villas and mansions all over the country, one of which was an made of glass. All his real estate as at 1999 outside Ihiala was put at about half a billion naira.
The expansive mansion that served as his country home in Ihiala was worth another N500 million with the marble used for the walls imported from Italy.



A LOVER OF CARS


As at the time Ezego was alive, he had one of the largest private car garages in all of Africa. He loved cars and was always purchasing the latest ones stocking his garages at Ihiala and Lagos. A car freak of the first class, his garage alone was valued at almost one billion naira. He once dropped N14 million to acquire just two posh cars: a Sedan Lincoln Continental Mark 8 and a Mercedes Benz R230 convertible from Moontrends, owned by Tayo Ayeni.
Actually, as at the time of his death, he left behind countless state-of-the-art cars, 70 houses all over Nigeria and overseas and over N10 billion naira in his bank account.


LOVE, FAMILY, ROMANCE AND MARRIAGE


He was married to the fair-complexioned and beautiful Laurita Nkechi, a princess from Akata in Imo State and the marriage produced eight children. Following the death of her husband, Princess Nkechi relocated from Ajao Estate where she had stayed with her husband to Lekki. As at December 2013, it was reported by Nigeria Business Guide that she was taking her husband’s business empire to greater heights with her children in top universities around the globe.
By the way, Ezego’s first son was from a Japanese woman. He also fathered kids with other women apart from his wife, Nkechi.

On Thursday, 14th March, 2002, there was a case (Suit Number CA/E/166M/2000) before the Court of Appeal, Enugu Judicial Division and it was between ezego’s wife and Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa on one hand as the appellants and Mrs. Elizabeth Onedibe, Citizens International Bank Limited, Zenith International Bank Limited and Diamond Bank Limited on the other hand as the respondents. ezego had his accounts with these three banks.



HIS DEATH


On the 25th of December, 1999, death came knocking on ezego’s door. But, he was not even aware in the slightest. ezego’s birthday was on the 25th of December and it was his usual tradition to storm Ihiala, his hometown every Christmas for the double celebration (actually, it was a triple celebration: his birthday, Christmas and the New Year). His kinsmen and women in Ihiala eagerly awaited his annual homecoming which meant a lot of goodies for everyone. And so it was that fateful December of 1999. ezego and everyone in his family were in high spirits and plans were fully made for the trip back home.


Ezego was in the habit of storming the sleepy, rustic hometown of Ihiala, impressing his people with his legendary wealth and affluence. Thus, the 1999 edition was no different. The whole of Nigeria would know that ezego was in town. Some of the most sought-after musicians in the world’s most populous black nation were billed to entertain the guests at the most exciting galore of the year. Afrobeat maestro, Femi Kuti and his Positive Force Band were billed to dazzle the guests and rock the community to its very foundation.

To show how serious ezego took the party, the moneybag personally visited the Afrikan Shrine to meet Femi Anikulapo-Kuti in order to ensure that all went on smoothly. The party was billed to start from the night of Christmas to the Boxing Day (26th) so ezego decided to start his trip from Lagos on the 23rd of December. But little did he know that all his efforts were in vain. He was unconsciously planning for his own funeral.

But what precisely happened? On the 23rd of December, ezego left Lagos as planned, heading towards the southeastern region of Nigeria. He took off in a most flashy style, in a convoy of six of his finest automobiles. These included a Lincoln Navigator (1999 model), limousine, blue Porsche, Lexus jeep, a Cherokee jeep and a latest Honda.

The interesting thing about that fateful trip was that ezego would normally fly to either Enugu or Port Harcourt where he would then be driven in a convoy to Ihiala. However, the fatal rates of air crashes during that period claimed to have made him change his mind. The outcome was disastrous for the mogul.

For some unknown reasons, ezego decided to get behind his Lexus jeep in the convoy and drive himself all the way from Lagos to Ihiala. But somewhere along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, the first trouble reared its nasty head. Trouble started when the Cherokee’s jeep’s engine became faulty. But ezego was in a hurry and could not even entertain the idea of missing his schedule and arriving on time. So he decided to keep ‘managing’ the jeep for as long as possible. But by the time the jeep got to Asaba in Delta State, the car broke down completely in the oil-rich state. Now, things were not getting funny anymore. ezego was obviously in distress. His people were waiting for him back home so the carnival would start in earnest but here was his car that he shelled out of millions of naira for, giving him the worst headache of his life at a most unexpected moment.

But you know how dangerous Nigerian roads are. ezego did not want to leave his cherished automobile in the middle of nowhere in Asaba at the mercy of robbers. Not the car he bought with so much money. So, he bellowed at one of his boys to purchase a chain so the jeep would be towed. The lad returned with the chain, which was then attached to the faulty jeep. However, that was the beginning of his problem because ezego was said to have insisted on towing the broken-down vehicle all by himself with him driving the Lexus pulling the Cherokee. So he was in front while another of his boys was behind the wheels of the Cherokee. Well, no one was in a position to argue with the boss, so they continued their trip until that fateful moment when they reached a spot between Ozabulu and Okija on the Onitsha/Owerri Road. At that point, they were just two kilometers away from Ihiala in Anambra State, ezego’s hometown and their final destination, and that was when death decided to unveil his dreadful figure.
ezego reportedly ran into a damaged portion of the road while he was going down a steep slope and all of a sudden, he stepped on the brakes.



The driver of the Cherokee behind him was caught unawares and as he was not even prepared for the sudden stop, he suddenly rammed the Cherokee into ezego’s shiny Lexus, sending the millionaire tumbling down a deep ditch by the roadside. It must however be noted that there are some other slightly different accounts of precisely how the accident happened.

Other reports stated that it was actually the towing chain between the two jeeps that snapped, thus forcing the Cherokee at the rear to ram into ezego’s Lexus making him lost control and plunging into that horrible ditch. Immediately this happened, his convoy was thrown into a pandemonium. Those in his convoy made frantic and desperate efforts to get him out of the ditch and get him the most effective medical attention promptly. By the time they finally succeeded in getting ezego out of the ditch, he had sustained a deep gash and his face was massively puffed up, thus disfiguring his handsome face.


He was rushed to the nearby Lady of Lourdes Hospital (where ezego incidentally made a donation of N15 million naira a few years before the accident). He was still alive and stable when they brought him to the hospital and all the medical workers went into an overdrive to save the life of a man they know as a mentor and generous giver. However, things got worse and to make matters even more frightening, there was no doctor on duty. By the time a medical doctor eventually showed up, ezego was already bleeding through his mouth, he was having internal bleeding and was already in shock. All attempts to stabilize him failed.


At that point, his family members suggested that he be quickly moved to a better-equipped hospital in Port Harcourt. At this point, his tale becomes hazy as it is not known whether he finally died while he was on his way to Port Harcourt or while he was being prepared for a flight to Lagos from Port Harcourt. ezego died on the 26th, Boxing Day. He was just 34.


THE AFTERMATH


However, his community is yet to forget him. Those who were old enough to remember him still miss him sorely while those who are teenagers now barely have an idea of who he was. After ezego’s death, the same fate that befell many African entrepreneurs crept in, and his vast business empire collapsed. In December 2013, YES International! revealed that ezego’s empire had collapsed and the majestic house he built at his hometown of Uzoakwa Ihiala was a ghostly shadow of its former self:


For instance, the flowers and street lights that hitherto beautified his popular ezego Road have either been vandalized or over grown by weeds. Even some parts of the road have been washed away by erosion. The popular entrance to the inviting ezego Crescent has also lost its beauty and glory, as the heavenly trees and flowers that used to welcome visitors are gradually dying off. His magnificent country home, 15 years after his death, is seriously crying for a new look. It is also fast falling apart and begging for attention. In fact, some parts of the glass house have started falling off and decaying. Even the uncompleted duplexes inside are still the way he left them.
His pretty and very fair-complexioned wife was said to have married the family lawyer and precisely what happened to his property and estate is still a controvers.

The controversies in ezego’s life did not subside even after his death. His lawyer and the person that was responsible for the execution of his will, Barnabas Igwe was murdered in cold blood, with his wife, Abigail on the 2nd of September, 2002, barely three years after ezego’s demise. ezego’s will was thus, never read, and the exact beneficiaries are not known (at least as at January 2006). 


The Inspector-General of Police, Sunday Ehindero, was called upon to investigate all leads (including ezego’s widow and a former police commissioner) relating to the murder of the Igwes but like many murder cases in Nigeria, it led to nothing useful. ....

This is what happens when you deal in blood money. Eebohs and blood money are like 1 and 2. Even the wife wasn't spared. Perhaps him, the wife and lawyer took the oath together. Hence them dying not so long after him.
Hardly can you see any of them that has clean money.
For all the hungry eeboh girls that are looking for big boys to marry, not asking what the big boy is doing. Hope you can see.

I suspect drug money because of the Asia connection. Drug money has been in existence with Nigerians since the 1970's. His wife is also a big suspect in the death of his lawyer and wife. He obviously had kids all over the place. This also teaches us that every disappointment is a blessing. If things work against you, just accept it. If he would have chilled and driven to a hotel to spend the night after so many bad signs, he would have still been alive. Everything happens for a reason. Good or bad.

Eze money! This guy used to be my one of my uncle's childhood friend until he slowly started withdrawing from him and left for the US. He became wary as his source of wealth became questionable. Each time I pass by his house, that dilapidated and rusted arc at the entrance bearing his name reminds me that NOTHING LASTS FOREVER.

Stella, most of what was written on that Facebook page about Ezego are LIES and it hurts me that his memory is being disrespected like this. I know becos he and his family were CLOSE family friends with mine for YEARS. Ezego was never a ritualist, he did Yahoo Yahoo on international levels but he never killed anyone. Secondly, he was never part of any robbery gang. His father left his mom when she was pregnant with him, ezego never knew his real father, his father's mother was the only father that he knew. Victor was a very kind hearted man and helped the poor a lot that's why he was so popular in his town. His mother later remarried and had other children apart from him but he basically raised himself up by himself. The wife Nkechi never married his lawyer pls, that's a lie. That woman suffered after Ezego died becos his family were fighting for his properties with the wife. Nkechi is still a happy single mother up till now as I type, she's only focused on her kids. Ezego never died on the way to PH as claimed on the FB account, he died at the International airport in Lagos on the way to being flown out of the country for treatment sustained in the road accident. People shouldn't come here and write rubbish calling the man ritualist etc. Didnt your mothers not teach you to Respeck the dead? R.I.P Victor Okafor. May God rest your soul IJN. Amen

Anonymous said...

From this narrative, I think the late Ezego's death could have been avoided.

Peharps if the hospital he was rushed to was 'well equipped' and a qualified doctor was 'on ground'. He may have survived. This version of his story suggests that the late Ezego simply had access to information (maybe) based on his Japaneses connection which exposed him to wealth creation through the businesses he ventured into.

The mid 90s and early 2000s was a time of what I call "New industrial revolution"... with disruptive innovations in electronics and I.Ts..which created lots of entrepreneurs. These were desperate youngsters who simply keyed into these opportunities....Not everything is 'ritual'..ask Mark Zukerberg and the new set of billionaires.

Maybe...he joined some cult for 'self protection' after he made his billions...which could have been out of ignorance...only God knows.

As for the current state of his estate, its a pity that his family...out of 'selfish motivated tussle for who gets the lion share' allowed things to degenerate to this point.

Thankfully his kids are coming up...like the narrative states "in good schools". I sincerely hope they are able to rise above these challenges and uphold their dad's legacy.

What is blood money and how exactly do you get money from blood?
What is the proof there was a connection btw blood and money? What if he was killed by the wicked who enjoyed seeing people suffering and didn't want their source of torturing people disturbed.
If he made a covenant with the Okija shrine, where is the proof? When a rich man dies, people just assume the worst. Igbos are known to be good in business and business principles. Has anyone thought of that. What if a pastor advised him to drive and not fly? I know a woman who lost her husband and her friend also lost her husband after coming back from seeing a pastor who is gifted and sees the past, present and future.
Nobody really knows what killed Ezego. He was probably over exposed. I don't know ooo. Sad story....

All I deduced from this story is that the guy died from lack of prompt medical care which unfortunately up till now is still not available in Nigeria. Open your minds y'all! Why is it that people don't die often outside Nigeria from jazz, witchcraft and what not...I'm not saying there's no spiritual side to it but the main reason people die like fowl in Nigeria is simply because of poor economic and medical facilities period!

@Sweet choco, you re truly a foul for ur comment. How old were u when he was alive? What Arusi u talking about? The problem wit most of u is just ignorance. U guys cant separate yahoo hustle to money ritual. If money ritual was that easy most Nigerians will be ritualists.
Eze-ego was into 419 but not money ritual. Otulu like u.

Jinifa is one rotten money bag. He'll meet u today and be asking for naked pics immediately. Married women inclusive. Beautiful wife with 5 beautiful children. The first 2 are abroad now. He doesn't relent. He disturbed me for 3 fucking years.......

NUVI HONEY said...

Sassy meruche, you say? There's nothing like blood money? I laugh. Even the abroad gaan you think they don't do blood money?
How can you say there's nothing like blood money? Ask a proper warri person to gist you about otokutu bridge and what went down there, what about otokoto rituals that reigned? One chance bus survivors that tell they near death experiences, ritualistic that confess when caught, have you heard of ogboni ?.
This has nothing to do with African mentality. Blood money is as real as the air you breathe, you know it, stop forming fake woke.

That Uptown Girl said...

Jinifa too is a ritualist. He is from my kindred. Everyone knows his hands are not clean.

NUVI HONEY said...

Sassy are you an American?

Sassy, just doesn't believe in spiritual things
But, believe me you dearie, blood money is real
Ndi ogu ego!
My cousin told me a story of one girl that was seeing a very rich man like that in warri, she had a boyfriend, but was cashing on the man's money
The man was sucking her blood
Literally
Few months after they started dating and having sex(they must have sex with you)
The girl started drying up
She did all the test doable, but nothing was found

She dried up and eventually died in her boyfriends house.
Abeg I dey fear oh.

Didn't he worship at Okija shrine? He had a deal but the deal was to be rich for a short time.

Was it Arusi or Okija shrine?

Esther mgbeke when did you move from abusing me to concurring with my comments? Some of you make me laugh on this blog 😂

Anon15:38 and Until you start seeing things black and white...which I guess is an open mind you mean....you really won't grow. I only asked a simple question which you're yet to answer....what is blood money??

Tilly said...

Anon...ritual or not. It was nit clean money obviously. And how can u be so sure about how he got his money? Did u live in their house? The article said the source of his money was unknown.It is strange though how he just became a millionaire in a shirt period without any known invention or anything.

A very riveting piece. I was enthralled with this story from beginning to end.

Thanks for sharing, Stella.

And his body had not rot after all the years. It was still identifiable in the shrine. Oga o

Anonymous said...

Gbam! True story!

Jay Blaze said...

Ezeogos corpse was clearly tagged in the Okija grove adjacent to the shrine.He was never buried.A cursory glance throughs newsmagazine's of the day will refresh memories.It is a well known fact that if you are killed by the Oracle,your body is returned to the Shrine upon death.It is pertinent to note that he had the accident at Okija..Ego ogwu na nakwa na ogwu
