Nigerian Doctor Kills Wife, Attempts To Strangle Two Sons Before Committing Suicide In Texas

The death of a Nigerian couple found dead in apparent murder-suicide in their Texas home is being investigated by the Sugar Land police.

The husband and wife identified as Okigbo and Theresa Okigbo were found dead at their Greatwood home on Friday morning, December 18.

The discovery was made around 10:05 am at the Greatwood Subdivision in the 1500 block of Lane. Police said the case is being investigated as a murder-suicide.

On Saturday, Police said that their investigation revealed that Benjamin Okigbo strangled Theresa Okigbo to death. He then attempted to kill both of his 21-year-old sons by strangling them before he eventually killed himself by hanging.

Both of the sons survived the attack with injuries that are not -threatening. They are both receiving treatment at a hospital.

On Friday morning, the couple’s daughter, who doesn’t live at the home, went there after she became concerned. She then called 911 and told the dispatchers that her parents were dead.

“One of the kids dialed 911 apparently there was a fight or disturbance going on inside the residence,” Police chief Eric Robbins said.

When officers arrived, they found the couple’s bodies inside. They were both in their 50s.

Many neighbours were shocked when they heard the news. One said the couple had lived in the Greatwood home for about 20 years. She said she spoke to the wife a few days ago and nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

The investigation remains ongoing.
