Nigerian Doctor kills Wife, attempts Murder on Sons before Committing Suicide in Texas


A Nigerian doctor identified as Benjamin Okigbo has allegedly killed his wife, Theresa Okigbo, who attempted to strangle his two sons before committing suicide in Texas.

Sugar Land police, who are currently investigating the death of the Nigerian couple found them dead in an apparent murder-suicide at their Greatwood home on Friday morning, December 18.
The Police revealed 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 life-threatening. They are both receiving treatment at a hospital.

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

Many of the neighbors were shocked when they heard the news, as one of them claimed that 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.
