A "Freak accident" is an

A "Freak accident" is an unusual type accident. You should get yourself better educated, and refrain from the obsession of feeling the need to post something.

senseless building,lots of money, no brain

One cannot but wonder how we build houses in nigeria. All the plot occupied with no room for cross ventilation, no room for plants,every bits of wall and floor glittering,why should a woman not slid and died.Go to Ghana you will know the difference between a house owned by a nigerian and another owned by a ghanaian.Why would there not be incident of collapsed building when the weight the house is carrying is more than the support?We build massive edifice with no sense.

A Tub Mat Costs €1

Such a careless death when a tub mat costs about one euro. It is a plastic, slip-proof mat that is grated on both sides. I was surprised once while visiting home, I discovered it was missing in the bathtub, I sent back dozens just to make sure it was in every tub. All those Nollywood mansions they build nowadays that lack basic, standard fixtures. People should be more careful especially where bathroom railings are missing. Sha, my condolences to the Okiros and may her Soul rest in peace, regardless her legacy.

I can c dat u r jst heartless

I can see that you are heartless to the point that this woman lead others to loose their job just because of her looting,well their is no peace for the wicked.

let's be careful about how we spend our life on earth

my sincere condolence to the okiro's family. let the living learn a lesson from the death, what a transient world we live in. Life is a trust we all one give account of our stewardship.

That is how news is reported

That is how news is reported all over the world. What that person did is always reported especially if the person concerned is prominent. Sahara reporters did nothing out of the otdinary. People should stop hiding the truth.

Sentiments!!!!!!!!!

The comments by some people shows the sentiments that caused Nigeria to be what it is today .... rottenly corrupt. If I may asked which one is greater? The died or the living. So we are simply saying if you are a thief and you died then your sins should not be mentioned. No wonder the evil polictians have been having free day. Many will called themselves Pastors, Imam, Chief etc so that the evil they do should not be mentioned. People shallow reasoning is such that when these thieves died the loot go back to original owner. Foolishness is all I can see in these comments.

R.I.P.

May her Soul Rest In Peace, Amen.

Stop Accussing Saharareporters

What Mrs. Okiro did in her life is her legacy. When people die, their legacies live after them. If an armed robber dies, how can you avoid mentioning his records. What do you remember about Anini and Oyenusi? Why should white collar thieves be exempted? Nigerians have to begin to think about how their obituaries will be written. Perhaps, they will then stop stealing and leave a good name. Saharareporters is doing what is acceptable in civilized societies, what is morally correct and it deserves to be commended, not condemned. May she rest in peace, but we will never forget the millions she stole - which unfortunately she had to leave behind. A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, according to the scriptures.

Pls watch that bathtub everybody

I appeal to everyone to be extremely careful in the bathtubs. That slippery basin is a killer anytime. I recently had a terrible fall that was nearly fatal in my house. I had a similar experience in a hotel. The older you are, the risker it is. many Nigerians including those I know have died from accidents in the bathtubs. Pls get read of if you cam. My prayers goes to the Okilos.

THIS IS CALLED KARMA FOR THE MONEY LOOTED

THIS ACCIDENTS ARE DUE TO PEOPLE NOT USING BATH TUB. STATISTICS SHOWS THAT LACK OF USE OF THESE MATS AND HANDRAILS RESULT IN SLIP AND SLIDE INCIDENT, WITH HEAD INJURY OR DEATH. SO , SHE COULDNT BUY THESE SIMPLE LIFE SAFING ITEMS, BUT WILL WASTE MONEY HAVING INSTALLING MARBLE AND TOP OF THE LINE BATHROOM. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE ARE NOT ENLIGHTNED .

SR, you av been doing very

SR, you av been doing very well but why is this your fact coming after d demise of the person?. There is need for us to do the right thing at the right time if indeed we want to have the desired change we are clamouring for.God bless Nigeria.

saharareporters did nothing

saharareporters did nothing wrong here my friends, that was part of her legacy and its a fair game, she was involved in basically bank fraud, that part of the story has to be told, you guys forget that your past follow you to your grave, so stop shooting at the messenger. She will receive a befitting burial and family and friend will singer praises and forget she put few hard working Nigerian out of work solely on her fraudulent activity at the bank. So for those who want's to listen to only praises of her you are free to attend her festival and jamboree of wake.

Death is Certain

As far as Nigerians' matter is concerned, I think it high time to said the truth about everybody ,dead or alive. There is nothing wrong about this report neither it changes anything about the person that died. If she lived her life well or not, it's between she and her creator.  

hey

What kind of a person insults the dead and wish another dead? you are very in-human. if not for her death, nobody knows she borrowed money. why state when you intend to announce her death? you know nothing of the money then and would no nothing now. lets try and be humans again pls.

HABA, SR WHAT DO YOU INTEND

HABA, SR WHAT DO YOU INTEND TO ACHIEVE BY THIS? DO YOU WANT TO INFORM US ABOUT THE DEATH OR THAT SHE TOOK A LOAN THAT WAS NOT REPAID UNTIL HER DEATH? THIS IS A CLOAK AND DAGGER REPORT.

foolish policeman

okiro please try to pay back the loan you and your fraudulent wife took before she died (is she really dead)because you are next online to die

Sahara Reporters again!

When will Sahara reporters become objective in the nature of news it feeds the public? What have the various accusations (for which I'm sure she was never convicted) got to do with the news you are trying to report. Maybe you guys should focus more on accurate reproting that just trying to be sensational 'cos you might just go the way of TNOW (The News Of the World)

Okiro's wife death

May her Soul rest in peace. Death is destined for all human. Death of this nature is most unfortunate.

condolence

IGP M M Okiro. Accept my sympathy on the dead of you beloveth wife and soulmate Mrs Hera Okiro. May the good Lord grant you all the fortitude to be her exit in Jesus name amen.Jack Yakubu Pam

She escaped Justice

Though, Hera Okiro might have escaped legal justice for the fraud she and her husband committed, her death is in a way, poetic justice. She would still face another justice in the beyond while her husband and children, who made so many innocents to become widows, orphans will continue to have misfortune befall them. They will never have rest. Neither will they know peace. They will have wailing and gnashing of teeth as their lot. Mike Okiro will live the rest of his live mourning sudden deaths of his loved ones just as he made others mourn their own innocent husbands and children. Amen

It Serve them well

All those that murdered sleep, all those that have one way or the other contributed to everyday death in our hospitals, on our roads,shall sleep no more.They shall know no peace. The blood of innocent Nigerians that died as a result of their corruption will not allow them to enjoy their ill-gotten wealth. VANITY! SHIOR!!!!!

Law of Karma applied

May her Soul NOT rest in peace. May the spirits and souls of the innocent OPC men branded and killed as armed robbers by her husband continue to haunt her in the grave. May her children never know peace and fortitude as the children of INNOCENT men and women who suffered in the hand of her husband never knew it. May all the bribes taken to compromise justice by her husband continue to be a consuming fire in Okiro and his children's lives. As Mike Okiro has caused so much sorrow and sadness in the lives and homes of innocent Nigerians during his tenure as Police Commisioner in Lagos and IG, MAY HIS CHILDREN reap such in millionfolds. Amen
