Respected and renowned filmmaker, Teco Benson, is bereaved.
YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine exclusively gathered that he just lost his father-in-law, Chief (Sir) Gilbert Emodi Molokwu.
Aged 65, the Onitsha, Anambra State-based businessman was said to have died sometime in June. His burial has , however, been fixed for August 23, 2019, in Ozubulu, Anambra State.
Popularly known as Oluo Olie and Ichie Akuluouno, Teco’s wife, Uju, is his second daughter.
In a brief chat with us, Teco and Uju told us that they have too many fond memories of the man. “We are surely going to miss him; in fact, we have started missing him already. Such a nice man, such a doting father and grandfather; such a wonderful husband. A good brother to his siblings and a dependable friend to all those whose paths collided with his. But who are we to question God? The Lord gave him to us, the same Lord has also invited him home. Our solace, however, is that he is resting at the right hand of his Lord, whom he served diligently, and culminated in his being made a Knight of the church. Adieu, ezigbo nna.”
