A US-based Nigerian medical doctor has shot his wife try strangling his sons and thereafter turned the gun on himself.

The incident happened in Texas, Saturday morning.

The couple whose wife is a nurse is blessed with three children.

No one could tell the reason for his action,

At sunrise, this cold Saturday, Dr Ben Okigbo, a medical doctor in Houston, pulled up a handgun and fatally shot his wife. His wife was a nurse too. A few seconds later he turned the gun on himself. These hours their three children are dealing with the tragedy of losing their parents at home. We will never know why Dr Okigbo, decided to kill his wife and commit suicide thereafter.

It’s my understanding that Dr Okigbo was originally from *Idumuje Unor* while his wife was from *Akwukwu Igbo*, both towns are in the Delta State of Nigeria. This is a developing story.

“Someone in the house called 9-1-1 Friday morning around 10 a.m. from home in the 1500 block of Brookstone Lane. When officers arrived, they found the couple’s bodies inside. They were both in their 50s.

“A neighbour said they were originally from Nigeria but 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 police said.
