Ex-Globacom Director, Okon Iyanam Assassinated


A former director of Globacom Nig Ltd, Okon Iyanam is dead. Okon was assassinated at his newly opened Heritage Hotels and Resorts in Mowe, Ogun State on Monday night.

Though the news was kept under wraps, his elder brother, Victor Iyanam broke the news this morning in a statement.

Late Iyanam contested for the governorship ticket of the Accord Party for the 2015 election in Akwa Ibom. The statement below…


“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the tragic death of my brother, Okon, in the early hours of Wednesday, 27th June, 2018.

“Okon papa had just recently opened his new Heritage Hotels and Resorts in Mowe, Ogun State where he spent most of his time trying to stabilize the management and sales techniques.

While a birthday party was going on in the hotel, some men, suspected to be either armed robbers or hired assassins crashed into the place at about 12.30 a.m. with sporadic gun shots.

“They asked for the owner. When he was eventually identified, he was shot at close range in the neck region. He stood no chance. He died instantly.

“The Police first Responders then deposited his body in a Morgue.

“I rushed to Lagos upon the information delivered to me and confirmed for myself, the level of wickedness anybody could deliver to a man whose only crime was working hard for his livelihood,” the brother said.
