The Chairman of the defunct Sosoliso Airline, Chief Victor Ikwuemesi, has died of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in London, United Kingdom.
Naija News reports that the family sources and associates confirmed the Sosoliso airline Chairman died on Monday, April 14 few days after he was diagnosed with coronavirus.
A source close to the family disclosed that Ikwuemesi was admitted into an unnamed London hospital after a brief illness.
It was learnt that the Sosoliso airline Chairman later tested positive for COVID-19 in the result that was released on Tuesday. He was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) on oxygen since he arrived at the London hospital.
“But, when the oxygen was removed for him to eat he couldn’t breathe on his own.
“So they put him on a ventilator and he died shortly after,” the source disclosed.
The Sosoliso airline Chairman son and the Managing Director of the defunct airline, Oscar Ikwuemesi, is in the United States as there are no international commercial flights operating globally.
Meanwhile, Naija News reports that Sosoliso, which was based in Enugu, Southeast Nigeria, started operation in July 2000.
