The deceased’s wife, Ossei, who was also a contestant on the now rested TV show sponsored by Nigerian Breweries, was not at home when the attack occur as she is said to live in the United States.
Report has it that hector’s wife, Ossei was shocked over the news of her husband’s death.
However, all efforts to reach her by Celeb Police has been proved abortive as she’s not picking her calls.
According to a family friend, Ossei is heavily pregnant and the late Hector had returned to Nigeria only to renew his visa.
“He called me when he returned last month and said he was home to renew his visa. He was to leave for the US soon because he was worried about his pregnant wife, and daughter, Zoe who would clock three years soon.”
The family friend who craved anonymity added that, “The news of his death is a shock to us all. Hector was very generous and willing to help. Though he had some businesses he was doing in the country but not a shady guy. Why should anyone want him dead? They said the gunmen were asking for Hector and shot him in the heart. This is not robbery, its sheer assassination.”
