The remains of veteran manufacturer Chico Ejiro, who passed away on Christmas Day 25 December 2020, will be laid to rest on 20 February.
The older brother of the deceased, who is also a veteran manufacturer, Zeb Ejiro, made the announcement in a statement released on Tuesday, January 5th.
According to the statement, Chico died late from complications due to high blood pressure.
‘His death follows complications due to high blood pressure for which he was treated. He returned wonderfully to the only venture he was so passionate about and concluded his filming barely two days before Christmas. His painful death was a tragic drama that took less than ten minutes and there was silence. ”
According to Zeb, the late Chico has devoted his entire life and resources over the past six years to ensuring the health and survival of his youngest child, who was diagnosed with cancer-related ailments while still a toddler. He said Chico’s devoted wife, Joy Ejiro, was in the US for a while to take care of their son and temporarily returned with him for the yuletide vacation after being away for two years.
