The Monarch and his wife died following the trauma that followed the unprovoked invasion and brutal attack on their Palace by the Nigeria Army code-named Operation Python Dance where 27 armless Biafran youths where brutally murdered in cold blood on the orders of Major General Mohammad Buhari the tyrant ruler of Nigeria. The mission of the Nigeria Army was to assassinate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra in an attempt to put a stop to the agitation of the Biafra Restoration as championed by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB.
The Monarch and his Queen could not stomach the brutal killing of children in and outside their Palace as they consequently took ill and never recovered from the trauma. The King and his queen were known as a very peaceful, kind and loving couple during their lifetime, no wonder they were buried on a Valentine Day.
