Oronto Douglas R.I.P

A top presidential aide and confidant of President Goodluck Jonathan, Oronto Douglas, has passed away.

According to Sahara Reporters, Douglas died early on Thursday morning at the State House Clinic.

An unnamed source told newsmen that Douglas had been ill for several years and died from cancer-related complications.

A lawyer by profession, Douglas rose to prominence as an environmental activist on behalf of the oil-producing communities of the Niger Delta.

He was born in 1966, and is survived by his wife and children.

Notable personalities including TY Bello, Omoni Oboli, Tunde Leye, and Adaure Achumba have expressed their condolences on social media:

      What is so idiotic about it. The truth is bitter but that’s the reality in this country. He reality may not be yours, but she is entitled to her opinion. How many ppl have died in Nigeria due to lack of care at the hands of govt looters?

      speak no ill of the dead. leave judgment to God.
      he that is without sin, be the first to cast a stone.
      death is final. that should not be your concern. a simple RIP would be perfect.

    Many of you are praising him because you had part of the loot.So what is good in looting public treasury.Will you say Oronto Douglas did good to many with stolen money & wealth?

      April 9, 2015 at 4:59 pm

      So Obasanjo, Fashola, Tinubu, Jega and the rest has not stolen government money abi…..its only PDP……Even your new president has never stolen abi……..its a shame. All politicans from both APC and PDP are thieves so don’t exempt any of them

    Rest in peace Oronto, cancer too you away so soon but your goodwill will forever remain in the heart of millions. You worked hard despite illness knocking you down and you did anything possible to fight it but God has the final say, sleep well/tight Oronto.

    Please keep mum and stop giving yourself away, there is something about you so creepy yet can point a finger at it, you act so dodgy. How is Oronto a patron to nollywood ? Friend ni friend ko. He is a contributor to nollywood actresses financial empowerment because you lot share yourselves to him like crazy.
    Oronto is a chronic womaniser / like anything on skirt but a giver and will give any amount to put smile on a female face.
    Omoni find something productive to do with your time….i begin to dislike you when I start nursing the ideal of you selling the future of your lovely boys because of money, running from Abuja to asaba for political campaign or anywhere the outcome will be income weather it good or bad. We know you have to Hustle to put food on the table for your family but do somethings codedly my dear. Too many women hustle and on their grind but nobody hear their voice or life stories on social media and that to me is the definition of maturity .Enough said!

    @ Anonymous I hear you una mama peace collapsed when she heard that Buhari is the winner,since then she has not returned to Aso villa, she is now is Okrika preparing to escape through Okrika creek to escape imprisoning.For your information Oronto Douglas or what you call his name died of the fear of Buhari while Diezani Alison-Madueke has just escaped to UK to avoid been arrested for corruption.TO YOU ALL, MANY PEOPLE WILL STILL DIE LIKE THIS & MANY WILL WANT TO ESCAPE FROM THE COUNTRY.HOWEVER ANYWHERE OUR MONEY IS WE WILL RECOVER IT ALL FROM ROGUES LIKE ORONTO DOUGLAS EVEN IN THE GRAVE AND ALL THE NOLLYWOOD ACCOMPLISH SHOULD BE READY TO REFUND THE MONEY JONATHAN GAVE THEM FOR ASO ROCK ENTERTAINMENT

    @ Ruth Oronto refused to help her because the sick lady is not one of the nollywood NUDISTS and PORNISTS that display their dirty,filthy bodies at Aso rock for entertainment.EVEN THAT OLD WOMAN ONYEKA ONWENU IS NOT LEFT OUT.

      Get a grip fella! You are hiding under an alias, and so you think it’s ok to type whatever comes to mind, which undoubtedly is based on hearsay. For all anyone knows, you are worse than they are, it’s not your place to judge. All the bitterness you are harboring is for what? The dude is dead. Free yourself!

    @intergity.. Any girl/lady/woman that knows what up, knows Mr D as he is fondly called.
    Omoni is not crying for the lost but for the money she is losing .
    Aso rock doors is close for her and them”.. Her friend Emmanuel is leaving governorship race so her source of income is reducing…
    Let her pray iffy okokwa wins the governorship in delta state then she can continue her hustling….in her second home, Government house in Asaba.

    April 9, 2015 at 4:05 pm

    @ JD It beats my imagination at the way human sympathy has been ruptured over PDP and APC supporting

    I don’t not need to investigate that JD is APC therefore all PDP are thieves.

    Thank God that as at today those people you branded thieves in PDP are now in APC and so surprised you have WHITEWASHED them.

    Oronto Douglass was in PDP so he was a thief.

    and Tinubu,Ikuforiji,Atiku,Amechi,Obasanjo,Oyegun are in APC and so they are saints…..

    How does your conscience interprete these scenario if you have one?

    Seems some people now preach for all PDP member have sinned and come short of the glory of God………

    Fear God dearie, no one dies smiling…… 50 cents said “death can not be easy if life is hard”……

    Oronto Douglass May God be merciful on you as you journey alone to meet your maker.

    @ JD take timeooo am sure you are a chorister and you are here sinning because of politics.

    Love your neighbour as your self

    WOW at some of the comments! Oronto Douglas was actually one of the few good men around GEJ. advocated hard for the protection of the Niger delta environment pre- GEJ and was one of the lawyers who defended Ken Saro- Wiwa and his Ogoni comrades. May he rest in peace. and when we all die, may people who never knew what we stood for or who we were spew unwarranted bile. Thank God, God is not a man. we will all return to dust someday. shalom.

      He may have started off as a good “environmentalist”, but he undoubtedly turned out to be one of the worst ever “apparatchiks” in govt. But that’s a story for a different time. May his soul RIP

    Rest in peace.

    I remember the helicopter crash that killed Governor Yakowa and General Azazi. It was when they were leaving Bayelsa after his father’s burial. I wondered at his clout because of all the people who attended.

    Life and death are in the hands of God.

    He will get a lot of plaudits because he was generous especially to his Nollywood mistresses. Two of them are the ones who are always praised online for being coded and classy.

    @nene am not a politician neither do i have any1 of them as a relative or friend.For this reason I can never be mentally,psychologically,spiritually & physically be enslaved by the politicians just like what you have subjected yourself into. I only pity GEJ bcos Oronto is the custodian of his loots,now that he is gone.SORRY,He GEJ may end up as Canoe carver while Her fellow widows may end selling her Ogogoro,siga in Ikpokri .
