Lagos – One of the delegates to the just-concluded African Insurance Organisation (AIO) conference and Deputy Director General (DDG) of Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN), Mrs Uju Ndubuisi Chukwu, was on Thursday found dead in her hotel room in Johannesburg, South Africa, the third death recorded in one week in the Insurance sector.
Mrs Chukwu, who lodged at Emperor Palace Hotel, was at the closing dinner night event on Wednesday.
She was full of life before she retired to bed after the dinner.
The late DDG was scheduled to travel back to Nigeria on Thursday but she died before the journey.
CIIN President Eddie Efekoha confirmed the report and said the institute was waiting for the doctor’s report to determine the cause of her death.
Report has it that she returned to her hotel room after the dinner alongside a senior female colleague before they separated and went into their different rooms.
It was also learnt that the colleague knocked on Mrs Chukwu’s hotel room door the following morning, calling her out for breakfast but she did not answer.
The colleague reportedly left, thinking she was still sleeping.
After the breakfast, her colleague again knocked on her door but without getting a response.
When it was time to go to the airport to catch their flight, Mrs Chukwu’s colleague again knocked and called her on her phone, yet there was no response.
The colleague felt Mrs Chukwu had gone to the airport to check in early.
When she got to the airport and did not find her, she hurried back to the hotel, called her number and found that the phone was ringing in her room.
The colleague then raised the alarm and called the attention of the hotel management.
The door to her hotel room was forced open and Mrs Chukwu was found dead on the bed.
Her body was said to be at the mortuary when our correspondent made inquiries about her last night.
Recall that the past one week has been a sad moment for the institute particularly and the entire insurance industry following the death of
Chief Ladipo Bailey, past president of the CIIN and former Commissioner for Insurance, National Insurance Commission (NAICOM) and Prof Olorunfunmi Adeyemi, former Director General of the Nigerian Insurers Association (NIA).

Arsenal complete David Luiz transfer from Chelsea

Arsenal have completed the signing of David Luiz from Chelsea in an £8million deal.

The Brazilian defender has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Gunners after he expressed his desire to move across London.

Luiz only penned a new two-year contract at Stamford Bridge earlier this year, having impressed under Maurizio Sarri last
term.

But after being an unused substitute in last weekend’s final pre-season friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach, he feared being only a bit-part player under new boss Frank
Lampard.

Thus, after issues at the club’s Cobham training base earlier this week, Lampard gave the green light to letting Luiz depart.

Luiz did not train with the Chelsea first team on Wednesday before he finalised his move across London.

He will wear the Jersey number 23 for the upcoming season.

Everton Confirm Capture of Arsenal Winger Alex Iwobi on 5-Year Deal


Everton have confirmed the signing of Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi on a five-year deal, after the Nigeria international agreed personal terms with the club.

Iwobi, who rose through the youth ranks at the Emirates and joined the first team squad in 2015, played 149 times for the Gunners, scoring 15 goals and contributing 27 assists largely from the flank.

And, in a statement on their official ​website, the Merseyside club confirmed: “Alex Iwobi has signed for Everton from Arsenal for an undisclosed fee after agreeing a five-year deal until the end of June 2024.
“Meanwhile, Everton boss Marco Silva explained: “Alex was one of our main targets for this window and I believe he is a fantastic signing for Everton. He is a direct and skilful winger and attacking midfielder who always works very hard for his team.

“He is still young but already with a lot of top-level experience – 100 Premier League matches, more in Europe and many international games.

“It was important for me to have one more quality option for our attacking positions to add to what we have with Richarlison, Bernard and Theo Walcott.
