Dapo Ojora, Lagos socialite and brother in-law to ex-Senate President, Bukola Saraki, allegedly commits suicide in Lagos

Dapo Ojora, a socialite and one of the sons of billionaire businessman and board room guru, Otunba Adekunle Ojora and his wife, Erelu Ojuolape Ojora, has died. 

Late Dapo allegedly shot himself in the head at his home in Ikoyi, Lagos state on Friday evening, December 11. The deceased is a brother-in-law to former Senate President, Bukola Saraki. Saraki married Dapo’s younger sister, Toyin Saraki, nee Ojora.


Dapo Ojora separated from his wife, Patricia, a trained lawyer, and an entrepreneur in 2019. Family sources claim his marital woes took a heavy toll on him. But nobody knows why he took his life so suddenly last night.

Just last year, he and his wife put their differences aside when they both hosted the creme of Lagos society to their daughter, Tara’s wedding to her beau, Folajimi Ayodeji, in Ikoyi, Lagos.

Nine years ago, the Ojora family was thrown into mourning following the demise of the Dapo’s older brother and scion of their family, Gboyega Ojora, fondly referred to as Gbegi. Aged 50, Gbegi died of a heart attack at First Consultant Hospital, Ikoyi. He left behind a wife, Solveigh Omosalewa, and a son, Toluwani.
