The oil and gas magnate who was visiting Nigeria from his base in Sugar Land, Houston, Texas, was discovered dead in his hotel room in Ikoyi, Lagos in the evening of Sunday June 9, 2024.

According to The Street Journal, Onyejekwe was in town for some business meetings and in between the meetings, retired to his hotel room for a short rest only to end up dead mysteriously.

Sources revealed that he was in Nigeria for meetings regarding an oil and gas company he purchased about four years ago, and had put plans in motion to move back to Nigeria in the not too distant future, reportedly to fully take over the running of the company personally, after allegedly discovering some shady dealings being perpetuated by those he put in charge of the company.

He was only 51 years old.

His wife and a family friend are said to be on their way to Lagos to return his corpse to Houston for burial.

Just before flying down to Nigeria, he hosted his annual Over The Counter, OTC party in Houston, Texas.

From Onitsha, Anambra State, he was the President, Bits and Drilling Tools, a product line with executive leadership, global strategy, technology portfolio and business management of one of the fastest growing business units in Schlumberger.

Under his leadership, several game changing Bits and Drilling technology were launched which is intended to provide the oil and gas industry with reduced driving cost by improving rate of penetration.

Until his death, he was the Global Director, Sales and Commercial for the Reservoir and Infrastructure group for Schlumberger.
