Mourning his colleague, Okoro said “Roco (Ja rule) is my brother and friend since our university days. His dream was to be successful in life through his music. After our graduation, Roco went to Port Harcourt in search of his family’s betterment.


“He returned to music three years ago and later we recorded a song which he featured me in his 1st single called “ONYE NA WAY YA.”

“Last week Roco returned home from Port Harcourt and said he was going to shoot the video of our song by tomorrow, being Monday. This afternoon, the Nigerian Army killed my Roco in his home town Orlu. Roco believes in Nigeria so much and today Nigeria has failed my friend. It’s hard to believe this.”

Another musician, Uche Ndum, popularly known as Tooblac, who is a friend of the victim said “The Nigerian Army has just killed my friend, Roco in Orlu. This is so disheartening. I lack words right now.”
