Ghanaian sports journalist confirmed dead following yesterday’s terror killings in Kenya.


Ghanaian sports journalist and LG Electronics employee James Oduor aka ‘Cobra’ is among those who have been confirmed dead following Tuesday’s terror attack in Nairobi, Kenya.

Cobra, who worked at LG Company in the Customer Service Department situated at 14 Riverside, was trapped inside the offices on Tuesday evening when the attacks started.

“What’s happening at 14 Riverside fam? Any news from out there?”, he posted on Twitter.

Kenya Football Federation’s Nick Mwendwa led tributes for the man described by sports journalists as a ‘ray of hope’ in Kenyan football.

“Fare thee well my friend. Your good spirit will live on in football. You did your part. We shall do ours and remember you,” Mwendwa tweeted.

Coincidentally, today would have been his birthday. He is survived by his wife and one child.
