Nigerian Lawyer Killed In Oakland University Shooting

A Nigerian lawyer has been identified as one of those killed at Oikos University, Oakland, California, when a lone gunman opened fire on students and teachers Monday inside the small Christian University located in East Oakland.

Late Doris Chibuko


Doris Chibuko, 40, was studying for a nursing degree at the university and was just two months away to her graduation when she was killed by One (pronounced oh-knee) Goh, a disturbed former nursing student at the university, who later turned himself in to authorities at a Safeway superstore located at the South Shore Centre in Alameda.


Doris had worked as a lawyer in Nigeria and had moved to the US in 2002 with her husband, Efanye after their marriage the same year. They had three kids together — 3, 5, and 8, according to friends of the family.


Several Nigerians resident in the Bay Area trooped to the Chibuko family home located in San Leandro Hills to commiserate with the family Tuesday evening after news filtered out that she had been killed in the deadly mass shooting regarded as Oakland’s worst in over 20 years.


The Alameda County Coroner’s Office announced Tuesday morning that other dead victims hailed from Korea, Nepal, the United States and the Philippines.


The identities of six of the victims were release. The identity of the seventh is being withheld until the victim’s next of kin is located and informed of the death, according to the Coroner’s office.


The dead include:

Judith O. Seymore, 53, San Jose
Lydia H. Sim, 21, Hayward
SonamChodon, 33,  El Cerrito
Kim G. Eunhea, 23, Union City
Doris Chibuko, 40, San Leandro
TsheringButia, 38, San Francisco

Goh is still being held by the Police.
