Former Nigerian Senator, Chief Arthur Nzeribe is Dead.

The Imo state-born politician was declared dead at a foreign hospital following an undisclosed ailment.

The late lawmaker was 83 years old.

 

“He died this morning in a hospital abroad. The family will soon release a statement,” a source said.

 

The late Nzeribe represented Orlu in the Senate in 1999 but in November 2002, the then-Senate President Anyim Pius Anyim suspended him indefinitely over an allegation of N22 million fraud.

Reacting to his death on Twitter, Senator.Shehu Sani wrote; “Chief Arthur Nzeribe;young people may not know who he was;by the time they came of age, he had retreated to a private life. He was an unforgettable factor in our nation’s history.A controversial maverick & a man you shouldn’t bring close nor keep him afar. May his soul rest in peace.”
