Updated: Soludo confirms death of Anambra lawmaker Okafor in South Africa



Governor Charles Soludo has confirmed the death in South Africa of the Majority Leader of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Dr. Nnamdi Okafor.

Okafor slumped at Sandton City Johannesburg, South Africa where he was attending a statutory training session of members of Anambra State House of Assembly.

The deceased represented Awka South Constituency One in the House of Assembly.

His death comes three months after the demise of another lawmaker, Okechukwu Okoye.

The governor, in a statement issued by his Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, expressed shock over the sudden death of Okafor.

“It is shocking that the State Assembly lost another lawmaker to the cold hands of death, coming barely three months after the demise of the lawmaker representing Aguata Two Constituency, Hon. Okechukwu Okoye.

“Dr. Nnamdi Okafor was an active participant at the 7th Assembly who devoted his time and energy to represent his constituency. He’ll be sorely missed.

“On behalf of Anambra State Government, may I use this medium to convey my sympathy to those he left behind, including his family, Awka Constituency One and Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Uche Okafor as well as other lawmakers.

“Indeed, life is ephemeral. May the living continue to reflect on the essence of life and live for the good of the society like Dr. Okafor did,” Soludo stated.
