A former Nigerian Senator, Francis Nzeribe has passed on.
According to reports, Nzeribe died on Sunday, May 8 at 83i in a hospital outside Nigeria.
Nzeribe was a Senator for the Oguta Senatorial constituency in Imo State from October 1983 to December 1983 and May 1999 to May 2007 on the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) platform.
In November 2002, Senate President Anyim Pius Anyim indefinitely suspended Senator Nzeribe due to an allegation of a N22 million fraud.
In April 2006, the Orlu People’s Consultative Assembly, sponsored by the then Governor of Imo State, Achike Udenwa, staged what it called a “One million march” to drum support for Nzeribe’ s recall from the Senate.
