The Chairman of Nsukka Local Government in Enugu State, Patrick Omeje is dead
Patrick Omeje passed away in the early hours of Tuesday.
The cause of death of the local council boss is still unknown but he reportedly fell ill last week.
A source hinted that he had pneumonia.
The deceased was among the three former LG chairmen re-elected on March 1, 2020.
However, he faced heavy opposition during his return bid.
In January, several youths protested against Patrick Omeje and walked around the streets of Nsukka with a mock coffin.
They accused him of poor performance during his first term and advised the Enugu state Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi not to consider him for re-election.
The demonstration took off at Opi Junction, where they paraded the coffin before it was seized by the police.
