Former Nigerian Senator, Chief Arthur Nzeribe is Dead.

According to reports Arthur Nzeribe, a political strongman from Imo state was declared dead at a foreign hospital following an undisclosed ailment.

“He died this morning in a hospital abroad. The family will soon release a statement,” the 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, Senator representing Kaduna, 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.“May his soul rest in peace.”
