Senator Arthur Nzeribe dies at 83

Oguta-born maverick Second Republic politician, Senator Francis Arthur Nzeribe, is dead. (Read More Here).

He was aged 83.

A reliable source close to the family who spoke to The PUNCH Sunday afternoon on the condition of anonymity said the flamboyant politician died in a foreign hospital.

In 2017, the photograph of ageing and possibly sick Nzeribe, sitting languidly, with medics around him went viral on social media.

He was elected a Senator to represent Orlu first in 1999 but in November 2002, the then-Senate President Anyim Pius Anyim suspended Nzeribe indefinitely over an allegation of N22 million fraud. 

Also, 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. Due to popular demand, in December 2006, Nzeribe was defeated by Osita Izunaso during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primaries for the 2007 Senatorial election.
