Patrick Omeje, the Chairman of Nsukka Local Government in Enugu State, is dead . 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 Omeje and walked around the streets of Nsukka with a mock coffin.. They accused him of poor performance during his first term and advised 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..
