His death was confirmed by the Speaker of the Assembly, Peter Azi, to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Azi said:

“This is a monumental loss not only to his family, constituency, this Assembly, but the entire state. I was informed of his ill-health, I went to see him at the hospital last night and he was looking better.”
