68-year-old Sam Inokoba is said to have died on Wednesday, September 2, 2015, in Lagos
The former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State, Sam Inokoba is dead.
68-year-old Inokoba is said to have died on Wednesday, September 2, 2015, in Lagos, according to The Nation.
The cause of his death is still in doubt as while some reports claim he died of food poisoning, others say he had a heart attack.
Fears as to the state of Inokoba’s health had earlier arisen after he allegedly slumped during a town hall meeting in Nembe, Bayelsa State on August 22.
The former PDP chairman defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) about two weeks ago and had plans of contesting the December 5 governorship elections in the state on the ruling party’s platform.
His corpse has reportedly been deposited at the the Military Cantonment Hospital in Ikeja, Lagos.
