Senator Arthur Nzeribe Is Dead


Senator Francis Arthur Nzeribe, the Oguta-born maverick Second Republic politician, is dead.

Nzeribe died at the age of 83 on Sunday morning.

The former lawmaker died of an undisclosed ailment at a foreign hospital.

“He died this morning in a hospital abroad. The family will soon release a statement,” a family source told Sahara Reporters.


In 2017, the photograph of an aged 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.
