Former Senator, Francis Arthur Nzeribe has passed on.
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.
Nzeribe was elected a Senator to represent Orlu in 1999.
In November 2002, a former Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim, suspended Nzeribe indefinitely over an allegation of N22 million fraud.
