Prof. Uche Ikonne, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for governor of Abia State, has passed away.
His son, Dr. Uche Ikonne, revealed this in a statement on Wednesday.
“I grieve to inform the passing of my loving father, Prof. Eleazar Uchenna Ikonne, who passed away at the National Hospital Abuja today, January 25, at about 4 am, following a brief illness,” the message said.
He was recuperating after receiving the right care in the United Kingdom, but a few days ago, he relapsed, resulting in many cardiac arrests from which he did not survive.
After family discussions and meetings, “more details and preparations would be made known to the public.”
