Former Nigerian Senator, Francis Arthur Nzeribe has passed away.
According to a source, the ex-lawmaker gave up the ghost on Sunday morning, May 8 at age 83.
Nzeribe is said to have suffered from a yet-to-be-disclosed ailment which eventually led to his demise.
The Imo State born politician died 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.
