Patrick Omeje, the Chairman of Nsukka Local Government in Enugu State, is dead.
According to reports from the south-east state, Omeje passed away in the early hours of Tuesday after a brief illness.
Omeje was one of three former LG chairmen re-elected on March 1, 2020, though he faced heavy opposition during his return bid.
In January, several youths protested against Omeje and walked around the streets of Nsukka with a mock coffin.
They accused him of poor performance during his first term and advised Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi not to consider him for re-election.
He however got re-elected, and only served a couple months before his passing.
