The Ward 9 Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State, Mr. Vincent Okokoje has slumped and died.
He reportedly died on Thursday morning.
APC Ward 12 Chairman, Comrade Gabriel Omorere confirmed the report.
He said, “we attended a meeting together at the residence of an APC leader in Warri South, Chief Ojogri on Wednesday, along Warri/Sapele road. We only got the news that he died on Thursday morning.”
Omorere said the death of Okokoje came as a shock to the APC in Warri South and Delta State in general.
He said the late Okokoje was a gentleman who loved making peace among his colleagues.
According to Omorere, “He was amongst the three Ward Chairmen who won their wards in the just concluded election in Warri South Constituency II.”
Omorere, who led a delegation of APC Chairmen in Warri South in a condolence visit to the wife, children and family of Okokoje said he will be greatly missed.
He stressed that his departure had caused a very big vacuum within the APC in Warri South, saying, “I pray we have someone like him to work hard and move the party forward.”
