Our Mighty Iroko Has Fallen: Nzeribe Royal Family Speaks, Pleads For Privacy On Death Of Senator Arthur Nzeribe

The family of late Senator Francis Arthur Uzoma Nzeribe on Sunday spoke on his death, saying that traditional consultation has begun for the funeral rites of the late business mogul and political icon.

They spoke in an official statement titled “Our mighty Iroko has fallen: Sen. Chief Francis Arthur Nzeribe is dead” and jointly signed by Messrs Ojiabu Francis Nzeribe, Anthony Akpati Nzeribe, and Ojiabu Oliver Nzeribe, for and on behalf of the Nzeribe Royal family.

The statement reads in part: “The Nzeribe Royal family of Umudei royal village of Oguta in Oguta Local Government Area of Imo State in total submission to the will of God Almighty and in appreciation of a remarkably worthy life hereby announces the death of our son, cousin, uncle, husband, father and grandfather, Distinguished Sen. Francis Arthur Uzoma Nzeribe.

“While we are pained by this loss, we are proud of the African legend who distinguished himself in various fields including sports, international business, and politics and gave the Nzeribe clan worldwide acclaim.

“The family has immediately commenced the necessary traditional consultation and will in due course release a program for his funeral rites.”

The family appealed to the public to respect the privacy of the family and the solemnity of the event to enable them to grieve in peace.

Until his death, the late Nzeribe held the traditional titles of Ogbuagu, Oshiji, and Demanze Oyimba of Oguta, among others.

The deceased represented Orlu Senatorial District from October to December 1993 in the second republic for the Nigeria Peoples Party (NPP).

In the third republic, late Nzeribe represented Imo West at the Senate between 1999 and 2007 on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
