The Majority Leader and the lawmaker representing Awka South Constituency I in the Anambra State House of Assembly, Nnamdi Okafor is dead.

Sources confirmed that Okafor collapsed in the early hours of August 23, 2022 at Standton City Johannesburg, South Africa and was confirmed dead hours later.

The team of the Anambra State legislators had gone to South Africa on a retreat.

Some members of the House who confirmed the death described the news as grievous and heart-breaking.

According to one of them, “the news of the death of one of the most active, vibrant, and resourceful lawmakers in the Anambra House of Assembly, Hon Nnamdi Okafor, the majority leader came to everyone as a rude shock.

“Friends and colleagues are deeply saddened and grieved by this painful and untimely exit of one of them. This is unbearable. He was a patriotic, selfless, and hardworking lawmaker who gave his best for the service of Anambra State House of Assembly, his constituents, and indeed the entire people of Anambra State.”.

The late lawmaker is also described as a peace-loving and easy-going gentleman who was admired by all.

According to friends, we just lost a bridge-builder, a man of peace, and a gentleman par-excellent. He will be sorely missed by every one of us,” they said.

Friends noted that the dedicated and selfless nature of Okafor, as well as his quality representation in the House, earned him the return ticket of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in the Awka South I State Constituency.
