Jeff Mbah, a lawmaker representing Oji River constituency at the state house of assembly, also confirmed the commissioner’s death.

Mbah described the late Ugochukwu as “a genius whose death is a great loss to both Enugu state and Nigeria”.

“We are talking about a renowned Professor of Surgeon who has a lot to offer in turning around our health sector. It’s a terrible blow,” he said.
