His death came as a shock  to everybody. His children,  church, the community will always miss him.

He survived  by, wife, and 7 children  among them is Chukwubuike Nwimo, a Journalist who described his late dad as the best ever.

He said: It was June, 2021 at exactly 9pm that he sent for me, so he could do father’s Sunday with  all of us, which I agreed. The following  morning I woke to see plethora of missed calls from mum  and sisters who called  around 5am repeatably  .I knew  all is not well. I called to get the ugly news that the person that spoke to me around  9 pm  died  around 10pm., an hour  later. The news of his demise was heart wrenching, painful  and disappointing. It is had to describe  the multitude  of thought and emotions  that tore through my soul at that point. 

“I am yet to believe  that he is no more. He thought me to give in the best in whatever  I do  ,he thought  me determination, patience  and perseverance, he thought me how to love not hate. He thought me how to be the strength  of my brothers weakness .He deserved the best reward for his good heart but death  did not allow you  to enjoy the fruits of  your labour.

‘I missed  him so much he was a blessing to everyone  that comes  around him.
