Former Vice President, Alex Ekwueme, has died. He was aged 85. The elder statesman was flown to a UK hospital last week Sunday to continue his treatment for a chest infection.

A statement from his family signed by his brother and the traditional ruler of Oko in Anambra State, Igwe Laz Ekwueme said that he died by 10:00 pm in a London clinic, Sunday.

The statement read: “Ekwueme family regrets to announce the peaceful passing away of their patriarch, the former Vice-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Dr. Alex Ifeanyichukwu Ekwueme GCON. The sad event occurred at the London Clinic at 10:00 pm on Sunday 19th November 2017.”

The former Vice President was rushed to the Memfys Neurosurgery Hospital Enugu early last month after he slumped at his residence. He went into a coma afterward. As soon as he was stabilized in the hospital he was flown to London in an air ambulance last Sunday.

May his soul rest in peace, Amen.
