Chijioke Ugwueze, the member representing Isi-uzo Constituency in the Enugu State House of Assembly, is dead.
This happened three days after the demise of the Chairman of Nsukka Local Government Area, Patrick Omeje.
Ugwueze was the administrator of House Committee on Transport.
Addressing the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday, the younger kin, Ejike Ugwueze, said his sibling kicked the bucket due to cardiovascular breakdown.
He said the late legislator, 49 years of age, was hypertensive and complained indications of malaria on Friday morning.
Ugwueze was hurried to a private clinic in Enugu on Friday morning and was later moved to Enugu state Teaching Hospital Parklane, where he kicked the bucket at night.
“The brother’s death was so painful and great shock to the family. He has created a big vacuum that only God can fill. He is our breadwinner.
“We, the family members, are confused on where to start from because my brother died when we are still planning on how to bury our father, who is still in the mortuary and now Chijioke has joined him”, Ejike said.
One of Ugwueze partners and member representing the Enugu East Rural Constituency, Hillary Ugwu, depicted the passing of Late Ugwueze as an ‘extraordinary misfortune’s to the seventh Assembly.
He noticed that the dead would be missed by his associates as a result of his commitments to the House.
Ugwu asked God to give Ugwueze everlasting rest.
