Just as the respected Senator was trying to recover from the sudden deaths of his brother-in-law, his father-in-law followed suit, just as the tears from these unfortunate deaths are still drying up, Chief Ararume got bereaved the more, with the death of one of his closest political allies and the Director-general of his Campaign Organization. Hon. Independence Ogunewe, a frontline politician from Mbaise died mysteriously yesterday in his Abuja residence, according to media reports.

Late Hon. Independence Ogunewe who represented Ahiazu/Ezinihitte Mbaise Federal Constituency on two occasions. He was reportedly found stone dead in his bathroom in the early hours of yesterday.

We pray that God gives him, the members of his immediate family and all members of his Campaign Organization, the fortitude to bear these unfortunate losses.
