Again, Labour Party Mourn As Another Top Candidate Dies
There’s mourning in Peter Obi’s Labour Party camp as a candidate for Okigwe Local Government Area of Imo State House of Assembly, Chukwunonye Irouno is reportedly dead.
The late Mr. Chukwunonye Irouno died on Monday, December 5, 2022, at his residence in Owerri.
According to the Punch, Irouno served as a senior special assistant on public affairs and entertainment to ex-governor Rochas Okorocha.
Meanwhile, a source who is close to the LP’s State House of Assembly candidate affirmed that Irouno died at night in his house in Owerri, the Imo state’s capital city.
As a popular master of ceremony, Irouno was expected to serve as the MC for Peter Obi’s rally in Owerri on Tuesday, December 6, before his sudden demise a day before the event after he and other Labour Party chieftains had finished inspecting Kanu Nwankwo sports stadium in Owerri, the venue for Obi’s campaign rally.
Speaking on the sad incident, Irouno’s friend said he passed on shortly after arriving at his Owerri residence on Monday.
“Irouno has died. He just returned to his house and asked his wife to prepare dinner for him. He went inside his bedroom to freshen up. On getting to his bed, he started behaving funny. “His children couldn’t understand his action. They went to the kitchen to call their mother. Before his wife could rush to the bedroom, he was dead. “This is unbelievable. This was a man who was supposed to take charge of the proceedings during the Labour Party presidential rally in Owerri.
Sadly, he died a few minutes after asking his wife to prepare food for him.”
