The Imos State government has officially announced the death of the national president of the Igbo Social political group; Onahaeze Ndigbo, Prof George Obiozor.



The icon does at the age of 91 after a brief illness.

This was made known by press statement by the governor, the governor says:

On behalf of the Government and people of Imo State, I, Senator Hope Uzodimma, the Executive Governor of Imo State, sorrowfuly announce the passage of a great Son of Imo State and Nigeria, the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, worldwide, Prof George OBIOZOR.

A renowned academic, an exceptional diplomat, a statesman and a tenacious patriot, Prof George Obiozor passed on recently after a brief illness.

The death of this foremost Igbo leader and former NIGERIA'S ambassador to the United States and the State of Israel is a big loss to Imo State, the South East and the entire Nigeria. I have no doubt that both Nigeria and the international community will miss his profound intellectual contributions and wise counsel on national and global issues.

His burial arrangements will be announced in due course by the family
