Omeje’s death was announced on the wee hours of Tuesday.
Though the cause of his death remains sketchy but he reportedly fell ill last week with a source saying that he had pneumonia
Omeje was re-elected alongside two other Local Government chairmen on March 1, 2020.
During his return bid, he faced strictest opposition
They accused him of poor performance during his first term and advised Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi not to consider him for re-election.
Sometime in January, Youth from his Local Government protested and walked around the street parading an open coffin to demonstrate their vexation
The demonstration which took off at Opi Junction, was intercepted and the coffin seized by the police.
