Ex-military gov, Ndubuisi Kanu, dies at 77

Kanu’s associate and ally, Mrs Joe Okei-Odumakin, confirmed this to The PUNCH on Wednesday.

“I can confirm that he has passed on. This is very sad news. A statement will be issued soon,” she said.

The cause of his death could not be immediately confirmed.

Kanu, who was appointed into the Supreme Military Council headed by the late Head of State, Gen. Murtala Muhammed in 1975, later became a human rights activist after leaving the military.

He joined the pro-democracy movement, NADECO, and played a leading role in the agitation for the actualisation of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election.
