There was serious confusion in Abakaliki following the purported resurrection of the late Engr Nweze, the commissioner for infrastructure development in Ebonyi state just after a day the Governor of the state declared a public holiday in his honour.



The rumour caused serious celebration and confusion in Abakaliki as family members, friends, political associates and well-wishers of the late politician thronged his Abakaliki residence in celebration.

A video yesterday afternoon shows that over five hundred people including youths, women and some political leaders from his Ezza clan thronged his Ezza road residence chanting songs of victory and celebration that the Commissioner had resurrected.

But in a reaction, the Special Assistant to Governor David Umahi on Media and Publicity, Francis Nwaze, described the resurrection rumour as fake.

He said “People should stop spreading news that is not verified, it is inflicting more pain on those that are currently mourning.

‘No picture evidence, no confirmation from the hospital or mortuary, why on earth should we engage in hearsay at this critical time?

“The state is still in a mourning mood.

“Though it is a very hard pill to swallow we have to accept the reality before us”

As of the time of filing this report, discussions about the death of the Commissioner and his purported resurrection are currently ongoing among politicians, academics, journalists, drivers, mechanics, students, traders among others in the State.
