Member representing Aba North/South Federal Constituency, Hon. Ossy Prestige has passed on, report says.
He was said to have died in Frankfurt Teaching Hospital, Germany after a protracted illness.
Reliable sources told Newsmen that he was brought in from London when his health deteriorated.
Hon. Prestige was first elected into Nigeria’s House of Representatives where he served between 2015-2019 under the platform of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).
Against fierce electoral contestation, he secured his re-election in 2019 as the lone Abia elected federal lawmaker on the APGA platform to serve in the ninth National Assembly.
He went ahead to defeat Mr Uzo Azubuike of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Mr Mascot Uzor-Kalu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who had separately approached the tribunal to nullify Prestige’s election.
All efforts to reach family members for a comment on the development proved abortive.
