The statement said the state had lost a pearl in Nwobosi, describing him as an embodiment of principle, loyalty, self – denial and service.

The tribute read in part,”Despite suffering a mortar injury that affected his spinal cord during the Nigerian Civil War, he remained loyal to the Biafran leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu- Ojukwu to the end.

“Governor Willie Obiano held Nwobosi in such high esteem that he immediately paid the family a condolence visit in the Obosi homestead in Idemili North Local Government Area once the death was announced.”
