Pharoah Okadigbo died in an auto crash in Abuja
Mr. Pharoah Okadigbo who graduated from the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) was the first son of the late Senator Chuba Okadigbo. His father was a renowned and popular politician who climbed to the position of Senate President during Obasanjo’s regime.’
He was however impeached. His political career became even more popular when he took the mase of the Senate to his hometown, Ogbunike, and hid it in the Ogbunike cave.
Chuba Okadigbo died mysteriously following a controversial cum tear-gassing political rally saga. He was said to be asthmatic hence he did not survive the choking of the tear gas by the Nigeria police force.
The date of the late Pharoah Chuba Okadigbo is yet to be fixed by the family. RIP Pharoah.
