Another news emerged on Thursday that the late Commissioner has risen from the dead making his family and friends going wild jubilating in Abakaliki and its environs.

The Governor of the state, David Umahi dispelled the rumour in social media that Mr Nweze did not resurrect from the dead that it was a ‘fake news’.

According to the Eagles Online, The News Agency of Nigeria reports that news of Nweze’s resurrection from the morgue of the Turkish hospital, Abuja, where he died on June 22, filtered to the state on Thursday.


Hundreds of people besieged his houses in Abakaliki and hometown, Onueke in Ezza South Local Government Area of the state, singing, dancing and making merry that God had raised him from the dead.

Workers in most government offices, traders and other segments of the public openly discussed the matter as many held the view that God raised him due to his good works.

Umahi, in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Francis Nwaze, however, debunked the report, describing it as ‘fake news’.

“People should stop spreading unverified news as it is inflicting more pains on those currently mourning.

“There was no pictorial evidence or confirmation from the hospital and we ask why people should engage in hear-say at this critical time.


“We have to accept the reality before us though the deceased’s death was difficult to swallow,” the statement read.

NAN reports that Nweze died on June 22 from injuries sustained in a ghastly motor accident along the Enugu-Abakaliki highway on June 19.

Gov. Umahi later declared June 23 as public holiday and four-day prayer and fasting session across the state in honour of the deceased.
