Abe, in a statement described the death of the late Nwakaudu as painful and a great loss to the governor and the Nwakaudu’s family.

His demise at the prime of life is tragic indeed and it is times like this that test our common humanity.
I pray that God Almighty will grant his soul eternal rest and give comfort to his family”.
