Benue health commissioner Emmanuel Ikwulono dies after surgery

Benue State Commissioner for Health Dr Emmanuel Ikwulono has passed on, sources in the Government House have said.

It was gathered that Ikwulono died as a result of complications from surgery.

“He attended the last state executive council meeting last week and subsequently went for the surgery. His death came as a rude shock this evening,” one of the sources told the news media.

Ikwulono was sworn in on August 5 to replace Dr Sunday Ongbabo who voluntarily resigned his appointment a week earlier.
