Meanwhile, the Nigerian daily that broke the news, quoted Okorocha as confirming the death of Uwajumogu to reporters at the Senate on Wednesday.

However, in a quick response to the publication, Okorocha who wrote on Twitter denied speaking with the newspaper, while asking the platform to take down the news.

He wrote;

I am utterly shocked that a platform like @TheNationNews would go to the extent of putting my name behind such falsehood in the bid to break news.

Let me reiterate that I didn’t speak to journalists regarding the news making rounds about the passing of Senator Ben Uwajumogu

I demand that @TheNationNews take down this news piece as it is false and completely misleading.

One would expect better from such a platform.
