The senator representing Anambra North Senatorial District, Stella Oduah, on Friday lost her son, after a brief illness, The Punch reports.
The son whose name is yet to be disclosed was aged 28 before he passed on at a private hospital in Abuja in the early hours of Friday.
In a phone conversation on Friday afternoon the former Minister of Aviation confirmed her son’s death.
Senator Uche Ekwunife, representing Anambra Central in the Senate, also confirmed the sad incident saying she had been with Oduah to console her over the “unfortunate situation.”
Ekwunife said, “It is very unfortunate. It has shown that death and life belong to God and it is only Him who controls our life. It is a trying moment for her and all of us. I know how it feels as a mother. It is only God who can console her.”
