There was confusion on Monday over the reported death of a member of the House of Representatives representing Abia State, Hon. Ossy Prestige, in a German hospital.
Prestige (APGA, Abia) who has been in hospital recieving treatment for an undisclosed ailment since October 2020, was reported to have died.
But family sources quoted the wife as saying that the lawmaker was in an intensive care unit in the hospital as at Sunday and could not confirm the reported death.
The source said: “Not true. My committee clerk just spoke with his wife who confirmed that he is in ICU. Just called her, she said he is getting better but still not responding to his WhatsApp call.”
Another source quoted a staff of his office in Abba as saying the lawmaker was still alive but undergoing treatment for cancer.
House Spokesman, Hon. Benjamin Kalu did not pick his calls at the time of this report.
