A former governor of Abia State and chieftain of the All progressives Congress, APC, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu is reportedly dead, World News Cable reports.
According to the report by the news website, Kalu died few weeks ago after a surgery in Germany.
Part of the report from the news outlet reads:
“Kalu who had a short recovery after sliding into coma, died few days later, a hospital source informed our correspondent.
The death which has also been confirmed by one of Kalu’s close aides who traveled with him to Germany, is being closely guarded by his family.
The aide, who pleaded anonymity because he is not authorized to speak on the matter also informed our correspondent that Kalu’s family has concluded a sinister plot to present an impostor to Nigerians and the world as the original Kalu.
“A lookalike has been contracted to impersonate Kalu for political reason”
“For those of you who are saying that Orji Kalu has returned back from his medical trip in Germany, this is fatal lie , Dr Orji Uzor Kalu died on a life support machine few days after the surgery”
“The man you see today or that will be parading himself as Orji Kalu is an impostor and not the real Orji Kalu, please disregard all rumors that he is back.”
“That was the reason why the impostor couldn’t attend Reverend Mbaka’s event, because the family are trying to limit his exposure to the public for now until he (the impostor) has completely mastered his lines and roles.”
“The man parading himself as Dr Orji Uzor Kalu is one George from Gambia, when you take a closer look at Dr Orji Kalu’s last seen picture at the hospital and that of the man parading himself today as OUK , you will see the difference from his size , skin color and ascent.”
“Friends and well wishers who claim to have been in contact with him have been deceived into believing it is him not knowing he is not the real Orji Kalu.”
“I know this thing will not last because one day, the people will definitely find out the real truth, but The big question now is , HOW LONG ARE WE GOING TO BE DECEIVED?”
“Instead of the family to mourn their loss and our loss, they decided to play politics with his death, I weep for my boss because I know he will be weeping wherever he is now because he will never approve of this scam.”
“If Senator Mao Ohuabunwa and all those who were threatened by his emergence as APC Senatorial candidate in Abia North had a hand in this, it’s sad and unfortunate that they succeeded, but God will judge all of them.” he concluded.
What a great loss to the Abia State APC, People of Abia state, Nigeria and the world at large.”
