Dr. Ifeanyi Nwobodo jnr, First Son of the former governor of old Anambra state, Senator Jim Nwobodo, reportedly died of cancer.
Nwobodo jnr died at Niger Foundation hospital Enugu, on Friday after he had come back from Huston Texas USA where he had received treatment for cancer.
He was said to have complained of having pains on his leg and met a senior oncologist with the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, UNTH, Enugu, after which he died of complications from medication.
The father, Senator Nwobodo, while narrating the ordeal of his late son to Governor Martin Elechi of Ebonyi state who paid him a condolence visit, Sunday, said that Nwodobo jnr was taken to the best cancer treatment hospital in USA where he stayed for five months and was discharged before he returned to Nigeria recently.
Senator Nwobodo said that the family had even gone for church thanksgiving service in his home country Amaechi Awkwunanu two weeks ago and that all was well before the abrupt pain on his leg that led to his demise last Friday.
Governor Elechi condoled with the Nwobodo family and prayed God to grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
Dr, Nwododor, a trained medical doctor served as a Commissioner for Science and Technology under the Chimaroke Nnamani administration and until his death a member of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital management board. He was married with children.
