Immediate past Governor of Enugu State, Barrister Sullivan Chime, is still very much alive, multiple sources from Enugu have informed News Express.
The sources dismissed the rumour making the rounds in the state that Chime has died of an undisclosed ailment.
The rumour of Chime’s purported death had been amplified at 6:10 p.m. on Saturday by a prominent Enugu youth leader who made the following WhatsApp broadcast: “Breaking! Former Governor of Enugu State, Barrister Sullivan Chime, is dead.” He did not provide further details.
News Express made efforts to confirm the information. While a Government House source said it was true, a Chime family member said the former governor had been sick but that he could not confirm his death.
News Express reports that Chime battled ill health for a good part of his eight years as Enugu Governor, which ended on May 29, 2015.
