The family of political juggernaut, Chief Anthony Akhakon Anenih, CFR, the Iyasele of Esanland in Edo State, has cleared the air on the circumstances surrounding the death of their patriarch.

Contrary to earlier reports that Anenih, who was popularly known as “Mr. Fix It” during his day as an active politician, died after a protracted illness, a statement issued on Sunday night in Abuja by Mr. Anthony Akhakon Anenih Jr. on behalf of the family said that he died earlier in the day “after a brief illness”.

Anenih “died at aged 85, Chief Anenih, is survived by many children, grandchildren and great grandchildren,” the statement said, adding: “A beloved patriarch, he enjoyed God’s uncommon grace while alive.

“He served God and humanity with commitment. He also served his fatherland to the best of his ability.

“We will all sorely miss him. But his legacies live on.

“Burial arrangements by the family will be announced subsequently.”
