There is palpable tension in Orsu Local government Area(LGA), Imo State following the death of the Transition Committee(T.C) Chairman designate, Chief Sunday Gabriel Umenyi, days after his thanksgiving services in his home town of Amaruru while awaiting formal swearing-in by the Governor ,Rochas Okorocha who is said to be outside the State.
The T.C Chairman designate is said to have fought numerous battles towards his nomination and was said by the family to be hale and hearty during the thanksgiving service and celebration with family members and friends recently. The way and manner the T.C Chairman designate passed on is said to have sent shivers down among Politicians and the likes in the LGA.
You may recall that the late Chief Umenyi contested the State Assembly seat for the Orsu Constituency in 2011 under the All Progressives Grand Alliance and has been a long standing supporter of Governor Okorocha, and an arrow head in the All Progressives Congress (APC) build up.
