A former member of the Delta House of Assembly, Hon. Denis Omovie is dead.
Reports of his death went viral on social media Wednesday morning but the cause is yet to be ascertained.
The deceased represented Warri South Constituency 2 in the Assembly for 16 years (2003 to 2019).
Until his death, he was the Director-General, Delta State Public and Private Properties Protection Agency.
Chairman of Warri South Local Government Area, Dr. Micheal Tidi, described the ex-lawmaker’s death as big loss to the people of Warri South and Uvwie LGAs.
In a condolence message by his media assistant, Francis Sadhere, the chairman said his “legislative sagacity, unassuming qualitative representation, respect for party’s ideology and ingenuity in fostering peaceful co-existence among the people of Warri South Constituency 2,” singled him out among his colleagues.
He condoled with the family of the deceased and prayed for God to comfort them during this trying period.
