Confirming the incident to journalists in Warri on Monday, the APC Ward 12 Chairman, Gabriel Omorere, said the death of Okokoje “came as a shock to the APC in Warri South and Delta State in general.”

Omorere, who led a delegation of APC chairmen in Warri South LGA in a condolence visit to the wife, children and family of Okokoje said the chairman would be greatly missed.
