Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has expressed shock and sadness over the sudden demise of Mr. Kenneth Edafe Ogba, a member representing Isoko South 1 Constituency, in Delta State House of Assembly.
Ogba reportedly slumped and died during a party meeting on Sunday evening.
The first term member of the House and former Supervisory Councilor in Isoko South Local Government Area was elected into the House of Assembly in 2019.
He was said to have had a serious argument with a party member at the meeting.
Okowa in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Olisa Ifeajika, in Asaba, described the deceased as a committed, hardworking, patriotic and selfless lawmaker who served the state and his constituents diligently.

“On behalf of the government and people of Delta, I commiserate with the Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, members of the House, Isoko South Constituency I constituents and the entire Isoko nation over the demise of Kenneth Ogba.
“As we mourn his passage, may Almighty God give his family, friends, constituents and associates the fortitude to bear the loss,” he said.
