Confusion assumed centre stage Monday concerning reported death of a member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Ossy Prestige, in a German hospital.
Prestige (APGA, Abia) has been in hospital recieving treatment for an undisclosed ailment since October 2020.
Family sources quoted Prestige's wife saying the lawmaker was in an intensive care unit in the hospital as at Sunday but could not confirm the reported death.
The source said: “Not true. My committee clerk just spoke with his wife who confirmed that he is in ICU. Just called her, she said he is getting better but still not responding to his Wattsapp call.”
Another source referred to one of the workers in his office in Abba as saying the lawmaker was still alive but undergoing treatment for cancer.
House Spokesman, Hon. Benjamin Kalu did not pick his calls at the time of this report.
