A former General Secretary of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Chief Frank Kokori, is dead, aged 80.

He was reported dead around 1:30 am on Thursday, the same day he clocked up 80.

The death of the ailing former labour union leader was confirmed by his personal assistant, Atawada Barry Oke, to Tribune.

Oke said Kokori’s health relapsed on Monday and was placed on life support after he could no longer interact with people around him.

Kokori’s death came barely one month after he cried out from his hospital bed on Thursday, November 9, 2023, that he had been neglected in spite of his huge contribution to the democratic growth of the country.

The Octogenarian has been on sick bed at Mount Horeb Clinic, Warri, Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State, over kidney-related ailment since early November.
