Senator Stella Oduah's Son Dies In Abuja Hospital

Stella Oduah on Friday lost her son, said to be 28yrs old. He died at a private hospital in Abuja in the early hours of Friday.

Oduah, who was a Minister of Aviation in the administration of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, sounded distressed on the phone when Punch contacted her on Friday afternoon.

In a barely audible voice, she confirmed the report, saying her son died after a brief illness.

One of Oduah’s colleagues, Senator Uche Ekwunife, who represents Anambra Central in the Senate, also confirmed the incident to Punch, saying she had been with Oduah to console her just like few other senators who heard about the “unfortunate situation.”

Ekwunife said, “It is very unfortunate. It has shown that death and life belong to God and it is only Him who controls our life. It is a trying moment for her and all of us. I know how it feels as a mother. It is only God who can console her.”

Meanwhile, some well-wishers took to her twitter page to condole with her.

One of them, Oladayo, tweeted thus: “Stella Oduah lost her son? Wow. Was he sick or something? Sad sha. Loss of a child is not good for anyone.”


  1. So so Sorry my dear senator just take hearth God brings nd he takes. God Almighty will give the mind to bear the lost.

  2. God will give hearth to bear the lost.

  3. Really? Why sympathizing? This is what average Nigerians experience daily because the money for the society for the benefits of the poor masses were stolen, buy bullet proof cars, stark in UK, US banks. While I regretted that the boy (a compatriots) I have no sympathy for the wicked soul of these thieves who called themselves senators including Stella oduah!
