Cross River Assembly Loses Another Member
A member of the Cross River State Assembly representing Ikom constituency 2, Simon Nkoro Egbung, has died.
Until his death Simon Nkoro was the Deputy Leader of the Cross River State House of Assembly.
Aged 62 and a two-term member of the house, he died on Sunday morning after months of battling with cancer of the trachea.
Nkoro’s death came barely three months after that of fellow lawmaker, Stephen Ukpukpen who represented the obudu state constituency.
Ukpukpen had slumped during a routine morning exercise session and, his widow, abbey ukpukpen who won the by-election to replace him is yet to be inaugurated.
