Nigerian octogenarian ambassador to U.S, Sylvanus Nsofor, is dead

 

The Nigerian ambassador to the United States (US) Justice Sylvanus Adiewere Nsofor, is dead. He died at the age of 85.

Nsofor died in a Maryland hospital yesterday night, December 10.

The Nigerian Envoy was appointed into office as Nigeria’s Ambassador to the United States of America by President Muhammadu Buhari on November 13, 2017.

It was his first ambassadorial posting, after his retirement from the Court of Appeal.

He was rewarded with the appointment because in 2011 he was the only Judge at the court of appeal who entered judgement in Buhari’s favour during the post presidential election court case.

Nsofor was born on March 17, 1935, in Oguta, Imo State, Nigeria
