Report has it that former vice President of Nigeria Dr Alex Ekweme has died in a London hospital.

Although the news has not been confirmed, inside sources say he died on Monday evening.

Recall that President Buhari had ordered the immediate transfer of the ex vice president from an Enugu hospital to a hospital abroad.

The former vice who celebrated 85th birthday last month reportedly collapsed at his home few weeks back.

Before Dr Ekweme was sent abroad for treatment, he suffered a chest infection and was admitted at Memphys Hospital in Enugu State.
