He is said to have suffered a cardiac arrest that led to his demise.

Other sources said he slumped in Effurun and was rushed to a private hospital in Warri where he was confirmed dead on arrival by medical doctors.

Niger Delta Today reports that the Uvwie Council vice chairman was purportedly ostracised by the Uvwie monarch over the crisis sur­rounding the appointment of the Community Liaison Of­ficer (CLO) to a company in the area.

His ostracisation followed a petition he wrote against the revered Ovie of Uvwie Kingdom, HRM Abe 1, to the Nigeria Police Force demanding the arrest and interrogation of the monarch.

The death of Ighedo was alleged to have been greeted by jubilation in most parts of Uvwie Kingdom particularly the Ekpan area of the Kingdom.

Details surrounding the death of the late Uvwie Council vice chairman were still sketchy at the time of filing this report but multiple sources in Uvwie confirmed the demise of the politician.
