Wife of Benue State politician and elder statesman, Wantaregh Paul Iyorpuu Unongo, Mama Victoria Avarave Unongo is dead.
Our correspondent gathered that Mrs Unongo died at a private hospital, following complications from high blood pressure.
A statement by one of Mama Victoria Unongo’s sons, Terkura explained that the late Victoria died in the late hours of Monday, 14th September 2020.
According to Terkura, “ I want to inform you of the passing on to glory of our mother, Baba Paul Unongo’s first wife, Mrs Victoria Avarave Unongo who was recalled back to God in the very late hours of Monday night.”
Another message on the Facebook page of another of her step son, Fidelis Unongo described the late Mama Victoria as a rock and pillar of his life whom he said even death cannot separate them.
“Mummy not even death can break our bond, you were my rock, pillar, your kind and inspirational words, you have stood by me through it all, during my elections you were there 150% you will forever be my HERO. I love you eternally”, the message read.
