A former member of the Rivers State House of Assembly who respresented Ahoada East Constituency I, Hon. Martyns Mannah and unrepentant critic of Governor Nyesom Wike’s administration has died after protracted illness.
It cannot be immediately confirmed the circumstances surrounding his sudden demise but a source disclosed that the lawmaker has been battling a heart complication for a while.
During his first tenure, the late lawmaker, representing Constituency 1, Ahoada East Local Government, under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party, later became an ardent critic of Wike’s style of administration.
He defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
