88-year old Former Senator, who Married a Much Younger Bride, Dies 11 months After Wedding

Cyrus Nunyieh

Ex-Senator, Cyrus Nunyieh, who made waves 11 months ago with his marriage to a much younger bride, is dead. His death was announced this morning by the Ogoni Youth Federation.

He was a senator of the second republic and was the first and oldest lawyer of Ogoni extraction. 

He married forty-something-year-old Rosemary Ijeoma in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state in October 2017. Cyrus said he decided to marry another wife because he was lonely and needed a companion after his wife’s death in 1991.

Sadly, he died less than a year after the union.
