Wike’s strongman, Asari Toru LGA chair, dies


The Chairman of Asari Toru Local Government Area, Rivers State, Odiari Princewill, known as a strong loyalist of the state Governor, Nyesom Wike, is dead.

It was gathered that the council boss breathed his last on Wednesday at about 10pm and was buried on Thursday morning at the Port Harcourt cemetary.
