According to a press statement by NAHCON’s Head of Public Affairs, Fatima Sanda Usara, on Wednesday, the sad event occurred Tuesday night at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital.

“With a deep sense of loss but with total submission to the will of the Almighty Creator, NAHCON mourns the passing away of its Board Member, Alhaji Ibrahim Ogbonnia Amah, the Commissioner representing Southeast on the Commission’s 4th Board. The sad moment befell on the night of 30th November 2021 at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital.

“The Late Alhaji Amah has always made meaningful contributions on behalf of his constituency during NAHCON’s Board meetings. Born on 23rd June 1964, the late Commissioner hailed from Ezi-Ogbuu in EniohaItim, Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi state,” the statement read in part.

Before his demise, Amah was a student of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Ebonyi branch studying Conflict Resolutions.

He was a graphic artist, printer, community leader, and Islamic activist.

Late Amah is survived by three wives, 11 children and a grandchild.

The statement added, “Alhaji Ibrahim Amah will be remembered for promoting Islamic ethics in the Southeast region and for his contribution to peace and harmony in Nigeria.

“He was a member of the group known as Southeast Muslims of Nigeria (SERMON) that mapped out strategies for peaceful co-existence and understanding among different Igbo groups and called for security and safety of all Nigerian lives, properties, places of worship, etc., irrespective of where they come from or live.

“May his soul rest in peace and may the Almighty grant him Jannatul Firdaus.”
