- Chief Humphrey Anumudu, a well-known candidate for governor of the Imo State Labour Party, was found dead at his home in Lagos after going to a party meeting in Abuja.

Chief Humphrey Anumudu, a well-known Imo State Labour Party candidate for governor, was found dead in his home in Lagos. His supporters and other politicians were shocked and saddened by this news.
Anumudu recently went to a party meeting at the national headquarters of the Labor Party in Abuja. He then went back to Lagos. Since 1998, the experienced businessman and politician has been running for governor in a number of party primaries and general elections.
Born in the Mbieri Ancient Kingdom within the Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State, Anumudu’s political career began with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), where he was reportedly the rightful winner of the 1998 governorship primary.
However, the ticket was eventually handed over to Achike Udenwa, who governed Imo State from 1999 to 2007. Anumudu didn’t give up on running for governor, so he became the candidate for the Zenith Labour Party in the 2019 election.
In addition to being a politician, Anumudu was also a well-known and respected lawyer and the CEO of Globe Motors. His past electoral campaigns also included a run under the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
A close friend of Anumudu revealed that the politician passed away around 5:30 p.m. on Friday. His sudden death was said to have been caused by a “spiritual attack,” but no other information has been given.
The death of Anumudu has made the political world in Imo State sad, and many people have sent their condolences to his family and friends.
Anumudu’s commitment to the Labour Party and the upcoming November 11th, 2023 gubernatorial contest was evident, as he had already paid a 25 million Naira fee for the party’s governorship form.
His loss is likely to have a big effect on how the Labour Party runs its campaign, and people will talk about how to find a good replacement candidate.
As Imo State tries to deal with the sudden death of a well-known politician, the Labour Party will have to rethink how it will run in the next election.
Meanwhile, Anumudu’s family, friends, and supporters are left to mourn the loss of a dedicated public servant and respected community leader.
The details of Anumudu’s death are still not clear, but more research should help figure out what happened.
The Labour Party is likely to make a public statement about what happened and what the party plans to do next in the wake of this major setback.
