The Street Reporters Newspaper gathered that the council chairman died in the early hours of Tuesday of an undisclosed ailment.
Sources say he died in an Enugu hospital.
It was gathered that council workers who reported for duty were turned back home.
The source also said that his body has been returned to Nsukka and deposited at Bishop Shanahan Hospital.
It could be recalled that the chairman was represented by his Deputy, Hon Cosmas Ugwueze, last Friday during the commissioning of two court complex and roads in Nsukka by Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi due to his ill health.
Circumstances over the alleged death of the council boss have not been made public as the council secretariat is under lock and key at the time of this report.
The chairman, who was re-elected and sworn in for the second tenure on March 2, was last sighted in public about two weeks ago.
His death came few weeks after a coffin parade protest was organised against the him, after stiff opposition his re-election faced.
His acclaimed political godfather also suddenly died recently.
