He was said to have died at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital from illness suspected to be Coronavirus.

Reacting to his death in a post on Facebook, Diana Mary Nsan said:-

“My brother-in-law nursed him for the last two weeks up until yesterday.

“The government needs to tell us what killed him. He died at the isolation centre I suppose, so we still need to know the facts. My inlaw is self-isolating.”

“May his kind soul rest in peace.”

Akwaji was a member of the Peoples Democratic Party and had a large following in his constituency.
