Ex-PDP BoT chair, Tony Anenih’s son, Eugene, dies

By Chinelo Obogo

Former chairman of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Tony Anenih, lost one of his sons, Eugene, yesterday.

Eugene’s death is the second in the Anenih family in three weeks.

On April 17,  2017, the senior Anenih’s first wife and Eugene’s mother, Dame Patricia, died at the age of 74.

She was regarded as the matriarch of the Anenih family and her remains are yet to be interred.

Yesterday, Eugene reportedly slumped and died of alleged heart attack while playing a game of tennis at Ikoyi Club, in Lagos.

Reports indicated that his friends administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on him, but failed to revive him after which he was rushed to St Nicholas Hospital, also in Lagos Island.

Eugene, it was learnt, died before he got to the hospital.

 Before his death, he was a stock broker and the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Nova Finance and Securities Limited.

He worked previously at TRW Finance and Securities Limited and has been a director of Thomas Wyatt Nigeria Plc since 2008.

Daily Sun called Police Public Relations Officer, Olarinde Famous-Cole, for further details, but calls to his mobile line went unanswered.

    let me start by asking daily sun why the call to the police?why,in this circumstance?I pity mr fix the part of the country I come from it is an abomination for parents to bury their children.i sincerely extend my condolences.however,we should all learn not to play god;not amass all the wealth,via public fund and other dirty means,because nobody knows the future.some amass wealth by these evil ways for ten generations to come.a modest life is the key whether reach or poor,in or out of authority.and when in authority use it for the common good of all and your unborn generation shall also benefit.

    Your comment is out of sense. Somebody slumped and died does not have anything to do with amass wealth as you foolishly say.
    If the mother of Eugene died at 71 years, she was old and died as an old woman meaning that the son might have been 40 – 55 years (though age was not indicated.
    If the father does not die, Ochendo, in Igbo have you not seen children dying before their parents? Is it not in Igbo that parents do juju to kill enterprising young ones.
    Death is death and does not select. It comes to the right person and at the right time.
    Think of your own death and if it will be a fulfilled one or a misery one with your poverty stricken idiosyncrasy.
    May the deceased sleep in peace.
