MAKURDI â€” Former President of Association of Local Governments of Nigeria, ALGON, and member of the Benue State House of Assembly, representing Tarka State Constituency, Mr. Baver Dzeremo, is dead.
Dzeremo died weekend, at the Federal Medical Centre Makurdi, after a protracted battle with brain tumour which had kept him out of the state Assembly for more than a year.
Vanguard gathered that when the deceased took ill about a year ago, he was flown to a German hospital where he was diagonised of brain tumour and underwent series of therapy and operations to remove the tumor.
He was, however, brought back to the country few weeks back and hospitalized at the National Hospital Abuja, and was later discharged when his condition seemed to have improved.
He was, however, rushed back to the Federal Medical Centre, Makurdi, last week for further treatment when his condition suddenly relapsed but was pronounced dead by medical experts few hours later.
