Popular social commentator, @MrStanleyNwabia dies at 43 after a brief illness (See his last Tweets)

Stanley Nwabia, a popular social commentator on Twitter, has died at the age of 43.

 

Family sources confirmed that Nwabia died in the early hours of Sunday following an unsuccessful blood transfusion procedure in Lagos.  According to a twitter user, Ojugo Onyeluka (@GentleOjay), he spoke with Mr Nwabia’s wife and she confirmed the passing of her husband.

His last Tweet was on September 25th and it reads, ‘Oh well, let bygones be bygones’.

“Stanley Nwabia, what is the pathway to securing a resilient future for your family?”

Me: That time when rain was falling, I take umbrella outside. I come and see plenty people inside rain. But plenty breeze started blowing, it come and spoil my umbrella. So I come and go inside
