Nigerian Ambassador to the United States, Sylvanus Nsofor, has died Thursday night at the age of 85.
Though no official statement has been issued, competent sources confirmed his death.
Mr Nsofor assumed office as Nigeria’s ambassador to the United States on November 13, 2017.
The envoy succeeded Prof. Adebowale Adefuye, who died towards the end of his tenure as Nigeria’s ambassador to US.
The deceased is a retired justice of Nigeria’s Court of Appeal.
Born on March 17, 1935, in Oguta, Imo State, Nsofor graduated from London’s now-defunct Holborn College of Law in 1962. He also bagged an LL.M from the London School of Economics in 1964.
