It was gathered that Okafor was in South Africa for official duties with some of his colleagues.

According to a family member, the lawmakers finished their assignment at the weekend and while his colleagues returned to Nigeria, the Awka community in South Africa decided to host him and invited him to attend a programme with them, only for him to die in his hotel room.

His Umuzocha village in the heart of Awka Metropolis has been thrown into mourning as people have been visiting his country home to commiserate with his family members.
