88-year-old Ex Senator, Nunyieh Dies Barely 7 Month After His Royal Wedding With His Young Bride

A renowned lawyer and former lawmaker from Ogoni in Rivers State, Senator Cyrus Nunieh has died. His death comes 11 months after marrying a young lady identified as Rosemary Ijeoma. Senator Nunieh was the first lawyer in Ogoniland.

If you recall, the Senator whose first wife died in 1991, remarried last year and explained he was tired of being lonely.

Speaking on why he decided to marry again at old age, Senator Nunieh said then

Quote
“I cannot continue to stay alone. I love her and she loves me. We understand each other and she is also intelligent. In marriage, there are advantages somewhere and disadvantages in other areas.
“There is no limitation in age. Some may say you are old; you may soon die. But some were dead even before they were born. Some were one year or two years old and they die. Death is not always dependent upon a man’s age.
“You know that rose is the best of all flowers and we have two Marys in the Bible; we have Mary, the mother of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.
“She too (Rosemary) is a believer of the Bible. But why are you particular about her age? She is not an infant. She is a very charming woman.”
