Breaking: Nigerian Ambassador To US, Sylvanus Nsofor, Dies At 85
Though no official statement has been issued, ThisDay reports that competent sources confirmed his death.
Nsofor, who is a retired justice of Nigeria’s Court of Appeal, 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.
It was his first ambassadorial posting, after his retirement from the Court of Appeal as a Justice.
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.
May his soul Rest In Peace.
