The former Governor of Imo State made the denial via his tweeter handle, @realRochas.
He expressed disbelief that a news outlet (not DAILY POST) will go to the extent of using his name to “break news.”
He wrote: “I am utterly shocked that a platform like @TheNationNews would go to extent of putting my name behind such falsehood in the bid to break news.
“Let me reiterate that I didn’t speak to journalists regarding the news making rounds about the passing of Senator Ben Uwajumogu.
“I demand that @TheNationNews take down this news piece as it is false and completely misleading. One would expect better from such a platform.”
DAILY POST reported earlier that Senator Ben Uwajumogu representing Imo North senatorial district slumped in his residence and died.
