Anambra NSCDC commandant Mr John Ahwen is dead .

The Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in Anambra, John Ahwen, has died.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Ahwen, who was deployed to the  state in March 2017, died on Monday night in Awka.

Mose Alao, Deputy Commandant of NSCDC in the state, told NAN on Tuesday that late Ahwen reported to work on Monday looking “hale and hearty”.
Alao said at 10:00 p.m., however, somebody came to his residence and informed him that Ahwen was seriously ill and had been taken to the hospital.

He said: “At this point, the person requested that I accompanied  him to see our boss in the hospital, but I told him that it would be in the morning hours that I would go and see him.

“But because the person insisted, I accompanied him, but surprisingly as we arrived Assumpta Hospital, Awka, a medical personnel took me to the room where I saw the lifeless body of our boss.”
Alao, who said that both the headquarters of the NSCDC and the family of the deceased had been duly informed, noted that the staff of NSCDC in the state was in mourning because of the sudden death of Ahwen.
