But recently Alamieyeseigha’s extradition was sought for by the British government to face the money laundering charge, a request that may have caused his heart attack two days ago.

Prior to the request, he was being treated for diabetes and hypertension in United Arab Emirate but quickly returned to Nigeria when the request came.

Sources told OrijoReporter that he was admitted to a private hospital in Port Harcourt two days back where he was receiving renal treatment during which he developed heart attack and was rushed to University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital.

It was said that Diepreye Alamieyeseigha who retired from the air force in 1992 as a Squadron Leader died on Saturday after he was initially kept on life-support at the government hospital.
