It was discovered that Benue State native Ikyegh had died at the age of 65.
Ikyegh’s death was confirmed by Josephine J. Ekperobe, registrar of the Court of Appeal, according to the WHISTLER.
Ekperobe said, “A very tragic loss. May serenity be granted to his cherished soul. Amen.
Recall that Ikyegh chaired the committee that directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to allow President Bola Tinubu’s, PDP’s Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party’s Peter Obi’s legal teams to view materials utilized in the February 25, 2023, presidential election.
In 1980, Ikyegh received his degree from the Nigerian Law School in Lagos.
On March 27, 1991, he was appointed to the Benue State High Court as a judge. On July 16, 2010, he was promoted to the Court of Appeal.
Ikyegh was on the five-person panel that heard Atiku Abubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari’s appeal for the presidency in 2019.

According to what is known, the former general secretary of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) passed away on Thursday, December 7, 2023, at precisely 1:30 am—ironically, the same time as his 80th birthday.
The Tribune claims that Kokori’s personal aide, Atawada Barry Oke, revealed his passage at around 2:30 in the morning.
According to Oke, the former labor leader’s condition worsened on Monday since he was unable to communicate with those around him while on life support.
Kokori passed away just one month after screaming from his hospital bed on Thursday, November 9, 2023, that despite his enormous contribution to the nation’s democratic development, he had been ignored and left to die.
