Osazuwa Michael, better known by his stage name Zuwa, was shot in the back of the head and died in January 2024 in Houston, Texas, USA, the son of Agbonayinma. He was 23 years old.
When Agbonayinma visited the state secretariat in October 2023, he was the first to formally notify the APC leadership that he would be running for office, according to The Punch.

Speaking to party members and supporters in the Ikpoba-Okha local government area on Thursday, February 15, Agbonanyinma urged them to stick together and support the party’s nominee in Saturday’s primary election, according to Leadership.

He expressed gratitude to party officials and other participants for providing him with “overwhelming moral, financial, and spiritual support in my journey so far.”

Agbonayinma said:

My family and I are currently in complete shock. Furthermore, right now I’m not in the right frame of mind to pursue a serious political campaign. I am currently putting a halt to my gubernatorial campaign after giving it careful thought. In order to grieve and heal, we need some alone time.
