A former military administrator of Imo and Lagos State, Ndubuisi Kanu, has died at the age of 77.
The retired rear admiral of the Nigerian Navy died on Wednesday after a brief illness.
Kanu was first appointed military governor of Imo State, Nigeria in March 1976 during the military regime of General Olusegun Obasanjo.
He was the first governor after the decree that established the state from part of the old East Central State.
He was later transferred to become governor of Lagos State in 1977, leaving office in July 1978.
