Stanley Nwabia, a popular social commentator on Twitter, has died at the age of 43.
Family sources confirmed that Nwabia died in the early hours of Sunday following an unsuccessful blood transfusion procedure in Lagos. Acoording to twitter user, Ojugo Onyeluka (@GentleOjay), he spoke with Mr Nwabia’s wife and she confirmed the passing of her husband.

His last Tweet was on September 25th and it reads, 'Oh well, let bygones be bygones'.
Some of his associates have also tweeted confirmation of his passing and hailed him as a courageous political commentator and patriot. Nwabia is popular amongst supporters of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, which he used his Twitter handle (@MrStanleyNwabia) to champion online.
