Benue NUJ chairman dies after birthing twins

Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Benue State Victoria Asher has died days after giving birth to twins.

Benue NUJ secretary Moses Akarhan said Mrs Asher died 8am on Saturday at the Federal Medical Centre in Makurdi following a cesarean section surgery.

She was delivered of a set of twins – a male and a female – before complications arose.

The deceased who worked with the state-owned radio station became the NUJ chairman in December 2018 following the death of David Ukuma who held the post for two months before he died.
