Ude Ohakwe spent most of his lifetime in Gboko, Benue State, where he was a trader. H traded in most of the local markets around the state.

He had moved to Gboko shortly after the civil war after spending time in Apiapum, in Obubra Local Government where he met and married his wife, late Elder Mrs. Mary Ude Jack who died on August 22, 2016.

A devout Christian with the Assemblies of God Church, Ude Ohakwe spent most of his weekend visiting Gboko Prison, now correctional facility, where he preached to inmates.

“My father was a complete gentleman who lived a fulfilled life. He was a dedicated Christian who served the Lord with all his heart. He loved his children and did his best. It is painful he has left us at this time. But we find consolation in the fact that he has gone to be with the Lord,” Chief Jackson Ude said in a statement signed on behalf of the family.

Ude Jack Ohakwe is survived by seven children, grandchildren, brothers, and sisters.
