He died in a London Hospital after a brief illness.

Ajene was George Akume’s deputy for eight years before he became a Senate Minority Leader in the upper legislative chamber.

Shortly after the sad news of his demise filtered into town, many sympathizers trooped into his residence and wept uncontrollably.
