Sources said Igbegbe, who was a former councillor under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the local government, was already warming up for the local government chairman come 2023.

In his tribute to the former agitator, Owolo Tubor Oyinbi Onduku, an online media publisher, described the death of Igbegbe as devastating and a big loss to the Ijaw nation.
He said he was always in the forefront of peace-building especially among the youth when the need arose.
