It was reported that he died around 10 am on Tuesday at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH).

The news of his passing was shared across different WhatsApp groups in Benin, the capital of Edo State.

The ace TV producer was a renowned and award-winning dramatist, writer, veteran Labour Union leader and social mobiliser, humanist and consistent patriot.

He created one of the precursors of Nigerian Home Video, the Hotel de Jordan in 1973, on the Midwest Television (MTV), which later became NTA Benin, following the take over of all television stations by the Federal Government.
Meanwhile, a former Chairman of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Edo State Council, Godwin Erhahon, has described the death of Jonathan Ihonde as a great loss to the movie industry and the Labour Union movement.

Speaking to our Correspondent on phone, Erhahon described the late veteran as a dramatist par excellence.

“We were very close. He was a dramatist par excellence. He was a labour leader to the core, who always served as a resource person at Labour Union conferences,” he said.

This is coming after the death of John Okafor popularly known as Mr. Ibu and Tolani Quadri Oyebamiji, popularly known as Sisi Quadri earlier this month.
