Mrs. Ikpe, a professor, died on November 8 after a protracted illness, the Commissioner for Information in the state, Charles Udoh, said in a statement issued on Friday.

The State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, has directed that the Nigerian flag be flown at half-mast in the state to show respect for the departed commissioner, the statement said.
