Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has expressed shock and sadness at news of the death of Abiodun Onafuye, a journalist in the employ of TheNews/P.M News.

The late Onafuye who died in the early hours of Friday, September 9, was until his death, a correspondent in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.
A career journalist with over 16 years experience, the late Onafuye had been in Abeokuta as a correspondent for close to 10 years. Colleagues describe him as “hardworking, conscientious and dedicated.”
The Ogun State Governor while commiserating with the Onafuye family, prayed for the repose of the soul of the departed.
Governor Amosun also commiserated with the Ogun State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) and the management of the Independent Communications Network Limited, publishers of TheNews Magazine/P.M News over the death of Onafuye, who he described as “a committed and dedicated journalist.”
The governor prayed that the good Lord grants the wife, children and colleagues Onafuye left behind, “the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
