Two frontline rights groups, Women Arise and Centre for Change, have described the death, earlier this Wednesday, January 13, of former Military Governor of Imo and Lagos states, Rear Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu (Rtd), as devastating.
“We are devastated to learn of the death of the former governor of Lagos state, Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu,” their President, Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin, said in a statement.
“Admiral Kanu,” the statement said, “would forever be remembered as a worthy NADECO leader who gave his all to the anti-military struggle in one of the darkest moments of this country’s history.
“He was at the forefront of the struggle for the restructuring of Nigeria into a proper federal arrangement.
“He stood against injustice of any form and defended righteousness at all times.
“He was a regular face at all remembrances for our departed heroes and he has just become one of them.
“There is no one who knew this ebullient spirit who would not be devastated by his death at this critical moment.
“A great “Iroko” has fallen in our forest and we deeply mourn him.
“Goodnite, great patriot!”
