Ken Saro-Wiwa Son
Ken Saro-Wiwa Jr who passed away  at 47 after suffering a stroke is indeed a sad news for Nigerians. He was a journalist who became an adviser to three presidents.
Noo Saro-Wiwa, sister of the late journalist said”It is with great sadness that we announce that Ken Saro-Wiwa Jr passed away suddenly. His family are devastated and request privacy at this difficult time.”Funeral arrangements are yet to be worked out, the family says. Ken Saro-Wiwa was first appointed in 2006 as a special adviser on peace and conflict resolution by former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo.He later served Mr Obasanjo’s successor, President Umaru Yar’Adua, as an adviser on international affairs and stayed on under President Goodluck Jonathan until he lost last year’s election. Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, commiserated with his family.

In a statement last night, Wike expressed shock over the death, saying it was a major loss to Rivers State, Nigeria and humanity. The governor added that the late Saro-Wiwa Jr. devoted his life to humanity, pointing out that his transition to glory has left a vacuum that would be difficult to fill.
