Professor Tekena Tamuno

He died on April 11th at the age of 83 years.
It was learnt that he recently came back
from the United States of America where he
was treated for prostate cancer before his
demise.

Efforts to get his family member to
comment on his death proved abortive as
they blatantly refused to interact with the
news men on the issue stating that the
demise of the professor was a “private
affair.”

The professor has been described as an
extremely cerebral historian and foremost
scholar of the humanities and man who
had great faith in God by those who knew
him.

We say, “rest in peace Professor Tek¬ena
Tamuno.”
