By Akeem Abas

The Oyo State Council of the Union of Journalists of Nigeria (NUJ) described the death of Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) Ibadan staff member Deacon Sunday Ogunyemi as sad and devastating.

The union said this in a statement jointly signed by its president, Ademola Babalola and secretary, Sola Oladapo, on Tuesday in Ibadan.

The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) reports that the late Ogunyemi, a versatile FRCN reporter, died Sunday at the age of 41.

“We cannot find suitable words to describe the passing of a colleague and a friend. Ogunyemi was a great journalist. The news of his death came as a brutal shock.

“The late Ogunyemi was a disciplined and highly reasoned colleague who displayed great dedication to whatever cause he believed in.

“He was a gentleman and a professional at heart. He gave a good account of himself as a judicial correspondent, telling many stories on the job, ”he said.

The union expressed its condolences to the wife, children and family members for the irreplaceable disappearance of its member.

He also sympathized with the leadership of the FRCN, colleagues, friends and supporters of the deceased journalist.

The NUJ prayed that God would forgive his shortcomings and grant him eternal rest, while giving the family the courage to bear the irreplaceable loss.

The union implored members to mourn their deceased member and remember their family in daily prayers, praying to God to stop the untimely deaths in the union. (NOPE)
