Youth Activist, Adams Unaji, In “Occupy Nigeria” Protests Dies At 41

Adams Kennedy Unaji, a Nigerian activist who was instrumental in mobilizing participants in the 2012 “Occupy Nigeria” protests, has died. He died on Wednesday, July 3, 2013 while waiting to go on a radio talk show at Vision FM in Abuja. Sources at the station said he died of an apparent heart attack, but there is no medical corroboration of the source of death as this report was filed.

Mr. Unaji complained of feeling uncomfortable as he waited to go on air. “He said he needed to visit the loo,” said one source, who added, “Once he returned, he asked to be taken to the hospital. He was drenched in his own sweat.” The source added that a vehicle belonging to the station was immediately arranged to take the activist to the hospital, but he died a short distance from the clinic.He was the director of youth development at the Council for Nigerian National Interest. He held the position until his death.”Mr. Unaji is survived by his wife, Valentina Ibirogba, a Texas-based Nigerian,  a son and his mother.

May his soul rest in peace...amen!
