Son of late activist and poet, Ken Saro Wiwa has died of Coronavirus in UK.

The late activist’s son, Menegian died on Monday at the hospital as a result of complications from the novel Coronavirus.

Noo Saro-Wiwa, sister of the deceased, made this known on Thursday through a Facebook post.

She said her 1970-born brother had underlying health conditions before contracting the lethal virus.

She added that his late brother left a son, Louis.

“We said goodbye to my brother, Gian, on Monday. He had combined with underlying health conditions.

“Gian was the smartest and most talented out of all of us: a champion sprinter at school, a poet, an artist, budding engineer, a self-taught guitarist, and pianist. But mental health issues limited his life from age 16 onwards,” Noo wrote in a Facebook post.

She further described her late brother as “a kind and beautiful soul, always wanting the best for his family, always praying for our future success while being eternally optimistic about his own. And, of course, always loved his music”.

The Nigerian Diaspora Commission had earlier stated that over a dozen of Nigerians have died of the virus in the UK and US.
