Goodluck Jonathan, ex-president of Nigeria, has reacted to the death of the son of the late Ogoni activist and his former adviser Ken Saro Wiwa Junior.
Saro-Wiwa Jr. has passed away yesterday in a London hospital after a brief illness. He was born in 1968 and was an international journalist, an author and later worked as adviser to Nigeria’s former president. Jonathan on his Facebook account wrote: “A bright star has been prematurely plucked from the Nigerian firmament. Ken Wiwa, like his father was a patriot. Adieu great son of Nigeria”
.But while the whole world welcomed the release of the 21 Chibok girls by Boko Haram last week, Goodluck Jonathan under whose government the girls were kidnapped was silent. More than 200 of the girls were abducted by the militant sect Boko Haram on April 14, 2014, from a secondary school in Chibok, in Borno state.
