“It is with great sadness that we announce that Ken Saro-Wiwa Jr passed away suddenly. His family are devastated and request privacy at this difficult time,” said Noo Saro-Wiwa, sister of the late journalist.

Funeral arrangements are yet to be determined, the family said.

      Thank you for sharing this article. May his soul rest in peace. It’s ironic that perhaps if his father had been listened to, the Niger Delta would not be in the mess it is today, and the country would not have lost so much more than what it would have cost to clean up the environment.

    Poor reporting by Guardian. You did even tell us how old he is. He was born 1968, he was also editor of the UK Guardian′s New Media Lab

    Such a brilliant man. A great loss.
