According to the article, unconfirmed report says, he may have died of covid-19. Now to those that keep saying COVID-19 is a scam in Nigeria. Death rate of this second wave is more and claiming people from 40& above more than it did btw March & November, 2020. Let's be careful

He asked about my career, family, life and said his well wishes. Prayed our generation found a way to fix Nigeria. 

Li'l did I know that'd be our last meeting.

To my ebullient, irrepressible dean of stochastic methods, here's raising a toast to you. 

A legend goes home!
