The composer of the National Youth Service Corps anthem, Wole Adetiran, is dead.
A publicity officer from the Ogun State NYSC office, Emmanuel Igba, confirmed the death to our correspondent.
According to Igba, Adetiran died on Friday evening.
In a terse message to our correspondent, Igba said, “He is dead. The LGI already sent an official message to the State Coordinator who will inform the DG. He died this evening.”
The Ogun State NYSC Coordinator, Dr Belinda Faniyi, also corroborated Igba’s message.
“The LGI just informed me so I’ll let DG know,” she said.
Adetiran’s death has also been announced in multiple Facebook groups of the Celestial Church of Christ, as he held the post of National Music Director before his death.
