Hundreds of Nigerians and foreigners on Sunday graced the interdenominational commiseration service to pay tributes to the late Nigerian-born Canadian professor and writer Pius Adesanmi,

The late Adesanmi was among the 149 passengers of Ethiopian Airline from Addis Ababa to Nairobi in Kenya, which crashed on March 10th.

The service which held at Parkway Event Centre, Lagos, attracted professionals from different walks of life, including doctors, lawyers, bookwriters, philosophers, journalists, artisans and artists amongst others.

Some of those in attendance said that they had not met the late professor personally, but had read many of his works.

The professor’s former colleague at Carleton University, Canada Molara Wood, who was at the service, described him as a thoughtful and insightful human being, who beamed with kindness and decency.
