Ogun photo journalist buried

Mr. Durosanya was a photo journalist at the Ogun State Ministry of Information.

The Ogun State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, has lost one of its veterans, Oluyomi Durosanya, who died from a kidney disease on Sunday at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu.

The ace photo-journalist’s kidney problem was discovered three years ago.

Due to the terminal disease, Mr. Durosanya was forced to retire from the Ogun State Ministry of Information where he was the Chief Photographer. The late photo-journalist, fondly called Bros Yomme, joined the Ministry in 1978.

In recognition of his commitment to journalistic practice, he was appointed to the state council of NUJ as an ex-officio and Internal Auditor.

Mr. Durosanya, 58, was buried at his private residence at Olomore Housing Estate, Abeokuta. Service was conducted by the Celestial Church of Christ where he was a Most Senior Evangelist.

At the burial ceremony were members of the NUJ, officials of the Ministry of Information, staffers of the Ogun State House of Assembly, neighbours, and other sympathisers.
