According to the Women Arise founder, Kanu “was at the forefront of the struggle for the restructuring of Nigeria into a proper federal arrangement. He stood against injustice of any form and defended righteousness at all times. He was a regular face at all remembrances for our departed heroes and he has just become one of them.

“There is no one who knew this ebullient spirit who would not be devastated by his death at this critical moment. A great “Iroko” has fallen in our forest and we deeply mourn him.

“Goodnight, great patriot,” she wrote.
