A cross section of Nigerians has reacted with shock and belief to the news of the murder, last night, of advertising guru Sesan Ogunro.
Ogunro, who owned and ran the Lagos-based EMINENT Advertising, was an immense talent who wrote many great copies, including the immortal “MKO is our man-ooo”.
Leading the mourning is Senator Ojudu Babafemi, who has taken to social media to lament the needless waste of Sesan’s life. Below are some of the comments of Senator Ojudu and other shocked Nigerians:
Ojudu Babafemi: Sesan Ogunro, my brother and friend was shot last night in Lagos. He died. A man of immense talent, my inspiration...
Egbon Sesan manages an advertising company Eminent Communications in Lagos, a great political communicator. He worked on Abiola’s campaign, Tinubu, Fashola, Fayemi, Dele Belgore and my own as well. We collaborated effectively in most of these. Easy going, simple and full of humour, he was the quintessential Ekiti man. Ramrod straight, honest, a man of integrity. I am going to miss you Egbon. All of us your aburos will miss you. Egbon was shot in front of his church after the Xnas carol, in the presence of his wife, children and grand children...
Sunre o Egbon Sesan, my brother and mentor. I will miss your artistry, your humour, your good naturedness. Just tell him what you want to do and ideas will start coming out of his mouth in torrents. He has left for us his children who are as talented as he was. Sesan Jr is main producer of musical videos for topmost Nigerian musicians. So is Fade his daughter, my one-time columnist in PM News who is doing so well in radio in Lagos.
Gbenro Adegbola: Oh dear! What a waste.
Bola Magbagbeade: Haba, this is painful. May God intervene in Nigeria’s matters, amen.
Olutoyin Ajakaiye: Soooooo sad. What a bitter pill to swallow. May ur killers never find peace.
Grace Olubunmi Salako Smith: Oh my God!! So sorry oo but in church and in the presence of his family, that smirks of an act of vengeance.
Chris Nwagboso: This is horrible and horrible and horrible again!!!!. We have to do all in our God given power to ensure that Nigeria does not turn into USA with respect to the ownership of guns and assassination of hard working people like Egbon.
Opeyemi Fajemilehin: Ehhhhhhhhhhh!Ehhhhhhhhh!Nigeria is in BIIIIIIIIIIGGGGGGGG trouble! Egbon Sesan, shot??? killed??? Eeeeeehhhhhhhh!
Kehinde Akintola: It is well. That’s d way our resourceful human resources are being wasted cos of paper money. Who knows d reason for killing such man, even if he hurts someone, what does his death earn them? Adieu and may God grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss of the Dear One. Shalom
Jagunmolu ’OluwaDare Lasisi: Ogunro’s death is a terrible news to accept.12 years after Uncle Bola Ige today.
Muyiwa Olumilua: What a calamity! Why does this have to happen to such a good person? I am completely short of words.
