Former Chief Of Defence Staff Vice Admiral Mike Akhigbe Dies Of Throat Cancer.

The former Chief of General Staff, Vice Admiral Mike Akhigbe, gave up the ghost at his New York residence yesterday at about 1pm (7pm Nigerian time). The former number two citizen of Nigeria, who was receiving visitors in his house yesterday, having been discharged from the hospital, suddenly developed some complications at the middle of a conversation with his guests. Shortly after this, he was said to have passed out and efforts to revive him were futile and doctors confirmed him dead. The cause of death was throat cancer, said the source.
SaharaReporters learnt that the former military administrator of Ondo and Lagos States first experienced symptoms of his disease in 2010. He was engaged in President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign at the time, but took a leave to fly to Germany where doctors gave him the grim diagnosis. For three years, he underwent treatment for his cancer in Germany, the UK and the United States of America before finally succumbing to the disease earlier today. Over the last one month, the former naval officer received treatment at the Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Hospital in Manhattan. The hospital is one of the top treatment facilities for cancer in the world. May God grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss, they said we should not speak ill of the dead so i would keep my story to myself till another day.
