The Nigerian literary community has lost one of its dedicated members, Mr Austyn Njoku, to the cold arms of death.

The statement said that the deceased, who was a former national treasurer of the association and a member of the Advisory Council of     ANA Lagos, was sick for a while. It added there was high hope of Njoku’s recovery from the illness, which was not named, when he gave up the ghost on the evening of Friday August 8, 2014.
