Missing Nigerian photo journalist Yinka Adeparusi found dead

Yinka Adeparusi, an award-winning Nigerian photo-journalist with online publication, Naij.com earlier declared missing, has died.

Naij announced in a statement published on its website that Mr. Adeparusi was killed in a motorcycle crash on Sunday, November 13th. Read their statement after the cut..

"NAIJ.com confirmed that he was involved in a motorcycle accident in Abuja and died on the spot," the statement said.

Mr. Adeparusi left his residence in Abuja suburb of Kugbo on Sunday afternoon with a message that he will be back. But when he didn’t return, his neighbours and later his colleagues became worried, especially when they couldn’t reach him on the phone.

"This was quite unusual because Yinka was a soft-spoken, very professional and clear-headed individual; not the kind of person to wander off," Naij.com said.

Adeparusi graduated from Lagos State University School of Communication, where he bagged double honours in Photojournalism and Cinematography and minor in mass communication.

In 2013, he received the People’s Choice Award for Human Rights Photography in Africa, German Development Media Awards and was the winner of the photojournalism award of the 6th Wole Soyinka Award for Investigative Reporting.

Yinka, looking at your calm and lovely face in this post I'm yet to come to terms that you are indeed gone.
You were such are cool-headed person and a master of your profession.
Within your brief stay in National Mirror you won several national and international awards in journalism practice.
I have never seen you angry; rather yoyu were always beaming with infectious smile.
YINKUS, as I fondly called you, your were a role model to so many young and aspring media practioners.
As I write, the seat you vacated in NATIONAL MIRROR is steering me in the face
Adieu friend and former colleague.
