My brother, friend and son of my late boss, Mohammed Fawehinmi, is gone. I am speechless and heartbroken.
I just spoke with the eldest daughter Basirat and she confirmed it. Mohammed was energetic and very intellectually alert, despite his mishap. He kept the flame of his father burning. We will sorely miss him.
