We commiserate with the families, associates & friends of the former Governor of Ondo & Lagos State, who later became the deputy or better put the Vice President to the then Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar during the military rule between 1998 & 1999, in the person of Retired Vice Admiral Mike Okhai Akhigbe, who sadly passed on to the great beyond age 68 at the weekend in London.

The former Chief of  Naval Staff, is said to have had a long battle with cancer, before finally succumbing to the cold hands of death this weekend.

After his retirement, he had gone on to read law, becoming an attorney and had ran his own law firm, specializing in maritime & real estate law.  He is said to have had a substantial investment in real estate.

He is survived by his wife & children. May the soul of the dearly departed rest in peace.
