Obasanjo, who described Adekunle as a “friend, colleague and course mate”, said his contribution during the nation’s three years civil war was no mean effort, which would also be remembered for long a time.

The statement reads in parts: “I received with shock the news of the death of my colleague, friend and course mate, Gen. Benjamin Adekunle today. I can recall with profound memories what he was able to achieve as a course mate at Teshi, Accra Ghana.

“The late retired General, made a no mean contribution for the Nigerian civil war. His efforts would be forever remembered and May his soul rest in peace. I am very shocked about by this news today.

“His vacuum will be difficult to fill in the family, but, I pray for them to have the fortitude to bear this loss”.
