Painful as it is, following the tragic death of a Nigerian professor, Pius Adesanmi, in the ill-fated Boeing 737-800 MAX plane crash belonging to Ethiopian Airline on March 10, many people have taken to social media to mourn.

The death of Adesanmi; a Canada-based scholar, has been described as a terrible loss to the literary world. It is in this light that a candlelight gathering has been organized in Abuja.
