Top physician and pro-democracy activist, Dr. Ore Falomo has died. Sources say he died early on Saturday during a brief illness.
The octogenarian made his hospital, Maryland Specialist Hospital reputable for eminent clients which included military leaders, monarchs, businessmen, diplomats and of course Chief MKO Abiola winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.
His relationship with Abiola went beyond clinical affairs as they became not just friends but soulmates in the realisation of the annulled mandate. As a result, he was subjected to all manner of psychological torture by the military, which denied him access to the detained winner of June 12, 1993 presidential poll at some point. He was equally detained by the Abacha junta.
