Menegian, son of the late environmental activist and poet, Ken Saro-Wiwa, has died of coronavirus in Britain.
He died on Monday after being hospitalised following COVID-19 complications.
Noo Saro-Wiwa, sister of the deceased, made this known on Thursday through a Facebook post.
She said her 1970-born brother had underlying health conditions before contracting the lethal virus.
She added that his late brother left a son, Louis.
“We said goodbye to my brother, Gian, on Monday. He had COVID-19 combined with underlying health conditions.
“Gian was the smartest and most talented out of all of us: a champion sprinter at school, a poet, an artist, budding engineer, a self-taught guitarist, and pianist. But mental health issues limited his life from age 16 onwards,” Noo wrote in a Facebook post.
